What We're Doing
The National Park Service (NPS) is improving grassy areas at Lincoln Park by over-seeding the center panel. The result will be durable turf that is more tolerant of heavy use.
How You Can Help
We can keep the park fully open more of the time if the grass stays healthy. We can all play a part in taking care of the grass at Lincoln Park by following these steps:
1. Leash your pet. You'll keep others safe, and protect the grass. Also, its the law.
2. Observe closures. Give new grass a chance to grow strong. When the grass is ready to be played on, we'll take the fence down.
3. Stay off wet grass. If the ground is sloppy and wet, walking on it can compact the soil and damage the roots. If the grass is torn up, then we have to start another cycle of reseeding.
