** Due to construction improvements underway at W. M. Johnson Hills Park, reservation permits for camp outs, the fire ring, and events are unavailable through 2020.**
W. M. Johnson Hills Park is a 140-acre park that 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.
Johnson Hills Park was opened to the public in September, 2007.
William McNeilan Johnson Hills 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 B. Johnson (the previous owner of the property), a partnership with Great Parks of Hamilton County, 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.
