“Gorgeous Lakeshore Park”
Reviewed November 3, 2013

Situated on the shores of Lake Michigan this beautiful Park offers loads of things to do including a visit to the Zoo or the Nature Museum or the Conservatory. Great place to walk, jog or cycle or simply chill and take in the views over the Lake or of downtown Chicago to the south.

“Lots to do”
Reviewed October 27, 2013

Lincoln Park is really nice - there's a conservatory, nature museum, lily pond, lakes, and more. While I did not go in the nature museum, there is a nice nature trail going around the museum that shows different habitats. There is also a nice trail around the North Pond next to the museum. And be sure to stop in the Conservatory (it's free!) and walk around the lily pond next to it.

“Excellent Chicago Attraction”
Reviewed October 15, 2013

I thoroughly enjoyed this neighborhood and the park. The lake and city views were impressive. Unfortunately, was unable to complete the tour of the zoo. Will have to finish that on the next trip.

“The "other" Chicago park”
Reviewed October 14, 2013

Everyone thinks of millenium park when they think of Chicago parks..and rightly so, with the bean, being downtown, etc. But if you enjoy parks, Lincoln is NOT to be missed. It is on the north side but bigger than millenium, is on the river front (follows lake shore drive) and is a great size for walking, jogging, etc. The zoo inside it is free and worthwhile (although I have to make a different review just for the zoo since it is technically its own attraction...it should be mentioned here as well). A nice way to get a little break from the city. This park is closer to NYC's central park style.
