Tidbits of Interest
Like many of the 'Downriver Area' cities and towns in southern Wayne County, Lincoln Park offers residents the distinct advantage of waterfront vistas, whether Lake Erie or the Detroit River. Modest bungalow style homes predominate along the tree shaded streets of the welcoming neighborhoods, although some townhomes and condominiums dot the area to offer a maintenance free lifestyle. Family oriented Lincoln Park can point with pride to its 126 acres of parks and greenbelts as well as the Olympic sized municipal swimming pool, hockey rink, roller-skating arcade, ice arena, tennis courts, playgrounds, picnic areas, and concert bandshell. Balancing the residential neighborhoods and vast recreational amenities are small warehouses, an industrial park, and such local employers as the Ford Motor Glass Tech Center, Detroit Editor, and Michigan Consolidated Gas. Situated in close proximity to the airport, downtown Detroit, Canada, and Ohio, this area enjoys a strategic location and transportation conveniences. Interstate 75, one of Michiganís major thoroughfares, bisects the city and forms a valuable connection to the City of Detroit and key regional destinations.
