“People were stopping by to welcome me to the neighborhood when I was moving in! Lincoln Park has that neighborhood community feel I was looking for.”Denise C, resident
“Couldn’t have picked a better place to raise my boys – they are outside a lot more now that we live near the park and trails.”New Lincoln Park resident
Living in the Lincoln Park neighborhood means being close to downtown, affordable home-ownership, immediate connections to trails (the Cross City Trail, Superior Hiking Trail and the Duluth Traverse), great craft beverages (from kombucha to beer to cider, we have it all), a world-class hockey facility, a brand new middle school and a long history of getting things done.
But there is still work to do. Improvements to our infrastructure, designing enhancements to our recreational areas, exploring residents’ access to healthy food and working with the police department to improve safety.
Folks who live here know and look out for each other, and come together to help solve problems. As we move forward with projects that improve our neighborhood, resident input and involvement are always welcome and encouraged.

In 2017, an area within the Lincoln Park neighborhood (18th Av W on the eastern boundary, Carlton Street on the west, 1st Street West on the south, and 3rd Street West on the north) was designated by the City of Duluth as a Specialized Improvement Area (SIA) to help address blighted, vacant, and under-maintained properties. By identifying problem properties and creating solutions through enhancing existing and adding needed programs, we can both address the needs of this area and serve as a testing ground for city-wide solutions. One such program is listed below. Keep an eye here for future updates in the Lincoln Park SIA.
Rental Energy Upgrade Program
Beginning with a $50,000 US Bank Places to Play grant secured by Ecolibrium3, plans to improve our neighborhood namesake park have snowballed into what will become the most accessible park in Duluth. Momentum and additional funding from local supporters, the City of Duluth, the Super Bowl Legacy Fund, and the National Park Service mean that the jewel Lincoln Park Park will shine brightly into the future. Take a look at the plans below. Construction begins Spring 2019 and we can’t wait!
