See roaring lions, playful meerkats and majestic gorillas just minutes from downtown Chicago. Lincoln Park Zoo is free, open and amazing every day of the year.

Visitors can go nose-to-nose with gorillas and chimpanzees, howl with red wolves, peer into a black bear den and immerse themselves in the sights and sounds of Africa with wild dogs, pygmy hippos and black rhinos. Beyond providing a wild home to hundreds of species, Lincoln Park Zoo also operates one of the largest zoo-based conservation and science programs in the country.

Chicago’s free zoo is located just minutes from downtown Chicago at Lake Shore Drive and Fullerton Parkway. Paid parking is available on Cannon Drive. CTA buses 151 and 156 service the zoo, which is open every day from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. For more info, visit www.lpzoo.org.
