Lincoln Park Gateway Restored

I recently joined longtime Lincoln Heights residents to celebrate the restoration of a historical landmark--the Lincoln Park Gateway. This park is the original site of the Los Angeles Zoo. The gateway, built in an early Art Deco style in 1931, features four major pylons, each with an electric lantern. There are terracotta tile benches, a terracotta drinking fountain and a main ornamental fountain with water spout. I have fond memories from my childhood at this very site. I hope you and your family enjoy the restored Lincoln Park Gateway and create your own memories too.
