Lincolnshire Parks & Recreation

Lincolnshire celebrates its heroes, enjoys its parks

One night a year, all of Lincolnshire is invited to come together to celebrate its heroes. But every day finds the village’s residents enjoying a variety of parks, trails, bike paths and athletic activities.

For several years, Lincolnshire had been joining in the nationwide National Night Out, a chance to get to know their police and their neighbors. But starting in 2019, “we decided to involve more than our police,” said Police Commander Kim Covelli. “We wanted to include all our community heroes – educators, medical personnel, community volunteers, public works employees and other village staff.”

This first “Heroes Night” was held on Aug. 23, 2019, in North Park. It included games, food, face-painting, water slides and K-9 demonstrations. In a village of 7,500 residents, it drew 3,000 people.

Lincolnshire boasts 11 parks and several trails. A volunteer group named the Lincolnshire Sports Association provides recreational and travel-league programs in soccer, baseball, basketball, kickball, field hockey and dance. The Lincolnshire Swim Club, which celebrated its 60th anniversary in 2019, organizes swimming programs. The Stevenson High School Patriot Recreation Education Program provides yet other recreation opportunities.
