New Feature!



Tax dollars don't go to waste at Lincoln Park Zoo. With free admission, locals love it just as much as tourists. The Zoo is open 365 days a year and constantly hosts events and activities. Trick-or-treat amongst critters on Halloween and visit the festively lit park during Christmastime. Larger habitats include the elephants, cheerful sea lions and the endangered Siberian Tiger. The Zoo's conservation efforts have added quite a number of endangered species to the resident list.
