Q-TIPS SAY: YES, GO AND ENJOY! IT IS FREE! – FREE IS GOOD.
LINCOLN PARK ZOO is a wonderful place to visit – old and young alike & along the wonderful lakefront. Went early on a the day after Memorial Day and actually found free parking. There are a parking lots ($15.00) just in case you can’t find free street parking. Many animals to see and they were active due to the sunny cool weather. Lincoln Park Zoo offers free face painting for children, and a little people train, and carousel ride. Restaurants and sidewalk vendors are available as well as areas to picnic either under shelter or on the grassy areas. They have a small working farm which is great for the kids.The day we went, was a very pleasant day and most of the animals were very active, which adds to your enjoyment.
Mrs. Q says: It must have been a very long cold winter because many of the exhibits had babies to show off. The Zoo was busy with a lot of families enjoying this Free Zoo. Go and enjoy, it may not be the largest Zoo due to lack of some animals but a great way to spend the day. I miss the Elephants.
PS Lincon Park Zoo has a great Ape House. So go and enjoy – say HI your distant relatives!
