Since March, Lincoln City Parks and Recreation (LCP&R) has focused on going virtual to support community via continued recreation, education, and activities for wellness of mind and body for all ages. And they’re still going strong! On a daily basis, LCP&R offers a variety of virtual fitness classes, dance parties, story time, cooking classes, meditations, trail hikes, camp activities, interactive FB posts and contests and special events like Arbor Day and Mascot Parade – all free for the public.
LCP&R is excited to announce their newest fitness classes: working out in the parking lot, social distanced with an instructor. The free weekly classes will be held on Monday/Wednesday/Friday at 11 a.m. in the Community Center parking lot. The parking lot will serve as a fitness classroom with parking spaces marked off for safety. No registration is required but classes are open to the first 20 – just show up! Per the governor’s orders, LCP&R asks attendees to follow safety guidelines and wear a mask. Parking is open on the east side of the lot.
For continued updates on all of LCP&R activities and re-opening phases, please follow the Lincoln City Parks and Recreation FB page, visit https://www.lincolncity.org/parksandrec, or call 541.994.2131.

Due to the success of Lincoln City’s economic aid package, the City Council approved an additional $200,000 to be added to the funds available for lodging businesses.
Just about one month ago the Lincoln City City Council allocated $635,000 for an economic aid package. $400,000 was allocated for non-lodging businesses and $235,000 was allocated for lodging businesses. Under this program, Explore Lincoln City will purchase goods and services from businesses that are redeemable in the future. These redeemable goods and services will be used in Explore Lincoln City’s future, direct marketing campaigns. To date, we’ve been able to assist about 150 businesses.
Unfortunately there were far more applications than available funds. The extra $200,000 approved by the City Council will go to the lodging businesses. The City won’t take additional applications, but will use the applications we’ve already received.
Although we recognize the needs outweighs the City’s ability to provide direct financial assistance and these additional funds won’t cover all of the applications we’ve received, we’re grateful the City is in a financial position to allocate $835,000 to aid our businesses.
Good Luck and Be Safe
