Share on Facebook Share on Twitter Share on Linkedin Email this link

The Town of Lincoln will be making enhancements to parks near you! Keep up to date by checking back as we update this page with new projects, information, photos and surveys. We also encourage you to leave questions and comments in the box at the bottom of this page.


Say How You Play!

Enhancements are coming to Angelina Macri Prokich Park, Vineland Neighbourhood Park, Rittenhouse Park and Jack Simpson Park! When Lincoln residents engage and contribute to park design, it enables the Town to build better parks and the public continues to enjoy and care for places they helped to create. It is truly the people who use these spaces that make a difference and help to define them as places the community can enjoy spending time in. We want to hear from YOU! Please participate by completing the surveys.





Resurfacing Lincoln's Play Spaces

Outdoor community play spaces provide flexible, unstructured play opportunities for Lincoln's children and youth. For a play space to fully serve the community, it must consider abilities of all levels. Play space surfaces are one of the most important components in designing safe, accessible spaces. Rubber surfacing enables children and youth of varying abilities to participate and socialize with their peers through play.

Currently, most playgrounds in Lincoln utilize wood mulch chips as the safety surfacing. Through the Government of Canada and the Government of Ontario's ICIP: Community Culture and Recreation - Rehabilitation and Renovation Grant Funding, the Town of Lincoln will be resurfacing all mulch play spaces with poured in place rubber, including:

Additionally, the multi-use court at Ashby Drive Park was resurfaced with asphalt through this grant funding.


Water Bottle Refill Stations

Water botttle refill stations are not currently in any Town of Lincoln parks, however three park locations will be selected for a test pilot project. More information to come.

Please feel free to leave any comments in the question/comments box below.


Jack Simpson Park Pathway

A new pathway at Jack Simpson Park will be installed to connect from Drake Avenue to Cameron Avenue. Exact location is to be determined.

The Town would also like to hear what additional amenities/enhancements you would like to see added to this park in the future (ie. picnic tables, swings, other play elements, more lighting, etc.). Please provide your specific ideas by completing this survey.

Proposed Pathway in Jack Simpson Park - Exact Location TBD
