Located in between the Gordon Tafe, Government Buildings, (Revamped) Geelong Library and Art Gallery, Railway Station, Geelong Courthouse and Police station and Performing Arts centre is a lovely park to relax in on a hot day and location for several Geelong festivals

great place to have sit on the grass and eat your lunch or even take a book along to read, can get a little busy on a nice day but still plenty of space for everyone.

When we lived in West Geelong we often walked into town, we always walked through Johnson park and often sat for awhile on a bench. Good attractions over Christmas and New Year
