Friends of Lincoln Park

Friends of Lincoln Park and the Lincoln Park Neighborhood Association banned together this year to help spruce up parts of Lincoln Park. Through work days, several volunteers set out to clear the volunteer trees, weeds, brush and poison ivy away from the beautiful waterfall nestled into the side of the hill next to Lincoln Park’s lagoon. Special attention was given to the sign boxes last year in for the "Springfield In Bloom" contest. In addition to red tulips, they were splashed with color and received special recognition in the competition. Volunteers also met with the Park District to help identify the perfect location for the re-installation of the historic bridge pillars. These pillars will be placed in the 5th Street plantings for all to enjoy. The Friends of Lincoln Park will be important participants for the planning and execution of the Lagoon dedication now scheduled for the July 8th, 2010 at 6:30pm. The bricks, lamp posts and benches will soon be placed around the Lagoon area so make sure to get your memorial orders in soon.
