Sharon Johnston Park is an outdoor, recreational park under the auspices of the Madison County Commission. The park is open daily from sunrise until dark.

The park includes:
- Twelve acre fishing lake stocked annually with catfish, brim, crappie, and bass
- Olympic size swimming pool where children can take swimming lessons and participate on Sharon Johnston Swim Team
- Campground facilities
- Small picnic shelters and large pavilions with open air barbecue grills
