Close to downtown Chicago so easy to walk to and get a little relief from all the hustle and bustle. Great walking paths and greenhouse, zoo and nature center to wander through if you want. On Saturday and Wednesday's in summer and into October there is a farmers market in the park which is one of the best in the... More

Fantastic park that seems to stretch for miles. A Nature trail, Zoo, Conservatory and perfectly situated between Lake Michigan and that wonderful architecture of the Gold Cost. Has some superb flower beds too! A must visit on any trip to Chicago and rightly, well used by locals.

Definitely worth a visit. This is a stunning park, well maintained and clean. It has beautiful nature walks around a lovely lake which ultimately leads you to the free zoo and conservatory. A great view towards the city in the south. Well worth a visit

Lincoln Park has superb views of the city of Chicago and plenty of charm of its own. Plus, there is a free park zoo. Great day out for all the family!

The zoo is relatively small, but free, and the ape exhibit, particularly the gorillas, is one of the best I've seen anywhere. The gorillas were quite active and interactive with each other the whole time we were there (in the morning). The conservatory just north of the zoo was also very nice, and since they're both free, you can walk... More

Had a wonderful day with my granddaughter at the Shedd Aquarium. Though I don't like seeing animals of any type in unnatural habitats, I appreciate the research and rescue in which the Shedd is involved. Seeing the Beluga was a real treat as were the sea horses and spotted rays. A great day for children and adults alike.

Lincolm Park is lovely. Very gentrified and felt quite safe. Close to Steppenwolf Theatre, Blues clubs, parks and great restaurants...it's a delightful area to live in for a few days . You can get downtown in 6 subway stops very easily. Greatt walking around hood.

There is something for everyone in Lincoln Park: many sports fields, ponds, the Lincoln Park Zoo, walking/running trails, Farmer's Market on Wednesdays and Saturdays, art sculptures and historical statues (that talk!), fountains - a great place for families.

Come here to visit the Conservatory and/or the zoo which are both free, but take the time to walk through the rest of the park as well. It has great open spaces, and the ponds make it so tranquil. There's also a farm, fountain, statues of many historical figures, and plenty of spots to sit, relax, and admire the views... More

I have been many times to Chicago but it was my first time at the Lincoln Park, I was surprised by its gardens, really worth the visit and take a long walk.
