Lincoln Park’s Adopt a Park Program.
Jaycee Park

The Lincoln Park Neighborhood Watch Program (NWP) is proud to support the city of Lincoln Park’s Adopt a Park Program.

We have chosen to adopt Jaycee Park, located at the corner of Harrison and Ferris. This is a small park, but has a playscape for younger children, a shelter, and a barbecue grill, as well as a basketball court.

As a part of the program, we will be responsible for visiting the park regularly to do minor clean up, such as picking up trash, pulling large weeds. Any major issues noted, such as graffiti, damaged equipment, should be reported to the program supervisor. In addition, we are required to hold at least one large public event at the park during the summer season.

We are reaching out to our members and asking you to help us support this effort to make our city a cleaner, safer place to live, work, and play.

Our first cleanup effort will be held on Saturday May 16th from 10:00 am until about 12:00 noon. We expect to be picking up trash, pulling weeds, and possibly painting the playscape, so wear work clothes, and bring your own gloves. Other supplies will be provided. Specific dates and times for subsequent organized group cleanups are undetermined at this time; we will notify you as soon as we have that information. In the meantime, please feel free to stop by Jaycee Park, or any of the parks in our city, whenever you have a chance.

For more information or to assist, please contact Mary Ellen Mitchell (Volunteer Coordinator) or Michael Parr (Program Coordinator) or by calling 313-381-3217.
