Johns Creek Recreation Survey
Recreation And Parks Strategic Plan

This survey is part of the City's effort to prepare a Recreation and Parks Strategic Plan. Your input will be used to develop the recommendations for future improvements to existing parks, acquiring land for new parks, developing new parks, improving recreation programs, and creating trails and linkages between parks and other amenities.
