Lincoln Park was famous for its clam cakes and chowder. Before the price of clams went sky high, clambakes were quite a hit at the Picnic Pavillion. Lincoln Park also had the amusement park favorites such as cotton candy, french fries and salt water taffy.  You could bring your own food and picnic or you could buy food at any of the concessions stands around the park.

There were games and prizes to be won at any number of the booths around the park.

Lincoln Park was New England's Wonderland of Fun!
