Lonsdale Park is one of three nearby properties that make up Lincolns Tri-Park Trail System also known as the Lincoln Greenway. There are trails through this property that lead to Chase Farm and Gateway Park using a blazing system of red squares (to Gateway Park), yellow triangles (to Chase Farm), and green circles (back to Lonsdale Park). The park itself sits behind the Lonsdale Elementary School and features little league fields and playgrounds. A pond separates the park and wooded area that features the trails. Start from the parking lot on the side of the school and follow the paved path to the left of the baseball field. Soon you will see the actual trailhead. For this hike, I first followed the yellow blazes to Chase Farm. I then followed the red blazes until I reached Bernon Drive. From here I retraced my steps a bit and then followed the green blazes back to Lonsdale Park. The property has some rather significant hills, stone walls, footbridges, and streams. A hike of longer distance can be achieved by utilizing all three properties.
