A Local's Perspective: Lincoln Park Zoo

Lincoln Park Zoo

We love the Lincoln Park Zoo. It's educational, it's fun's free! Founded in 1868, it's one of the oldest zoos in the U.S., a 35-acre space located in the heart of a charming city park. As a Chicago mom with two kids, ages 3 and 12, I can't even tell you how many times I've visited our beloved zoo. Some months we even average two visits per week! Here is our family-tested guide to the best of Lincoln Park Zoo.
