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

Groundbreaking This Thursday!

Please join the Friends of Lincoln Park and the Portland Parks, Recreation and Facilities Department on Thursday, April 13th at 4:00 PM for a short groundbreaking ceremony to kick off the Lincoln Park Rehabilitation Plan. Refreshments will be served!

We will gather at 4:00 PM for remarks and a celebration of the partnership between the City of Portland and the Friends of Lincoln Park. The Rehabilitation Plan calls for restoration of the walkways and Parisian fountain, which will occur this spring. In future phases, the park's original cast-iron fence – still standing today – will be restored, new trees will be planted, and several new World's Fair benches will be installed.

So drop by the park this Thursday at 4:00 and join the celebration!

Park Progress

It's happening! Tito Construction will be breaking ground to rebuild Lincoln Park's walkways this Thursday!

Meanwhile, the restoration of the park's fountain, begun last fall, is almost complete – it's slated to make its triumphant return very soon.

We can't wait to see the fountain back where it belongs, surrounded by fresh, smooth pavement. Because of your support, Portland's oldest public park will soon look better than it has in decades! Thank you!
