Lincoln Park

Lincoln Park is situated to the west of downtown Duluth. The neighborhood is defined by Interstate 35 to the south, Skyline Parkway to the north, 40th Avenue West to the west, and West 15th Avenue to the east. Highway 53 cuts through Lincoln Park, somewhat isolating the eastern portion of the neighborhood.

Straddling Miller Creek, and encompassing 35 acres, is Lincoln Park, the heart of the neighborhood. One of the oldest parks in Duluth, Lincoln Park was originally named Garfield Park during it's creation in 1890. With natural features including waterfalls, gorges, glacier-formed landscapes, and 120-year-old trees, it has been a popular stopping place for tourists and Duluthians alike for over a hundred years.

Lincoln Park is predominately residential, with single family and multi-family homes inter-mixed with small businesses, community and institutional buildings and industrial sites. The main residential transportation corridor is along Third Street, with major commercial and industrial traffic on Michigan and Superior Streets. 

The Lincoln Park Business District stretches from Garfield to 40th Ave. West along Superior Street and Michigan Avenue. The Lincoln Park Business Group is leading efforts to attract, retain and expand existing businesses in Lincoln Park.
