The community enjoys a number of free and nominal cost events in the park facilities, and a Founders Day parade celebrating the city's official incorporation on Dec. 1, 2006.

The Chattahoochee River borders the length of Johns Creek, adding to a diversity of leisure activities. With a mild climate, these can be enjoyed pretty much year-round and is a popular reason why people relocate here.
