Historical Information
This site is named after an early pioneer family whose original land claim included this 6-acre wilderness area. The Johnson family encouraged public use of its property for recreational purposes, sponsoring 4th of July picnics and fireworks. Nestled in a natural gorge along the banks of Johnson Creek, the site was donated to the City of Portland in 1940.
