The Lincoln Park neighborhood's business district along West Superior Street

Lincoln Park is one of the larger neighborhoods (in terms of area) in the city of Duluth, Minnesota, United States.

Lincoln Park is situated between Garfield Avenue to the ore docks at Carlton Street / 34th Avenue West. The neighborhood stretches up the hill to Skyline Parkway.

Lincoln Park also refers to a large park within the neighborhood.

The main routes in the community are U.S. 53 / Piedmont Avenue; 24th Avenue West; and Michigan, Superior, First, and Third Streets.

Third Street had a road construction makeover in 2006; and U.S. 53 / Piedmont Avenue had a road construction makeover in 2004. Both of these completed road projects have enhanced the neighborhood.

Miller Creek and Coffee Creek both flow through the neighborhood. Goat Hill and Rice's Point are both located within the Lincoln Park neighborhood. Garfield Avenue runs through the middle of Rice's Point. The Duluth Harbor Basin is located along the eastern side of Rice's Point. The Saint Louis Bay is located along the western side of Rice's Point and also below the John Blatnik Bridge (I-535).

At the time of the 2000 census, Lincoln Park had a population of 6,504, representing an 8.9% decline from the 1990 census (the largest decrease in any of Duluth's neighborhood districts) with a total area of 1,954 acres (7.91 km2), or 5% of Duluth's total land space. A portion of that land is devoted to industrial and commercial uses.

The neighborhood was known as the West End until 1996 when it was officially renamed to the Lincoln Park neighborhood.[1]
