This 140-acre park currently consists of rolling hills and wooded terrain. The community is fortunate to have this land secured as a park for future generations!
The natural-surface hiking trails are marked; please stay on the trails. Dogs must be held on a 6′ leash; please use the provided “mutt mitts”. A public, portable restroom is available near the main parking lot.
Another unique aspect of Johnson Hills Park is the past residence of William McNeilan Johnson and his wife Marian B. Johnson. This beautiful historic home has a myriad of possible uses.
Construction on the improved park entrance and driveway at Johnson Hills Park is now complete.
As part of the Phase I Plan, this major infrastructure improvement includes a new vehicular access/entrance and driveway to the park off of Bridle Road. This new driveway leads to an ADA accessible main parking area.

Johnson Hills Park was opened to the public in September, 2007.
William McNeilan Johnson Hills Park (Johnson Park) became part of the Anderson Park District in June of 2000. The acquisition of this property was made possible by a variety of means: a generous donation from Marian Johnson (the previous owner of the property), a partnership with the Hamilton County Park District, and the sale of bonds by the APD to secure the remaining funding.
Use of a metal detector is not permitted at this park.
Use of the fire ring and/or camping requires a permit. Camping is available for Anderson Township resident based Scout Troops only.
