Founders Park is Johnson City’s newest park and is located in the heart of Downtown Johnson City.
The beautiful greenspace that greets visitors and residents as they enter our downtown district from the west, was designed through a storm water retention project. The lovely creek that flows through the center of the park was developed to help with a flooding problem that had plagued the downtown for decades.
Now, on a beautiful day, you will find folks taking a casual stroll, others admiring the sculptures that have been placed by the Public Arts Committee, musicians enjoying the open air pavilion and children flying a kite on the great lawn. The five acre water greenway has become a place to relax and enjoy nature as well as a catalyst for revitalization for downtown.
