Dear Friend,
After Frederick Law Olmsted finished designing New York's Central Park, he headed west, eventually arriving in Milwaukee.  Here he proposed a series of parks, anchoring an "Emerald Necklace" around the city.  He envisioned parks as great "Democratizers", places that brought together neighborhoods and people from all walks of life. In our own Lincoln Park, we have so many amenities (sport fields, paddling, swimming, golf etc.) that we cannot imagine what our neighborhoods would do without it.  Yet parks today are being left to fend for themselves.  After decades of "deferred maintenance" they are literally falling apart.  It's up to the citizens to come forward and defend them.  Friends of Lincoln Park holds its Annual Meeting on the first Tuesday in March and it's your opportunity to step forward and be part of this a group of friends celebrating and defending this park.

Safe Parks Enhance Community Wellness

Well used and maintained parks are a great asset to communities. But if they become unsafe, they can be a liability and lose their value. If we want people to continue using the park, the perception of safety is every bit as important as actual safety, This year's annual meeting is an opportunity to speak with game changers who are committed to community and park safety. This great panel will be with us to address and listen to your concerns.  We hope you will join us.
