Pierce Park is an open space complex located in the center of Lincoln, with 30 acres of lawns, forests, and two ponds. The park is a popular spot for picnics and the house and grounds are frequently used for weddings and other celebrations. In 1907, John Pierce bequeathed his farm and house to the Town of Lincoln, and the Town officially acquired the estate in 1964.

Donaldson and Chapin fields are part of the Lincoln Fields project, a collaborative effort spearheaded by LLCT, RLF, and the Lincoln Conservation Commission.

Pierce Park is made up of Pierce Hill, Smith-Andover Field, Town Offices, Donaldson Field, and Chapin Field.
