During our visit to Chicago we walked almost the complete Lincoln Park, it has a very nice view both of Lake Michigan and the city skyline, and great for people watching, and taking nice pictures. It has access to the beach, marinas, bike rentals,... very nice "green escape" from the city

Chicago has great parks and this one is outstanding. Larger than you might expect and right on the lake makes it a "cool" place to visit in the summer. There are lots of bikes to rent if you would rather ride than walk. Parking is a challenge but just keep your eyes open and you will find a great, free,... More

The rain came fast and furious but look at the reward. A double rainbow just beautiful. This is what I love about Chicagos weather, always changing always cool. How often do you have an opportunity to see a double rainbow. Just gorgeous

Chicago has many lovely parks...but Lincoln is huge and positioned along the lake with a zoo in the middle of it...it's beautiful and a great place to spend a sunny day.

A very nice park near the zoo. Seemed very clean. No pets allowed though. Lots of shady areas too to stay cool.

Worth walking through. We enjoyed the park and the scenery. While we were not fans of the zoo, we really liked the park space.

A great location in which to stroll, jog, bike, or picnic. Even when sweltering in the city, one can usually find relief in the shade with a breeze off the water. The zoo is a nice change of pace, especially if one is with children.
