Friends of Lincoln Park

Phase I Complete ... Now On to Phase II!

Phase I of our restoration plan has been a success! None of this could have been done without the support, generosity, and encouragement of many people and organizations: the City of Portland, the Portland Public Art Committee, our Trustees, grant donors, and individual donations ranging from $10 on up. Thank you all!

Friends of Lincoln Park is now entering Phase II of our Master Plan, which calls for the total restoration of this historic landmark:

  • The City of Portland is to undertake the refurbishment of the wrought-iron fencing and granite piers section by section, slated to begin next spring!
  • Personalized Bench Campaign: we have ordered thirteen new World's Fair benches to add to the Park, and we are seeking donors to sponsor them with personalized plaques!
  • The two Victorian Gardens will be completed, with perennial and annual flowers and plants!
  • Securing donors to continue Pandora's Winter Lighting each year!
  • Scheduling special events throughout the year!

We all have a lot to celebrate in our joint efforts to see this historic landmark restored to its original glory, so please continue with your outstanding work in seeing the completion of our goal.

Thank you again!
