Lincoln Park Zoo

(0 votes, average 0 out of 5)

ImageThe Lincoln Park Zoo is a free, green oasis in the midst of the city, just minutes north of downtown. A unique learning experience, it is sure to enthrall children with the variety of fauna housed within. Hear the majestic lion roar, watch gorillas climb trees, observe a beaver build a dam or wander through tropical rainforests, dry-thorn forests and spacious savannas. Marvel at the wonders of Regenstein African Journey, where hippos swim, monkeys swing, giraffes graze and meerkats stand at attention when visitors arrive. The zoo also emphasizes on conservation of the rare and beautiful creatures of the wild.
Children are sure to enjoy Farm-in-the-Zoo, a kid-friendly countryside farm located at the zoo’s south end.
