Grace Johnson Park

Address: Along Clear Creek west of N. Wadsworth Blvd., between W. 48th & 49th Aves., Wheat Ridge, 80033

The park was given by Judge Samuel Wallace Johnson to the Wheat Ridge Lion's Club, which gave it to the Wheat Ridge Recreation District. When the City of Wheat Ridge was incorporated in 1969, the Wheat Ridge Recreation District disbanded and all property was given to the city. It is now a segment of the Green Belt. Biking and walking paths, a playground, picnic tables, fishing, the natural environment, and rest rooms are the varied facilities here.
