Many things to do here with the zoo being the highlight. Amazing views of the city and plenty of paths to run or walk.

The foresight of the Chicago forefathers to set aside green space was incredible. Even in the cold weather of Chicago, people were still walking, jogging, and eating in the park.

Being born in Chicago, I have been visiting Lincoln Park for over 50 years. A beautiful park that has Lake Michigan for a background. A must is the Zoo, paddleboats and so much more to see and do.

I've only been to Lincoln Park a few times. My uncle that lives in Chicago goes here daily and just hangs around.

Quintessential Chicago park, we like the Great Ape House at the Lincoln Park Zoo in spite of all the controversy, they can't return their population to the wild and the conservation efforts are the best anywhere.....

Park and enjoyed the scenery. I felt safe and it was really pretty. I also took a walk to the zoo nearby and enjoyed that as well. The entire area is really nice.

We visited in winter and got to experience a winter wonderland with the trees all covered in snow and some in decorations. There were plenty of runners out exercising and it's a lovely walk - we went through it en-route to the zoo

Went here while I had free time alone in the area....showed the outdoorsy side of the city! People running, bike-riding, and swimming at the beach that overlooks the city. What makes Chicago so cool to me is how well-rounded it is, and this is a perfect example.
