Chicago actually has one park that runs the length of the city. It is broken into different parts and has different names, but Burnham planned on having a park along the lakefront.

Stay, live or drive through Lincoln Park and admire the gorgeous brownstone homes. The parks are lively and safe. De Paul students keep the shopping areas hopping and youthful. Food in the area is good without the pretension. Drive around. Turn the next corner. Get a bit lost. You'll find your way out since the streets are nearly on a... More

Lincoln Park Zoo is the highlight - it's a brilliant little zoo and free! A must see for families. Lincoln Park Conservatory is next to the zoo, and also free. There's lots of space in the park for children to run around. There's ample parking, though we walked, from Michigan Avenue, then along the beach - it's quite a long... More

We visited at the end of July and attended a street fair. There were lots of bands and typical fair food with several beer trucks and a craft fair. Nice way to spend a Sunday evening. The neighborhood is nice and trendy.

This park is very large & may take all day. It has a Farmers Market on Wed. & Sat. AM In the summer. The animals are a must see for all. You can walk east over to Lake Michigan beach.

More well planned green space near the free zoo! Also, surrounded by some great little neighborhood restaurants, churches and homes.

Lovely city park.. Stroll thru the zoo and visit the conservatory. We were impressed with the cleanliness and the fact that it's free makes it perfect for an enjoyable afternoon.
