Johns Creek is full of fun possibilities to enjoy the outdoors. Whether you're looking for a morning of fly fishing, a day on the links, a round of tennis, or a leisurely afternoon of rafting, Johns Creek offers lots of choices for you and your family. 

Johns Creek has 13 miles of the Chattahoochee River, (know as The "Hooch"), which is famous for its trout. With five units of the National Park Service's Chattahoochee National Recreation Area either in or immediately adjacent to Johns Creek, rafting and kayaking are popular pastimes as are the national park's wooded walking trails and picnic areas.

The Johns Creek Greenway, Autrey Mill Nature Preserve & Heritage Center, Newtown Park, Ocee Park, and Shakerag Park also provide many walking and hiking options.

With a mild climate, golf and tennis are pretty much year-round sports in Johns Creek, and two of the most popular reasons why people relocate here. 

There are seven 18-hole championship courses and two 9-hole courses on private and public courses, all within a five mile radius of each other. Johns Creek was the Host City of the 2011 PGA Championship, and the U.S. Amateur Championship in 2014.

More members of the Atlanta Lawn Tennis Association (ALTA) live in Johns Creek than any other metro Atlanta community. Recognized by tennis players around the world, ALTA's 80,000 members promote amateur tennis tournaments and junior tennis development.
