Established in 1889, this neighborhood park located by Lincoln High School is home to a significant tree collection similar in character to Wright Park's.
In 1889 the Tacoma Land Company donated 40 acres of land for use as a park in the south end to the City of Tacoma. The park was originally known as South Park. In 1901 the Park Commissioners officially changed the name to Lincoln Park in honor of President Abraham Lincoln. Read more about the history of Lincoln Park.
