Johns Creeks’ Great Outdoor Amenities

Written by Mayor Mike Bodker

As our warmer and normal spring-time temperatures have finally overcome the winter chill, it’s that time of year to take our active lifestyles outside again, and enjoy all that our city has to offer.

Between Johns Creek’s four parks, three national park recreation areas, and thirteen miles of the Chattahoochee River, outdoor opportunities abound. The City staff is continuing to move forward with construction documents and design concepts on five new parks as well. Please be on the lookout for document access notifications on the City’s Facebook and Twitter sites, on your neighborhood NextDoor platform, and via the City’s monthly electronic newsletter.

One of the great attributes of our exceptional city is the active lifestyle our community both enjoys and looks to maintain. It has become such an identity of ours that the “iHeart Johns Creek” resolution was passed, which recognizes the strength of our city to become a healthcare innovation and wellness destination of choice.

The iHeart Johns Creek resolution also highlights the City’s desire to seek a unique identity that builds on preserving its residential footprint, enhances opportunities for community engagement, and supports business development and innovation opportunities. It also intends to leverage the City’s existing strengths and assets to create a lasting legacy for its residents.

With the adoption of iHeart Johns Creek, the City Council has directed the staff to incorporate health and wellness into strategic planning framework and facilitate collaboration and partnerships with local business and residential organizations, neighboring cities, and other related organizations.

Please continue to remain engaged with the City online, and periodically take a look at the City’s calendar ( for all the great outdoor activities we have planned, as we head into summer.

As always, please don’t hesitate to reach out to me with any questions or ideas you have regarding our recreation and parks offerings, or any other topics regarding Johns Creek you would like to discuss.
