  • Great green space in downtown Johnson City! The park layout and landscaping creates a series of spaces, from the amphitheatre to the creek, and the great lawn. There is a changing selection of statues and art along the sidewalks. The park hosts many events throughout the year, including outdoor yoga, founders after 5 free concerts, Shakespeare in the park, and many festivals. There is even a citizen science project at the west end of the park, where you can learn about the flooding problems in Johnson City and report the current water level of the creek.
  • Founders Park is 5 acres of green space, farmers market, a walking trail that is pet friendly and full of Sculptures, trees and flowers! It’s a free venue with lots of upcoming actives in the coming weeks. A lovely, leisurely place to be.
