We strolled through the zoo on a September weekday right after lunch. This place was almost deserted. The zoo is old but they’re trying. Not a world class destination but a neat place to walk around.

That is my favorite zoo, nice and cozy. Its great place to hang out with family and the location is pretty good. After the zoo you can always visit downtown or Lincoln park restaurants to relax after the walk.

I generally don't like zoos. I don't go to them. But this one is unique. And not beacuse it is free of charge (the only zoo I know free of charge) . but because it is located in amazing Lincoln Park nearby the Michigan Lake .

We loved our visit to the zoo. The exhibits are nice and the animals were mostly out for viewing. I especially liked the polar bear exhibit. The lion exhibit is currently under construction, but otherwise a nice outing for the family.

Nice visit, we saw a good selection of animals even tho it was cold. Love that it's free admission. We took lyft, because it was about a mile from the train and we had walked a lot that day already.
