The Lincoln Zoo is very large and clearly divided. There are mammals, primates, reptiles, and there are also African regions. There are also areas for children to play. Although there are not many animal species, there are quite a lot of knowledge points. Because of its large area, it does not look particularly crowded. Bus No. 151 arrives at the door, and there are many parking spaces. There are only two restaurants and snacks. Not enough.
My favorite Chicago zoo...and it's free so what's not to love.
The zoo is just over a one milefrom the Ginkgo Leaf Apartment A great walk of a quick cab ride. It is a totally free zoo and is currently in the process of opening some up graded exhibits. It is a wonderful laid back zoo with a large conservatory to warm you on a cool Chicago day! The zoo is a perfect destination located along the lake front in Lincoln Park. Also across the street from the zoo is RJ Grunts, local burger and salad bar restaurant since the 1960's. A true Chicago place to go for a great meal.
Great place, plus it's free. Can't get much better than that.Fun place to get kids involved.
