I rented a Divvy bike and rode all around the park (watch out for strollers!) for a long time. It sits right next to great neighborhoods and on the other side is the lake. The scenery is beautiful and I can't wait to go back again! I love the statues and the zoo along the way.

This park is huge, and comprises the zoo as well which is definetely not worth your time, especially because the animals are not properly safeguarded in decent, clean and spacious enough areas. But the park is fine and if you are lucky there is a sunday fair going on which allows you to buy fruits and pies and other great... More

Lincoln Park is a spectacular urban park (one of the best in the entire country). Take a break from your downtown Chicago experience, and venture up--just a little ways--up here, and it's just great. There is a terrific urban zoo, no charge! And very cool beach-side lake/park opportunities. What we would most recommend is for you to--gasp, rent a bike...... More

An expansive park in a great neighborhood, not far from downtown, along the Lake Michigan shoreline and you don't have to spend a dime! The zoo, conservatories, gardens, fountains, sculptures, trails and green expanse are all free to enjoy with only the Nature Museum charging a fee. You can easily spend an entire day wandering and venture over to nearby... More

Situated on the shores of Lake Michigan this beautiful Park offers loads of things to do including a visit to the Zoo or the Nature Museum or the Conservatory. Great place to walk, jog or cycle or simply chill and take in the views over the Lake or of downtown Chicago to the south.

Lincoln Park is really nice - there's a conservatory, nature museum, lily pond, lakes, and more. While I did not go in the nature museum, there is a nice nature trail going around the museum that shows different habitats. There is also a nice trail around the North Pond next to the museum. And be sure to stop in the... More

I thoroughly enjoyed this neighborhood and the park. The lake and city views were impressive. Unfortunately, was unable to complete the tour of the zoo. Will have to finish that on the next trip.

Everyone thinks of millenium park when they think of Chicago parks..and rightly so, with the bean, being downtown, etc. But if you enjoy parks, Lincoln is NOT to be missed. It is on the north side but bigger than millenium, is on the river front (follows lake shore drive) and is a great size for walking, jogging, etc. The zoo... More
