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.
