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.

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.

Walking and running trails, ponds, zoo, conservatory. What more could you ask for? Cheaper parking... There are free parking spots on Stockton, but they fill early.
