Parking fees help fund neighborhood parks and programs.
Lincoln Park is an urban oasis set against a backdrop of downtown Chicago skyscrapers. Nestled between its business corridors and historic landmarks are peaceful parks and quiet, tree-lined streets where people can sit and relax or enjoy seasonal outdoor activities.
The neighborhood’s namesake park is a sprawling 1,208 acres of green space that contains the Lincoln Park Zoo, Lincoln Park Conservatory, Theatre on the Lake, a rowing canal, the Chicago History Museum, the Peggy Notebaert Nature Museum, the Alfred Caldwell Lily Pool, the North Pond Nature Sanctuary, Lincoln Park Archery Range, North Avenue Beach and Oak Street Beach, numerous playing fields, and statues of prominent figures including Ulysses S. Grant and Abraham Lincoln.
Within the park, guests will also find recreational facilities including the Lincoln Park Cultural Center, Margate Fieldhouse, and Clarendon Park.
