Main Entrance

Harrison Ave & Pierce Ave, Wheaton, IL Ÿ Map

From County Farm Rd: turn east on Harrison Ave and proceed one mile to the parking lot.

From Jewell Rd: turn south on Electric Ave where the Illinois Prairie Path crosses Jewell Rd. Proceed on Electric Ave to Pierce Ave and turn right; the parking lot will be on the left.

Entering “Lincoln Marsh” into most navigation systems will bring you to the wrong location; however, if you are using Google Maps you can enter the exact phrase “Lincoln Marsh Park Entrance.”

Parking space is limited; we highly suggest carpooling when possible.

Our parking lot can be a high traffic area with patrons and cars so please drive cautiously.

Buses MUST park outside the parking lot; there is not enough space to turn around. Riders must be dropped off at the parking lot entrance.

East Entrance

 1000 W Lincoln Ave, Wheaton, IL Ÿ Map

From Gary Ave/Ellis Ave/West St/Main St (Wheaton): turn west on Lincoln Ave and proceed until the road ends.

Entering “Lincoln Marsh” into navigation systems may bring you to the wrong location.

There is no parking lot at the east entrance. You may use the last row of parking spaces (closest to Lincoln Ave) in the Church of the Resurrection’s parking lot Monday-Saturday. Please do not park in the church lot on Sundays. We highly suggest carpooling when possible.
