LINCOLN CENTRAL PARK
Lincoln Central Park is located at the northwest corner of Lincoln Avenue and Dickens and is administered by the Chicago Department of Transportation. As a result of active involvement by a number of nearby residents, Lincoln Central Association and Alderman Vi Daley, the park was totally redesigned and rebuilt in 1999 and dedicated on June 4, 2000. The entire project was funded by Mayor Daley’s Fountain Program. Now, you can help support Lincoln Central Park! The centerpiece of the park is an attractive metal fountain. The park is beautifully landscaped and benches, which invite passers by to sit and relax, surround the central fountain plaza area.
Lincoln Central Association continues to implement improvements to the park to enhance its appearance. In 2009 and 2010, a special campaign to revive the park’s appearance resulted in the planting of additional greenery along Dickens Street and Lincoln Avenue and in the area west of the fountain. Individuals interested in getting involved in further enhancing the park are encouraged to contact Lincoln Central (Voice Mail: 312-409-2783) or by email.
