  • Grew up 1 blocks from this magical place. It was like my own private backyard. We spent hours in this Park It is still one of my favorite places on earth.

  • This park seems to be a touch hidden, but if you're looking for a good walking area to get lost in, it's worth the extra search. The trails are pretty, fun, and well-maintained.

  • So the nice thing about this park is it meets a variety of use cases. That said, my use case, going for a nice quiet easy hike, is more suitable at like Seward Park or Discovery Park. The reason for that is Lincoln Park has some soccer fields which get busy during the weekend (you can avoid them and the noise on your walk, but takes some effort). There's also a staircase down to a beautiful coastline view, but for me it's a bit too much effort, and I can see the coast at Seward without the hike down or back up. So, for someone who wants more exercise (the stairs) or to play soccer, this place is probably better than others. Just depends on what you're looking for.
  • Beach + trails not too busy.
