Even when the Lincoln Park Zoo is closed due to the Coronavirus, a visit to Lincoln Park is highly recommended, whether you are an out-of-towner or someone whose home overlooks the park. Lincoln Park, located at 2045 North Lincoln Park West in Chicago, overlooking Lake Shore Drive and Lake Michigan, is the second most visited park in the United States, next to New York's Central Park. The park runs from north to south through five Chicago neighborhoods--Edgewater, Lake View, Uptown, Lincoln Park and Near North. Named after Abraham Lincoln, it was created as a city cemetery in 1843 and converted to a public park in 1860. Chicago's largest park, it covers 1,208 acres, or seven miles along the lakefront, and attracts 20 million visitors a year. Its most popular attractions are the Chicago History Museum, Lincoln Park Zoo, Lincoln Park Conservatory, Peggy Notebaert Nature Museum, North Pond Sanctuary and Alfred Caldwell Lily Pond. It also features a golf course, driving range, seven beaches, bird sanctuaries, nature reserves, harbors, playgrounds, recreational areas, parkland, running and cycling paths and one of the city's finest restaurants, North Pond. North Avenue, Oak Street and Montrose are three of the most popular and scenic beaches. Don't forget the public art on display--the Abraham Lincoln Monument, U.S. Grant Monument, Alexander Hamilton statue, Hans Christian Anderson statue, Ben Franklin statue and William Shakespeare statue. On weekends, my wife and I always take a leisurely and extensive walk through the park and the zoo, around the lagoon and along the lakefront, sometimes from Fullerton Avenue to Oak Street, part of the 18-mile Lakefront Trail, featuring one of the most scenic views you'll ever experience. The park was listed on the National Register of Historic Places in 1994.

I live in Lincoln Park. I moved here three years ago because the schools here are just great. It is the biggest green area in Chicago. The green areas include a pond full of geese who come here in their migration. Tons of turtles and butterflies. Home to the Nature Museum and LP Zoo (which is free). It is also an area that has great access to the Lake - just a few blocks and you are on the lake - in a part not so full like downtown. You have direct buses to downtown - in 10 minutes you are there (and that includes two different bus routes - 151 Lake shore and 33/22 Via Clark Street. So you can get here easily. There is also a rowing house and marinas. The area is paradise!! The Conservatory is also here and free - home of many flowers and plants.

So many things are located in here (not mentioning great location by the Michigan Lake and a little bit north of the Chicago downtown). There is a free Conservatory and free Zoo in here. And a lot of interesting monuments and statues.

Lincoln Park is both a neighborhood in Chicago and a real park. The park houses a wonderful nature walk surrounding a lagoon, the fantastic Cafe Brauer, the only free zoo left in the US, and much open public space that is used by visitors for everything from sports to bar-b-ques and more, A great place to visit. Be sure to stop on the bridge going over the lagoon. The view of Downtown Chicago is great from here, and many movies are shot here.

It is cold out there but the lights, ice sculptures and friendly people make the walk around the grounds so much fun. It was definitely worth the time to go. Can’t beat the free price either! I was visiting with friends and we called this the highlight of our trip.
