Johnston Commons Playground

The Johnston Parks Committee and City Council understand the importance of diversifying the parks within our community. In 2021, playground equipment and a full basketball court will be added to 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 (6/17/21):
The Johnston Park Board has been working with the Johnston Commons playground designer to develop a plan to make the playground wheelchair accessible and look at other playground amenities that may be added.

The anticipated start date will be September 2021. The basketball court is ready and lines will be painted soon.

Contractor: Cunningham Recreation.

Cost: $150,000
