City Announces Full Closure of Lincoln Park Starting Sept. 25


The City of Greeley Parks division will close Lincoln Park, located at 800 10th Ave. in downtown Greeley, Sept. 25 through Oct. 31, weather permitting.

The closure will allow park crews to reseed the grass and complete tree trimming work throughout the park. After the work, periodic watering will be required throughout the day until the new grass is established. The park will remain closed until the grass becomes healthy enough to no longer require additional watering.

“Previously, crews have spot-treated areas due to high foot traffic and dry seasons,” said Jon Anaya, parks manager. “This year, over sixty percent of the park is in need of seeding and sod. Though inconvenient for visitors, closing the park while we work is much safer and more efficient.”

To keep Lincoln Park closed for renovations, the fences from the Downtown Development Authority’s Oktobrewfest—Sept. 23-24—will stay in place through this work. Visitors can access the sidewalks around the edges of the park but not the diagonal sidewalks within the park itself. The Portland Loo bathroom, located on the east side of Lincoln Park, will stay available. The Lincoln Park playground will be closed.

This project is paid for through the culture, parks, and recreation general operating budget.
