HEY THERE MEET UP FRIENDS!

Lots of new things in store for our Park in the year. Invite more to our MEET UP to find out about more of the community coolness in Downtown Long Beach.

Keep Checking back here and at our Facebook page for updates on upcoming events! 

Just about a year ago two people, Michelle Molina and Kraig Kojian, were walking through Lincoln Park and realized that this park needs to be brought back to the people of Downtown Long Beach. Like many parks that get left unattended to the drug, crime and prostitution rate went up and less and less people felt safe to bring their families there.. or even walk through to get to the library or City Hall. FOLP was born.  

Many people got involved and were sitting at the table for that first meeting:

Long Beach Health an Human ServicesLong Beach Police Dept. and their Quality of Life TeamThe DLBA (Downtown Long Beach Associates, Kraig Kojian is President)

Mental Health America -The Village Local Neighborhood Associations and The Downtown Residential Council

The Port of Long Beach

Long Beach Convention and Visitors Bureau

Long Beach Homeless CoalitionDDR leasing

City Place Managers 1st and 2nd Districts Council Politicians and Staff

Long Beach Office Of Sustainability

Local small Business Owners and Residents

ALL wanting to participate somehow in the Activation of Long Beach's Oldest Park

The Egg Rock and Roll was our first event and was a HUGE success with so much support. The park was ALIVE. Since then Team Activation has grown to now have two on going events at the park and have had 3 more successful larger events since The Egg Rock and Roll. 
Since FOLP started the activation of the park in January, We have also embraced the education of ourselves regarding The Homeless and the Mental Health of many that have lived at Lincoln Park for so long. 

Join us : Volunteer, LIKE our Facebook Page, participate in one of our ongoing events like Free and Fit or Picnic in the Park or Larger events like our Egg Rock and Roll in April .
We are all Friends of Lincoln Park :)
