The lush 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 troubled the downtown area for decades.
Now, you will find folks taking a casual stroll on a splendid day, 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.
The address for your GPS to find Founders Park is 120 Commerce St, Johnson City, TN 37604
