“A free, family-oriented wildlife experience”
Lincoln Park Zoo - Lincoln Park Zoo is dedicated to connecting people with nature by providing a free, family-oriented wildlife experience in the heart of Chicago and by advancing the highest quality of animal care, education, science and conservation.
Founded in 1868, the zoo is rich with architectural treasures, gardens and award-winning animal habitats. A conservation haven nestled in the heart of Chicago, the zoo operates one of the country’s largest zoo-based conservation and science programs and education programs. Zoo scientists combine expertise in a range of disciplines to identify threats to zoo and wild populations and develop strategies to ensure their continued existence.
Lincoln Park Zoo is located in Chicago’s historic Lincoln Park neighborhood and attracts 3.5 million visitors per year and is one of America’s last free admission zoos.
Love the zoo, love Anana, but the habitats are too small for most. Love seeing the construction going on to fix this issue.
It's a pretty cool zoo, and it's free! It's in the middle of the park so it's a little startling to be walking around the trails and then before you know it you're inside looking at a tiger.
This is a great zoo, and I still can't believe that there's free admission. If we're on a long road trip, this is often the one stop we make while in Chicago. Lots of park benches to stop and look at the beautiful scenery too.
It's alright, there are some cool animals but the zoo is fairly small and the animals have very little space to roam (I realize this is an issue with pretty much every zoo in the world...but the size of the animal's dwellings particularly struck me at the Lincoln Park Zoo).
For a free zoo this place is awesome! My favourite spot was the polar bear exhibit at the far end of the zoo! It just swims around and plays with a big ball! You need to time it right (12:30 -2) and she will be very active!
This zoo was pretty cool. It's free, but it'll cost you $20 to park. So, that's how they get ya. But, honestly, parking in Chicago is horrific anyhow.
Went here in early August with my 9-month-old baby. He actually really enjoyed it. I strapped him into a bjorn and walked around. I would not recommend this. It would have been way better to have taken him in the stroller because the zoo is huge.
