Welcome to the Johnny Appleseed Metropolitan Park District

Whatever your age there is something to enjoy by everyone at the Johnny Appleseed Metropolitan Park District! Whether it's fishing, camping, picnicking, hiking, swimming or Frisbee disc golf you can find it at one of our 12 park locations plus so much more! The parks are open daily year round and locked at dark with the exception of Ottawa Metro Park, which is open 24 hours a day.

 HELP SAVE THE WILDFLOWERS!!!

This is a great opportunity to join with other nature enthusiasts to help make a difference in your parks.  We need your help to pull garlic mustard and pick up trash in our forested natural areas.  Garlic Mustard (a non-native species from Europe) secretes toxins into the soil and kills many spring woodland wildflowers if left uncontrolled. 

 

Please help us keep the Park District's outstanding wildflower regions looking their best.  Call or email Land Steward Mark Mohr to sign up for this project.  Phone 419-221-1232 or mmohr@jampd.com.
