What's not to love?  It's a free zoo in the middle of Lincoln Park.  And for a free park, it's pretty damn nice. Want to go for a walk through the park, why not take in a zoo while you're at it?  The grounds are well kept, the venue is beautiful, and there are lots of animals to look at.  It's a great way to kill a couple hours, be it with parents visiting from out of town, or with friends who have kids. We recently took in the zoo lights exhibit that goes up at Christmas time.  It was crowded and most of the animals were hiding indoors, but it was still a lot of fun to walk around look at the impressive lights display.   Once again, it's an excellent way to kill a couple of hours if you're looking for fresh...

Like any sane person, I am powerless to resist the pure awesomeness of a light show synchronized to Christmas music. Going to the Lincoln Park Zoo for the first time in nearly seven years, I felt like I was transported back in time. I was probably more excited to see the monkeys than most of the kids! We were practically running from place to place just to ensure that we saw everything before the zoo closed. In this economy, people are trying to save where they can. Unfortunately, but understandably so, people have been cutting back on the elaborate Christmas decorations the last few years. The LPZ truly does a wonderful job turning the zoo into a magical place this time of year, allowing me to get in my Chr...

A great place for a family outing! This zoo is free too, so the price is right! Don't miss the tigers and lions as well as the primate enclosure, where ...

One extra star for LPZ's awesome wheelchair accessible parking. We recently revisited LPZ and had a wonderful time. Taking four small children anywhere can be a little, well, Olympic in nature, but this zoo made the experience as easy as possible. Handicapped parking near the entrance? Check. Accessible walkways/paths in which we could travel with a wheelchair, a double stroller, and one walking child with ease? Check. A sleeping bear SO close to the glass that the kids were separated from him (her?) by mere inches? Check Yeah, they're still talking about that bear, let me tell you.   In short, for the low price of $17.00, we were able to spend several hours on a gorgeous fall day, taking in the animals and ...

Even though this zoo doesn't charge admission, I would still say it was one of the best zoos in the US. It was clean, it was beautiful, and it was family friendly. I just love how they let you see all the typical animal species without charging an arm or a leg or getting you to pay extra for "special" attractions....

As many others before me, I found this zoo was a great place to wile away my time in Chicago.  We had but a short time in the city, but I really wanted to see what the zoo was like. We stayed in the north tip of downtown chicago (bellevue&rush) and the park was within a 15 minute walk.   I love how the zoo is conveniently accessible from multiple points in the park and there are plenty of maps and signs to stay oriented.  There are actually quite a lot of animal exhibits (being a free zoo, I had very low expectations) and I must admit that I was beyond impressed with the selection.   There was even a very pleasant surprise as I got to witness a vulture tear into its meal (mouse) with gusto!  The zoo overall ...
