The Gala for Lincoln Park

The Gala for Lincoln Park:  June 22nd, 2023

Saddle & Cycle Club

If you’ve spent time in Lincoln Park, you know it’s full of wonders.

Each year, the Conservancy hosts the “Wonders of the Park” Gala for Lincoln Park. The event forms our largest fundraiser of the year and helps support our work to:

  • Engage volunteers to support the Park’s natural areas and cultural treasures,
  • Fund and manage park improvements, large and small,
  • Maintain our long-term commitment to adopted park sites, and
  • Better the Park for all communities bordering its 1,200 acres.


In 2022, we hosted our most successful Gala yet, but we’re not resting on our laurels! With your help and the partnership of our generous volunteers, donors and sponsors, we can make 2023 even better. Event details will be posted here as they develop, so be sure to check back.
