Johnstone Park - Area Two
Area 2, the Peninsula Area of Johnstone Park, has shelters, picnic facilities, a well furnished playground for the youngsters, an exercise oriented walking path with benches, a sand box for the children, swings and restrooms and plenty of parking including handicapped locations. It is a beautiful shaded park with huge pecan and oak trees, and a trail offering great views of the river lazily snaking around its edge.

A recent addition is a grove of historical trees and the identification of 8 Centennial trees over a century old. For more on these trees click the Arboretum Guide above.

Across the river from this shelter are the remains of the first business in Bartlesville, the Jake Bartles mill. Mr. Bartles moved his merchandise store to Dewey after the town's other merchants decided to establish on the opposite bank of the river.
