Had a lovely wander around Lincoln park on a vey snowy day. The park is huge, set on the water edge of Lake Michigan. The park has several attractions including the zoo, which we didn't visit. If walking, you need to be aware of the cyclists who use the park and sometime have little care for the pedestrians!

A great park. One of the anchors to these classic neighborhoods. Lots of historical event happens in this park. Go to the Historical Society Museum and the free Lincoln Park Zoo.

It's a giant free park- what's not to like? It's located right next to the lake, and has tons of open green space, sports fields, and a free zoo. There are a lot of people with their dogs. Good way to kill a couple of hours.

Big statues of Lincoln and Grant plus lots of other art pieces. A free zoo at one end. Only drawback a busy road between the park and the lake.

Another great, free lakeside open space in Chicago. It is worth taking the walk from the Conservatory (after visiting it!) at the top end of the park, through the free zoo and down to the boardwalk lake, and on to North Beach on Lake Michigan. The sense of open space in harmony with the iconic Chicago skyline is very powerful,... More

Downtown Chicago has a number of parks located along lake Michigan, but I think Lincoln Park was my favorite. The park itself has some wider open grass areas if needed, and plenty of walking paths through trees and some type of nature preserve and also the Adler Lily Pond. There are also two great free attractions here, the Lincoln Park... More

Took a leisurely stroll around the park. Surrounded by the lake on one side and the skyscrapers on the other. Fun to people watch. Felt totally safe here but it was during the day. Don't know about after dark.
