The zoo is always free. With kids, be sure to stop in the Children's Zoo and visit the Farm. Their holiday Zoo Lights display is a lot of fun!

At 49 acres, this zoo is one of the last in the nation offering free admission. Guests look through modern glass enclosures for a nose-to-nose encounter with gorillas and chimpanzees.

The zoo was founded in 1868, when the Lincoln Park Commissioners were given a gift of a pair of swans. In 1874, the swans were joined by a bear cub, the first animal purchased for the zoo.

The zoo is open 365 days a year, so you have flexibility for when you want to go! It's one of the last zoos to have FREE admission, so poor college kids, take advantage!

Part yoga pavilion, part outdoor classroom, the South Pond Pavilion at Chicago's Lincoln Park Zoo is a stunning architectural statement located along the Zoo's new Nature Boardwalk.

Enter at the east gate and go directly to the Gateway Pavilion to pick up a free visitor's guide from the information center… and a stroller.Powered by
