I was actually born and raised in Lincoln Park. Though I've moved here and there over the years, the city is like a magnet and draws you back in. We recently just had an Elementary school reunion. That is how close the community is. You never forget those you grew up with! The concern though is like many cities, financial burdens have put our city in a bit of a slump. I'd like to see more businesses move in and our roads fixed. I'm still proud though, to call Lincoln Park Mi my home.

Lincoln Park is a good city from what I’m aware of. I think we should start recycling, I get upset with all the plastic I get and I feel bad to trash everything. Other neighboring cities recycle. My garage was broken into once. I haven’t had anymore problems since that incident. My neighbor hood is quiet and my neighbors get along good with each other. Our police department is good and there fast to respond when called.
The city is very nice. We live in family friendly suburbs. Many schools in the area, lovely neighborhoods. It is a good location and has many stores, restaurants, and near entertainment such as the movies. You can find nice homes in the area for good prices as well, so very affordable for first time home buyers. We love living here.
