Bigelow Park, which includes the Monroe Township Hall and Opera House, is open to the public and maintained and operated by the Village of Johnstown. The park contains a bandstand (gazebo), park benches, green space, and a brick seating area surrounding a clock. Bigelow Park is a main gathering point for festivals, events, and village activities throughout the year. Although a portion of the park is owned by Monroe Township, a resolution passed on March 6, 2010, recognized that the Village of Johnstown would represent the township during project decision-making and be the Official with Jurisdiction over Bigelow Park.

Johnstown Trailhead Park
The Johnstown Trailhead Park is located at 187 E. Jersey Street in Johnstown.
In March 2015 the Thomas J. Evans Foundation purchased approximately 4 acres at the trailhead of the T.J. Evans bike path in Johnstown. The foundation then turned around and leased the property to the village at no charge.The Village of Johnstown maintains and cares for the Johnstown Trailhead and bike path that is within their corporation limits.
Since that time the Village of Johnstown and the Downtown Johnstown, Inc. organization have gradually made improvements and additions to the site known as the Johnstown Trailhead Park. Johnstown Trailhead Park Improvements include:
Rolling Meadows Park
Rolling Meadows Park, created in 1977, is located in the Rolling Meadows Subdivision in Johnstown, Ohio. It is on Parkside Drive. After many years of neglect, the park was given a new life through a NatureWorks Grant and the Village of Johnstown in 2017. This funding allowed for the park to get a much needed shelter house, as well as complete new playground equipment.
