Johnston Commons Playground

The Johnston Commons Park is located at 6050 Morningside Drive. The Johnston Parks Committee and City Council understand the importance of diversifying the parks within our community. This playground is located at Johnston Commons, the green space near the Johnston Public Library. 

The design was chosen from a group of residents near the park as well as representatives from the Lions Club, City Council, Park Board, and the Library.

Project Update (4/7/23):
The shelter/restroom is located on the east side of the water, or northwest of the Johnston Public Library. Construction is anticipated to be complete in the spring. The shelter is expected to be complete by May 1. A ribbon-cutting event is scheduled for Monday, May 15 at 5:00 p.m.
