As we were walking through Washington looking for a coffee shop we stumbled upon Lincoln Park. As with any big park there’s not much there really apart from a statue of Lincoln. Not particularly interesting unless you’re with children who need a run around in...More

More of a dog park as it has a large dog area. My young girls were not impressed with the playground area. But overall it's a very safe and friendly park. Sit and read or walk/ run it's nice.

Seems like it is a popular place for dog owners to take their four legged friends here. The park isn't very large, however it is still nice and peaceful with only limited amounts of traffic on the roads surrounding the park.
