You would never guess you were minutes away from a big city! The zoo is nice and there is plenty of space to walk around and enjoy the views.

Concerts held in Lincoln Park are always a fun experience. It's a large area that fills up quick, but there is always room to move around. If you're fortunate to get tickets for Lollapalooza or Riotfest, you're in for a real treat!

This is a good part of town to visit, for the zoo of course, but also for restaurants and shops a little off the beaten track of the tourist area, where "real people live, work and play."

then by all means go to the zoo! Otherwise why travel there, really nothing else there. You can go to any park for grass and trees and yuppies.

Visiting in August, my friends and I were in awe of the beauty and abundant flora at the end of summer. We enjoyed the fountain, buttterflies and the fact that we could sit on a bench and take it all in.

A very nice zoo that is easily accessible by public transpiration and you can't beat free! We spent about half a day here exploring and looking at all of the animals. It's a small zoo but does have a variety of animals/birds/reptiles to see. Would...More

So close to the city, yet a respite from all that is city and encompassing all that is country. Beautiful, restful park

We stayed at the Hotel Lincoln across the street from the south end of the park and were amazed to find the prairie/marsh area in Lincoln Park. It was very well tended and I counted at least 15 different prairie plants as we walked around...More

I like this park because it is big. It is great for walking or biking. I would suggest renting a bicycle. I saw Divvy in many areas all around the park and the city.

Head to the North Side of Chicago for a stroll through
one of the city’s greenest neighborhoods. Lincoln Park
boasts over 1200 acres of green space complete with a
free zoo open to visitors year-round. This
pedestrian-friendly neighborhood is lined with parks,
row homes, boutiques, taverns, and nature. Lincoln
Park itself borders the lakefront area offering
peaceful views of the water and the Chicago skyline.
