Friends of Lincoln Park

“Let us secure for ourselves and for our children a beauty spot in the midst of our growing city – a breathing place for all the thousands who are to come after us.” — Portland Transcript, 1856

Hear Ye, Hear Ye!

We need to raise funds immediately to complete restoration work on the historic fountain and basin in Portland's oldest park!

Good news! The City of Portland will be repaving the park's walkways this fall. This means we have to act now to restore the fountain's basin and plumbing while the walkways surrounding them are dug up. Once the paving is finished, we'll lose our chance to re-plumb and re-found the fountain and basin.

So here's the plan: we need to coordinate the restoration of the 1870 fountain and basin with the walkway paving, which is currently scheduled to start in September. You can read more about the plan here!

Please help! We must raise $170,000 by this fall to carry out this plan, and we can't do it without you!
