Lincoln Square Park
Where we've featured it
In 1935, the Wa Sung Community Service Club built and opened the Chinese Center in Lincoln Square Park as a Depression-era WPA project, and it’s since become an anchor for Chinatown. Before the pandemic, you’d see elders practicing tai chi, chess players crowding around tables, basketball pick-up games, and children in the playground climbing the iconic junk boat. For the past year, it’s sadly been a bit too quiet, but like Chinatown, we can expect this treasured space to bounce back quickly.
