Cute zoo for the kids even a fish hachery. It's just big enough not to tire the kids too much. Prairie dogs don't come out till almost clising.

The Lincoln Park Zoo is a great afternoon if you have younger children. They have a few animals, a play area for children, and it's free.

I knew that this would be a smaller zoo I just expected a bit more. Many (I mean most) of the animal cages were empty. There were a few cool animals to see- wolf, bear and 2 cougars but other than that there wasn't anything much too exciting. My kids would get disappointed as the ran to the next cage... More

This is a tiny little zoo, but very well maintained, and the animals look well cared for. It only took us about 30 minutes to walk around, so it made for a nice stop.

Not very many animals to see. Felt extremely sorry for the wolf as he was pacing on his circle path and did not look happy, but extremely stressed. His enclosure is way too small. Restaurant and the big building were not open. Read some other reviews about all the animals others saw, but we only saw 3 animals and some... More

This is a smaller zoo however it is quite nice and free (suggested donation $2 adult, $1 child). We defiantly enjoyed our visit and would recommend.

Too hot for the animals apparently the day we visited as most were all in their shelters. Walkways well maintained. Just the right size for younger children. We went out West this summer to numerous national parks - saw no bison! But saw two @ Lincoln Park Zoo. Kids were amazed by prarie dogs, wolf,& eagle!

My family visited the zoo July 4, 2015. What a nice place! It was very well kept and clean. The children were excited when they discovered that it even had a playground. I enjoyed reading the fact plaques that were near the animals' enclosure aloud to my family. Definitely will go back if we are in the area again.

The wolf was scared and has paced so much the grass is gone and the ground is hard. I felt sorry for some of the animals. The zoo was clean. The bison enclosure needs repair, can tell they are scratching on the fence. All the bulk is hard on the fences.
