Wander through the Lincoln Park Zoo with Mayor Lightfoot! Connect with nature, get a glimpse of urban wildlife and see why the zoo is also an accredited arboretum. Free and open to the public throughout the year, the Lincoln Park Zoo is a perennial hometown favorite.

The Lincoln Park Zoo is our final destination. Highlights of our trip include hanging out with the gorillas and watching them use touch screens; learning about the Chilean flamingos’ pink plumage and preference for standing on one leg; meeting Seku, the 1,000-pound polar bear; and visiting the chicken coop, where visitors can take turns at feeding the chickens. We’ve made it fun for families to learn together. Check out our activities for all ages and abilities. Use the hashtag #StayHomeHitPlay to share your creations.
