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!
