Summertime means both leisure and activity times in Lincoln Park. Above, a family tends their plot inside one of the many community gardens throughout Chicago. A warm sunny day brings out the many dog owners to one of several beaches set aside for dogs. Last year a dogwash vending kiosk appeared and this year a second has arrived. The park hosts hundreds of persons relaxing and reading, sleeping, eating, sunning, boating, biking, scootering and just chilling. It is a great iconic park. We moved six years ago from the suburbs to the city and I feel like I did not lose the lush greens of suburbia.
