Johns Creek adopts park master plan

The Johns Creek City Council has adopted a Recreation and Parks Master Plan, designed to guide development, planning and changes to the city’s park system through 2026.

The plan OK’d Monday night includes several overarching recommendations, such as adding additional parks and locating them to improve geographic coverage within the city, adding recreational facilities for tournament sports and creating a citywide recreational greenway system. The process included surveys, community meetings and an assist from consultant Mark Cain Design Studios.

The city has already moved to beef up its park inventory by buying two large properties in the last six months that brought total park land to more than 300 acres.
