Johnson Park offers four picnic areas, an open picnic shelter, and an enclosed shelterhouse for group events. The picnic areas and the open shelter generally accommodate up to 120 people each, with fifteen picnic tables. The open shelter includes a double grill while each picnic area has a single grill.

The enclosed shelter was built in 1937 and features a large open main room with dark wood interior and a fieldstone fireplace. The shelter also includes a full kitchen. It seats up to 150 people on rustic-style wooden picnic tables. Outside, a large porch wraps around three sides overlooking the park. There are also twelve outdoor picnic tables adjacent to the shelter for larger events.
