Lincoln Park Ribbon CuttingPosted: Jun 12, 2012
(TRACY, CA) – The City of Tracy is celebrating the re-opening of Lincoln Park with an official ribbon cutting on Tuesday, June 19th at 4:00 P.M. This joyous event follows a 14-month renovation.
Overdue infrastructure and cosmetic improvements made to the park considered by many as, a Tracy landmark and the ‘Grande Dame’ of the City’s park system. According to Don Scholl, Superintendent of Parks, Sports Fields and Trees:
“Lincoln Park received a much-needed facelift but retains its historical charm. The infrastructure improvements and new landscaping make it sustainable for future generations.”
Lincoln Park is one of the most heavily used parks in Tracy. It is home to a public art space, a rose garden, a picturesque gazebo; children’s play area and a splash pad. Parks and Community Services Commissioner Tim Jayne states,
“I have a lot of pride in Lincoln Park. It is our community park, so much goes on here, like the 4th of July celebration, Juneteenth, concerts in the park and community hosted car shows. Lincoln park is and continues to be the Crown Jewel of the Tracy Park system”
Community members may now use the park daily and rent spaces for events, picnics and gatherings by calling 209-831-6200.
Tracy City Council, Tracy Parks Commission, and all who contributed to the project will be present to celebrate the re-grand opening with all Tracy community members. This is great time to mingle with one another and it is anticipated that many members of the community who enjoy the park will be there to celebrate the re-christening of Lincoln Park 2.0.
