Walk forever as the views change

Runs along the lakefront with 100% pedestrian access throughout. You can detour into the free Lincoln Park Zoo, check out the gardens and numerous statues, etc.

Lincoln Park offers city-dwellers a chance to stroll around the picturesque pond all year long (even lovely to visit with geese and ducks on the ice). It offers a gateway to the (still free) Lincoln Park Zoo. Also it has baseball fields, soccer fields, picnic areas, and a pedestrian bridge to walk over top of Lakeshore Drive to get to... More

This is what New Yorkers wish Central Park could be! A beautiful, multifaceted space for all Chicagoans and travelers. Lake Michigan beaches, a zoo, a botanical garden, surrounding Brownstone neighborhoods, restaurants and... wait for it... awesome people watching.

Lincoln Park is a great place to visit! It has great history starting with it's origin as a cemetery in the early days of Chicago. It has developed over the years to have great bike paths, a farmer's market, sports areas, a harbor, a free architecturally beautiful zoo, a harbor, a free conservatory, the Alfred Caldwell Lily Pond, natural prairie...

Too rainy and cold to do anything but the indoor options - we chose the Conservatory. Parking available on the street nearby. Dog's in the "no dog" area of the park were friendly.

This was my second trip to Lincoln Park. Last time we tried the ice skate and this year the ZOO lights. We had booked a parking through spot hero and it was just 8 minute walk to the zoo light. The lights were a nice piece even after Christmas, the children and adults enjoying the lights that was been placed... More

Lincoln Park has so much to offer. From a conservatory, that is open year round, for those who love flowers, to the Lincoln Park Zoo which is one of the few (if not the only free zoo in the U.S.) , to a lagoon to practice your rowing to jogging and running trails. This is a great place, plus you... More

Lincoln Park is the go to place for residents and visitors alike. There is so much to do from sports, to a free zoo, to marinas, or just sit and enjoy the great people watching. Nestled between some of Chicago's iconic neighborhoods and Lake Michigan. It is another of my must see places.

The park is lovely especially during the warm months. One can go around the lagoon watching our resident geese and ducks. The many trees add rich colors during the autumn before losing their leaves. It's a privilege living nearby.
