Newly incorporated in December 2006, Johns Creek is a young, thriving city in northeast Fulton County. The city was created from the previously unincorporated eastern portion of northern Fulton County, with Roswell to the west and south, Gwinnett County to the east, Alpharetta to the northwest, and Forsyth County to the north. Named for the stream that runs through the area on its way to the Chattahoochee River, nearly 60,000 people call Johns Creek home. Ample parks and greens provide recreational opportunities for residents. Set on 46 forest acres, Autrey Mill Nature Preserve and Heritage Center is one of the city's most-cherished public spaces and offers hiking trails, a nature center, and a collection of historic buildings, including a farmhouse, a chapel, a church, a barn, and an old country store. Additionally, The Chattahoochee River National Recreation Area has several hiking trails, pavilions, and boat launch facilities in the Johns Creek area.
With a rapidly growing business and medical district at the crossroads of Highway 141 and McGinnis Ferry Road, John's Creek has a vigorous economy and award-winning North Fulton County schools, making it a hot spot for growth. Already, it is Georgia's 10th largest city. With convenience to I-285, GA 400, and I-85, as well as major roadways like GA 120, GA 141, and McGinnis Ferry Road, high-end communities and great neighborhoods are in the area, with a wide mix of housing choices.
