See roaring lions, playful meerkats and majestic gorillas in Lincoln Park. The Lincoln Park Zoo is free and open every day of the year. Visitors can go nose-to-nose with gorillas and chimpanzees, howl with red wolves, peer into a black bear den and immerse themselves in the sights and sounds of Africa with wild dogs, pygmy hippos and black rhinos. Beyond providing a wild home to hundreds of species, Lincoln Park Zoo also operates one of the largest zoo-based conservation and science programs in the country. Chicago’s free zoo is located just minutes from downtown Chicago at Lake Shore Drive and Fullerton Parkway.
