Residents want and need the newly designed Lincoln Park to be a safe, comfortable, and flexible space that people from all walks of life can enjoy.
WE WANT TO HEAR FROM YOU!
By tapping into our team’s experience of successfully developing and implementing vibrant downtown urban cores (including Millennium Park in Chicago), we have created a new 9-acre outdoor space that will accommodate one or thousands of visitors. The core principles of the Lincoln Park design include making the park accessible and porous, increasing the user population and thoughtfully integrating a permanent and flexible program that brings vitality to the site. This space should reflect the City of Long Beach and its residents—and be a place that will serve as a public gathering space for the entire community.
We've listened to public feedback and have incorporated many of those suggestions into our design—take a look at a few of the park features:
Integrated cultural and history loop
Permanent and rotating art installations
Outdoor classrooms to promote library activities
Varied garden zones for learning and exploration
Outdoor classroom areas to support library activities
