Overview

In 1905, “West Side Park”, as it was originally called, was designed by landscape architect Charles Lowrie and Daniel W. Langston and features multiple historical points of interest. “Lincoln the Mystic”, a seated statue of the US President, was sculpted by James Earle Fraser. It was dedicated on June 14, 1930 when the park was given its current name of Lincoln Park. The park honors history through several monuments, such the Irish Famine Memorial, Civil War Solider statue, James T. Farrier Firefighter Memorial, and by the display of two historic cannons and sun houses.

Lincoln Park is a central location for a variety of frequently updated athletic facilities, including 21 tennis courts, 7 baseball/softball diamonds, basketball courts, handball courts, soccer fields, an artificial surface multipurpose field, a running track, a cross-country course, and a horseshoe pit. Children are sure to have a great time at the two playgrounds and the spray pool area in the summer. Visitors can take advantage of full-length trails, barbeque areas, or the enclosed dog run. Hudson County is also looking forward to the addition of a 9-hole public golf course in Lincoln Park West, a first for County park facilities.

To complement the Eastern Park’s ponds and landscaped greenery, Lincoln Park West is an exceptional collection of open space with preserved natural habitats and areas to engage visitors. The centerpiece of this area is the fishing-accessible Edgewood Lake.

The park also has a 9 hole golf course.
