Lincoln Park

Located in the north-side Chicago neighborhood which shares its name, Lincoln Park houses one of the oldest zoos in the United States — and one of the few that offers free admission!

The park also contains outdoor theaters, urban sanctuaries and both the Lincoln Park Conservatory and the Chicago History Museum. Saunter along the Alfred Caldwell Lily Pool or walk until you reach Lake Michigan at North Avenue Beach on the park’s west end.

Looking for a little more exercise? Add a ride along the nearby Lakefront Trail North to your outing!
