Chicagoland has 2 great zoos and Lincoln Park is one of them. The zoo is in the heart of Lake View right off the lake and is lovely to visit anytime of the year. I love to go in the spring and fall. My grand-daughter always tells me it is her favorite place to go so we go alot.

Chicago's well loved zoo is still free. It is a great place to see Chicago's plethora of types of families speaking many different languages. At Christmas time, Zoo Lights is always a fun visit.

We had a nice time here. In a good neighborhood. Loved the different areas and the ease of walking through it all. Loved the Jean Gang Pavillion. Made for a nice break in the afternoon. Definitely worth the trip

A compact zoo, located in gorgeous Lincoln Park. Very "doable" size makes it ideal for young families in particular, who may get overwhelmed by Brookfield. Newer additions keep it interesting, old-style animal houses keep it classic.
