You would never guess you were minutes away from a big city! The zoo is nice and there is plenty of space to walk around and enjoy the views.

Concerts held in Lincoln Park are always a fun experience. It's a large area that fills up quick, but there is always room to move around. If you're fortunate to get tickets for Lollapalooza or Riotfest, you're in for a real treat!
