“I like living in Lincoln Park for the beauty of the park and being able to afford my home.” – Karen F, resident and “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 many of things: it’s close to downtown, rent and home ownership are reasonable and residents have immediate connections to the Cross City Trail, Superior Hiking Trail, and Grand Traverse. It means great beer, a world-class hockey facility, and a brand new middle school.

But that doesn’t mean there isn’t work to do. Lincoln Park has struggled with a negative neighborhood perception that is most often undeserved. 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.
