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

About the Friends of Lincoln Park

In 2013, the Friends of Lincoln Park was formed with the mission of restoring the park to its original condition, with the participation and support of the City of Portland. Over the last three years, we obtained funding from several organizations and foundations which allowed us to contract with professional conservators and landscape architects to develop a comprehensive Master Plan for the revitalization of the park. With our Landscape Rehabilitation Plan, and Fountain Reconstruction Treatment plans in hand, the time has come to carry out the restoration of the 1870 fountain and its surrounding structures, which must be coordinated with the walkway repairs, tentatively planned for Spring, 2017.
