Lincoln Park Zoo Offers

At the Lincoln Park Zoo, the young (and the young at heart) will all have fun hanging around with the colorful replicas of baby gorillas, polar bears, wild dogs and more!

Just steps north of downtown, animals thrive in rainforests, savannahs and other habitats. See marine mammals in the Sea Lion Pool and chimpanzees and gorillas in the Center for African Apes.

Take a ride on the Endangered Species Carousel located next to the Lion House, a Chicago landmark. Enjoy the hand carved and beautifully hand painted animals in need of protection.

Across from the Seal Pool, kids can ride a train built just for them. Just pick the animal themed car and let the conductor take you away on this steam locomotive styled train!

Open 365 days a year.

Comments about Smart Destinations Lincoln Park Zoo Offers:

One of my favorite places in the city. Lincoln Park is one of the most beautiful zoos in the world. The lagoon, the lake front, the skyscrapers, and the animals make this spot unique. This zoo is a show piece for Chicago.
