Time for a a Rest at Lincoln Park
A hundred years ago, Eastlake was the most popular park in the city. People loved to stroll around its manmade lake. Shortly before WWI, the park was renamed Lincoln Park to fit with the surrounding neighborhood of Lincoln Heights. A century later, it is still a beautiful and vibrant park.
Soc Sci 127 student Carson Tullio brought his dad, who spent much of his life around Lincoln Park and the surrounding neighborhood. The elder Tullio talked about an ostrich farm, allegator farm and other attractions that were once nearby. The area was a good one for attractions because it was centrally-located and well-served by streetcars.
