    I realized having not written this review in almost two years, my review style has certainly grown up. Haha ... but that doesn't make it any less exciting that Lincoln Park Zoo is F R E E. Yeup, you heard right, it doesn't cost you a penny to visit this awesome zoo filled with interesting and cool exhibits and animals. It closes at 5 PM on most days but again ... it's free!There are lots of stores in Lincoln Park Zoo as well so you can buy those usual stuffed animals and other nifty souvenirs to go. There is an aquarium and you can see penguins and all the normal animals. Make no mistake, this is not just some zoo that they decided to put some animals at and no one takes care of it. Its very well maintained and rivals some of the best zoo's in the US. All this for free makes it a five-star attraction for me.

    Open 365 days a year, the Lincoln Park Zoo is just a few minutes from Chicago; you can actually hear the lion’s roar echo off nearby apartment buildings. And yet, if you want to feel like you’ve gotten away from city life, you can retreat to the re-created rainforests or savannas. Kids will enjoy the colorful Bird House and Bear Habitat, and you’ll pretend not to squirm when you visit the Lion House or get close to a boa in the Small Mammal-Reptile House.

    This is the zoo of my childhood. We'd beg our parents to take us there, then spend hours looking at the gorillas, elephants, and monkeys. My favorite was the lion house. Later as a teen I'd ride my bike there, and then, as an adult I'd go in winter just to see the ducks sliding around on the iced over ponds. A world-class zoo that also serves as a green space in the midst of the big city. Big plus, it's free and open every day.

    Rare free outing in Chicago. Zoo is just the right size so you can see most or all of it in an afternoon. Great for young children. And if you have more time, you can cross over lake shore drive on the south end of the zoo and go to the beach. Parking is limited so you have to come early to get a spot, else you can do street parking and walk over but you will have to feed the meter every 2 hours.

    First off..**FREE** Secondly this zoo is amazing. I still don't understand how it's free. Penguin house, lions, tigers, bears, they have it all!When I first moved to Chicago (broke) and had no idea what to do I would come to the zoo and just walk around enjoy being outside and really appreciate my new home of Lincoln Park. This is the first place I tell tourists visiting to Chicago to go!

    Beautiful zoo on the lakefront in downtown Chicago with a diverse animal population. Very well-maintained with several interactive activities for all ages. I went with my three nephews (10 yrs, 8 yrs & 14 months) and everyone had a great time! I would definitely recommend this zoo, and best of all...it's FREE!

    So awesome. I was there during December and they have a Holiday light show going on. So we went at night and just walked around and saw all the lights and some animals it was a lot of fun. Oh and did I mention it was free admission also.I thought the Zoo was great.

    I thoroughly enjoyed being able to walk through this free zoo in Chicago and seeing the different animals, plus it's another great place for a view of the Chicago skyline with a diagram pointing out what the buildings are that you're looking at.

    The Lincoln Park Zoo is a well put together and fee free location. This zoo is user friendly, lush and green, set right on Lake Michigan. During our visit we lucked out and were able to see the butterfly exhibition as well!
