Great place to spend an afternoon.
Awesome Zoo and it's open most of the time.
Love this zoo. Love that it's "free". Factor in parking before you make the trip!
Plenty to see, great scenery and pretty informative signs at the exhibits. Overall is a great experience.
Great zoo, and entry is free!
Free zoo but paying for parking is required. Lots of stuff to do here on a nice day. Decent petting zoo on the children's farm as well.
A very fun place to see many animals and the exhibits and best of all its free admission!
Free to the public and closes at 7 pm get there early but easy to find at least
I love this zoo. It's free, in the middle of the city, constantly being improved, and a quiet respite from the hustle and bustle.
Lots of fun and love all the animals. Great for everyone
zoo lights is fun and beautiful
I hate zoos but the holiday light show around the property is so freaking cool and fun to watch!!
Nothing not to like here. Free zoo with lions, tigers, monkeys, gorillas, seals. Great place for a walk. I was there in winter when they have a light show. Now there is a skating rink too. $5 to skat
Free zoo and zoo lights
Winter time Zoo Lights is fun. Great zoo. Free. Good location to do other things. Check out the nature Broadwalk right there and cafe Brauer for food and neat view of the city skyline.
The lion and tiger were chuffing at each other in the Cat House. It was very cool to hear. The tiger was cool, but the lion wanted a fight!
Beautiful and I like that there was so many things to see plus it was free
Free admission, great exhibits.
So many random animals but defs worth a visit!
It's an awesome walk through the park... specially since it's free!

The new exhibit snow monkeys is pretty awesome.
The zoo is free! Giraffes, rhinos, lions, penguins, and a great view of the city from the nature walk bridge!
Entry is free for everyone, clean, easy to navigate, and a GREAT skyline view from the nature boardwalk. Easy access to CTA buses.
We definitely got what we paid for. We came in the middle of Sept at 2ish, and a lot of the animals were not out.

The sea lions

Amazing free zoo! Make sure to visit the cute red pandas!
With free admission every day of the year, the Lincoln Park Zoo is a beloved Chicago institution. There’s a lot to see in the 35-acre park.
Best free zoo in the country, and maybe even better than a lot of paid ones
Walk right in and meet some animals up close and personal. 🐯 (Layout is a little wonky - we went around in circles looking for giraffes.)
It's a zoo! In the middle of a park! In the middle of a city! And it's FREE. There are two mold-a-rama machines, one in the barn on the farm, the other in the small primate house.
a beautiful zoo, free for everyone.
free admission! also good food quality, and not insanely high prices, wide variety!
It's free admission, and the Gorillas are the best exhibit
Don't leave without 'gramming the Jeanne Gang pavilion.
The house with the giraffe that simulates an African evironment is mandatory!
Best Zoo in Chicago!!!
This zooming vision machine does not work. Steals your .50.
