Lincoln Park Conservancy



Seventeen historic monuments and four fountains grace Lincoln Park's 1,208 acres. In 1984, we began our Adopt-A-Monument Program to assist the Chicago Park District with the restoration of these artistic treasures with the generous support of corporate and private donors.
