Friends of Lovelace Park

Escape to Lovelace Park! Many things may be closed right now, but our fabulous park with its open spaces and natural beauty is still available to us. If you take a pic while you’re there, we’d love to see it. Email pics to LovelacePark at outlook dot com and we’ll put it up in our Photo Gallery.

We’ve had a little rain. Sigrid was at the park on Sunday, May 17th after the downpours we had over the weekend. There was just a little bit of water over the walkway:

Here’s hoping we dry out a bit this week and are soon back to strolling the path!

Update-  Sigrid, our intrepid leader, discovered on Monday, May 18th that not all Evanston residents found the flooding to be inconvenient:


Our Mission Statement

We are a group of neighbors living near and enjoying this wonderful recreational resource. We are committed to enhancing the park and assisting the City’s Maintenance Crew by volunteering for the following tasks:

  • Mulching the trees correctly. Click here for a diagram.
  • Working with City Crew when planting new trees to select the proper spots (not in the sledding area).
  • Establishing a pollinator garden to attract butterflies, bees, and other pollinators.
  • Collaborating with other organizations in collecting litter and debris.
  • Offering our services when needed or requested by City Crew.
