The City has an active park and recreation program offering a wide variety of venues. The City believes that having activities in our parks is essential for the enrichment and quality of life for our citizens and visitors.
Lincoln’s Landing is being developed as a fishing tournament site and picnic area. With a total of thirty-eight acres available a parking area for over three hundred and fifty trucks with trailers has been prepared. The site design was focused on providing a perfect venue for fishing tournaments. In addition to the tournament a portion of the park is devoted to family activities provided by small pavilions along the shore area. A large pavilion is also perfectly situated near the launch site. A long boardwalk and a number of piers have been constructed along the edge of the river. This facility is the largest public access site on Logan Martin Lake.
