Summer is almost here, which means it's time to plan some outdoor fun, and a trip to the Lincoln Park Zoo is one of Chicago's favorite warm weather activities. When you visit, you'll be able to see small mammals like hedgehogs, reptiles like bearded dragons and even large predators like lions, tigers, and leopards.
If you want to make your visit extra special, visit the website to see which animal exhibits currently have babies, as well as the daily feeding schedules and enrichment programs. In addition to the animals, The Lincoln Park Zoo is also home to a popular conservatory with a boardwalk path through a variety of flowers, trees, and shrubs offering a combination of native and ornamental species. The conservatory is a popular picnicking destination, thanks to its skyline views of the city. Note that while admission to the zoo and conservatory is free, there is a fee for parking in the on-site lot.
