Hampton Ave.  Look for the Friends of Lincoln Park Banner.

Message from the County Parks Director

Park Staff ChartParks Director Guy Smith has asked us to share this information about the state of County Parks during the pandemic. Due to a loss in tax and fee revenue, Parks are facing unprecedented difficulty.
  • Park Staff levels are at an all time low, about 25% of a normal summer
  • Unfortunately this means unmowed grass and more trash.
  • Park staff are stressed and doing the best they can. We are all in his together, so please show your support for our Parks and their staff. Park Workers are Essential Workers!

All concerned citizens are invited to help in any way they can.  Friends of Lincoln Park can assist you in organizing a work crew or facilitate your desire to help in any way. Give us a shout at
