Lincoln Park occupies 7 acres located in the Hazelwood Neighborhood in SE Portland. Today the park is filled with recreational opportunities and gathering spaces for the surrounding community. However, prior to 1945 the character of the neighborhood was very different; it was primarily made up of rural farms and a few timber plots. The name Hazelwood is thought to be related to the prolific amount of hazelnut trees that had voluntarily grown in the area. It wasn’t until 1993 when the city annexed the area that Lincoln Park was transformed into today’s vibrant park.
This year the Park Tree Inventory will come to Lincoln Park. Volunteers from around the Portland area will spend the morning taking measurements, mapping, and identifying the trees. Organized in partnership with Lincoln Park's local invasive species pulling group, the tree inventory will provide the city and the neighborhood with a clearer picture of how the trees within Lincoln Park contribute to the health and character of the area.
