The Lincoln Park Zoo is a unique experience, where else can you find polar bears in the middle of downtown? The Zoo is free and offers the unique experience of being in the middle of a major metropolitan area while viewing wildlife and natural beauty....More
This smallish zoo is a wonderful way to spend a day with the kids, a date or a group of friends. Plus it's free! There are no entry or attraction fees. Known for it's successful ape breeding center, koala bears and beautiful barless enclosures. It...More
. . . but a stuffy crowd of people, if you have ever had the dull, dull opportunity of walking among them. This is best enjoyed rapt in the arms of a longtime love . . . because the walk along the pond is rather...More
I might be writing a biased review as the day we visited the zoo it was about 97 degrees outside. We only stayed a little while, but we ate lunch at the bar/restaurant place near the entrance. The prices for food and drinks were akin...More
Something for nothing! The Lincoln Park zoo allows you to see up close and personal a few of the living beings we are destroying. Take your kids so that they can tell their children they once saw an animal that mankind made extinct.
Another beautiful park where people gather, walk their dogs, play soccer, and just get outside. Chicagoans really have some nice choices for how to get out and enjoy the sunshine and nature - this is one of them!
The entire facility is so fantastic! My Son and I walked to the Lake from the Deversey bus stop. At this point it was about a three block walk to the lake. All very safe for foot passage. We walked along the Lake front until...More

Yes, there is parking at La Salle and Stockton on the south side of the park and at the Lincoln Park Zoo with the entrance at Fullerton off Lake Shore Drive. Otherwise, if you're lucky and timely, you can find parking along Stockton in the park or on streets west of the zoo.

It is fairly easy to get from the Lincoln Park neighborhood to Soldier field. You can take the Red Line from the Fullerton Station or Armitage Station (depending on where you are in Lincoln Park) to the Roosevelt Station and then take the 146 Bus to Soldier Field or walk the remaining way. If you take the Red Line and the Bus it should take you approximately 40 minutes. If you walk the remaining way it will take you a bit longer. The fare is $2.25 for Red Line and $2.25 for the Bus. The cab fare would be approximately $23. Google Maps is great to use in Chicago for planning your route. It will show you routes based on car, public transportation or walking. There are also a lot of taxi fare estimators online (such as faxifarefinder) that you can use to estimate how much cab fare would be in Chicago. Hope that helps!
