We encourage you to checkout our lapidary and stained glass shop, the ceramics studio, and the full service woodshop. For those with little ones we have an early childhood center filled with fun and exciting programs. Enjoy one of our special events in the auditorium or take a dance lesson in the dance studio. AWARDS: The American Planning Association (APA) 2010 National Planning Excellence, Leadership, and Achievement Awards honor the outstanding planning initiatives and individuals of the previous year. APA singled out Lincoln Park as one of the 2009 Great Public Spaces in America, for its world class amenities, historic landmarks and buildings, and for the wide range of activities available to park users. Most notably, Lincoln Park is the result of a long-standing commitment by city leaders and citizens to protect 1,200 acres of some of Chicago's most valuable lakefront real estate for the public's use and benefit.

Funds will benefit the Lincoln Park Conservancy's educational programs and more. Start shopping at http://lincolnparkconservancy.org
Sale ends Sunday, November 29, while supplies lasts. *Safe pick-up details provided at the time of purchase.

Plus, you'll be supporting the work of the Lincoln Park Conservancy, the non-profit that supports Chicago’s largest and most visited Park!
The Lincoln Park Conservancy will sell the nearly 700 gold, orange, and dappled pink poinsettias grown in the greenhouses behind the Conservatory since June. The money raised from the sale will help the Conservancy run educational programs, purchase special plants, enrich seasonal shows, and feed the fish in the Conservatory. Please visit LincolnParkConservancy.org to learn more about the sale. Deck your halls with beautiful and unique holiday flowers!
Online sales begin Friday, November 13 and end Sunday, November 29 or when all plants are sold. All plants must be picked up in-person (Covid-compliant) at the Lincoln Park Conservatory between December 3, 2020 and December 6, 2020.

Thank you Lincoln Park Cultural Center for the Graduation day. The past 3 and half years were wonderful transitioning from tot classes to kiddie college. We watched our child grow, make friends, play fun games, explore nature, learn, get messy making art, dance and become strong practicing gymnastics. Keep up the good work and wish you all the best for the next generation :)
Wonderful graduation ceremony today. Thanks to all who made it happen.
