Lincoln Park is located in the north of downtown Chicago, on Lake Michigan. It covers a very large area. The park consists of vast green grasslands, stretching beaches, natural reserves, vast seaports and various recreational facilities. Lincoln Park is best known for its zoo and its flower house.
On the way from St. Louis to Chicago, I passed Lincoln's hometown and found the park's nameplate hanging by the roadside, so I diverted into it. What a quiet place to go. There is a tourist information point. From some video materials, we can see that it was a barren place. In memory of the greatest president of the United States, people in Lincoln's hometown turned it into a place with a good ecological environment for people to spend their holidays and leisure. There are many wooden benches on the backs of the park, engraved with a famous saying, very cultural.
Lincoln Park is located in the north of downtown Chicago. It is the largest public park in Chicago, with a large area and lush trees. There are courts, beaches, Lincoln Park Zoo, Lincoln Park Conservatory and Chicago History Museum. Lincoln Park and New York Central Park are both large urban parks. Compared with New York Central Park, Chicago Lincoln Park has a lakeside feature, and Lincoln Park Zoo is much larger than New York Central Park Zoo. In Lincoln Park, the high-rise buildings in Lupu District in the South and Lake Michigan in the East are the backgrounds of visitors'photographs. It's west of the old city of Chicago. If you have time to walk around, you can enjoy the scenery of Chicago a hundred years ago. The Chicago Water Show is held every year on the third weekend of August (Saturdays and Sundays). The lakeside near Lincoln Park is the best place to watch. The subway station is far away. The brown line and the purple line of the subway get off at Armitage and walk eastward for about a mile (about 1.6 kilometers). There is a bus stop nearby.
It's worth visiting here. I came to Lincoln Park, which is the National Forest Park of the United States, beside Lincoln National Zoo, where I saw gorillas, saw the world of flowers, and saw stars playing. It's so spectacular. And the lake is very clear, shaded by green grass. It's a fascinating place and worth visiting.
The spring here should be beautiful, and the beach by the lake should be a good place for leisure. Driving for 15 minutes, along Lake Shore, enjoying the lake light while experiencing the pleasure of galloping, Lincoln Park arrives at its destination, which is full of spring, green grassland, rippling Lake water, water birds swimming on the water, all telling us that spring is coming.
After visiting Chinatown, get off at Wellington Station with the same ticket and walk through Lincoln Park. Lincoln Park was a city cemetery in 1843. In 1864, the City Council decided to turn the 0.49 square kilometre cemetery into a park. Facing Lake Michigan, the park now covers an area of 1208 acres, named after the famous President of the United States, Lincoln.
Free parks, near the lake in the city centre, can be turned around. Some famous scenic spots and museums are in this big park, very quiet. When we go, we are still building, adding children's entertainment facilities, and facilities for people to rest. In short, the perfect combination of humanistic flavor and natural scenery. It's very beautiful to go in spring and summer. It's very relaxing to go jogging and walking along parks and lakes. White flowers blossom on trees in spring. It's very beautiful! While walking a little, I saw the scenic spots, put on a pair of comfortable shoes, and walked for a day without feeling tired.
Lincoln Park is great for a few reasons. But for me personally, I like it because it's in a beautiful neighborhood and it's FREE. Ok, so parking isn't always free. But the zoo within the park is, and the gardens, bike paths, playgrounds, etc, are. A farmer's market is held every Saturday, 8-12. Stroll along the pond and see the ducks, or have a picnic on the lush grass. The Lincoln Park Conservetory is also located here (free!) and Peggy Notebart Nature Museum (small admission fee) with its cool butterfly garden. The Chicago History Museum is at the southern end of Lincoln Park, at North Ave. and Clark St. Lovely little shops and restaurants are within easy walking distance, and many festivals are held in the park during the summer.
