Lincoln Park offers very scenic views and a nice way to relax. The walking trails are very easily navigated and it is a very safe area. We walked until well after dark and did not ever feel uncomfortable.

My brother and I jogged here from our hostel last year. When we got there we found some space to do a bit of boxing and running. There was plenty of area to keep to ourselves and not have to bother anyone. We then went further along some tracks and boardwalks and right up to the entrance of the zoo.... More

We walked the length of Lincoln park all the way to downtown. Great day along lake Michigan. You can rent bikes from citibike kiosks and ride the bike trail. Excellent outdoor activity with beaches, art, green space and incredible skyline views.

When exiting the Zoo we saw a boardwalk and decided to walk it. Got a little lost but it was a pleasant walk. It was very clean and had a few historical statues. Spent half a day at the Zoo and the other half relaxing in this pretty park.

Nice and quiet outdoor park for walking, running or riding bicycle. It has many roads that will take you through different landscapes of big and leafy trees, next to the Diversey lagoon or next to the Michigan Lake. Within the park is the Lincoln Park Zoo and there are many sport fields for to play baseball and golf. It has... More

I live close to Chicago, but never really explored Lincoln Park. We took a bike tour with Giants in the Park, and this was a great way to learn about the amazing statues and bike through the whole park from South to North. It is so easy to take these statues for granted, but they represent many historical events and... More

Long story short, we meant to go to the Loyola train station but found ourselves walking way down to Lincoln Park. But we were impressed with the size, cleanliness, and variety of things to do. I loved the mosiacs on the underpass entryways.

You can't beat Lincoln Park for a family outing - a FREE family outing. The Park itself it beautiful with a lot of places for a family picnic. Watch (or play) a game on one of many fields in the Park. Go to the Farm at the Zoo or the Zoo (both free attractions) and visit the Conservatory to see... More

Definitely a beautiful park to walk around and get lost in! I highly recommend adding it as a stop during any Chicago visit.
