No review can describe all the sights and activities going on in Lincoln Park. It's a place with a lot going on. Men and women cycling or running, people of all ages walking or sitting on the grass, kids playing, families with pets, the list goes on. Summer is the best time to visit the park!

Lincoln Zoo is a great place to take kids. There is no admission fees to get in. The zoo is clean and the animals are well taken care of. The park is awesome too!

What a marvel of a park! Beautiful scenery, walking trails, zoo, water, fresh market, restaurant, you name it! I wish we had more and more of these areas in the States. BTW, it's all free! No excuses for anyone to have a stroll at the park and be re-encountered with nature
