This place is gorgeous and FREE - you can't go wrong with that at all. It's right outside the Lincoln Park Zoo so be sure to walk right on in before or after!

Very well-kept, with many varieties and types of plants. If you are visiting Lincoln Park to see the zoo, I recommend walking through the also free Lincoln Park Conservatory to see the many different types of beautiful plants that are well kept here. The Conservatory is located next to the Zoo, within Lincoln Park.

There is a separate area with ferns and other tropical plants. The area is kept at constant temperature which is pleasant to walk in. There are also Koi carp and several birds.... More

Unfortunately two of the buildings are closed due to the remodeling and repair in the aftermath of a severe hail storm. It is not a huge place, but offers a nice quiet break from the urban hustle. It is easy to reach on the Green Line. I am sure it would be nice to visit on a cold and snowy... More
