Lincoln Park: Peaceful Gem in the Heart of Zionsville
Lincoln Park is a small, one acre park located in the heart of Zionsville, Indiana, a suburb of Indianapolis. This Zionsville park is a green space in the middle of downtown Zionsville, a quiet place for reflection, rest, and relaxation. Roughly a block long, Lincoln Park is an oasis in the normally busy hub of Zionsville businesses, people, and commerce that is downtown Zionsville; it’s the perfect place to stop and rest your feet after a busy day of Zionsville shopping.
The park got its name from a 1861 visit from then President-Elect Abraham Lincoln. Lincoln was on his way to Washington to take office when he took a brief stop at the Zionsville Train Depot, which stood at the current site of Lincoln Park, to address the citizens of Zionsville. A memorial marker to Lincoln’s address was erected by the Zionsville Lions Club in 1956. The marker reads: “Abraham Lincoln enroute to Washington as President Elect on February 11, 1861 addressed the Citizens of Zionsville at the Railroad Depot which stood on this site.”
Lincoln Park is a beautiful gem of a park, a true Zionsville attraction. Amenities at Lincoln Park include a fountain, several benches, and picnic tables. There is also a gorgeous gazebo located at the northern end of the park that’s used for many different Zionsville events, including weddings, banquets, and other get-togethers. The gazebo is also the site of the Lincoln Park Concert Series, a Zionsville music event that takes place every Wednesday evening from June through July. Listening to the relaxing sounds of Indianapolis bands and Indianapolis music organizations in the peaceful confines of Lincoln Park is a good way to spend a summer evening.
