About the Lincoln Park Zoo

Lincoln Park Zoo is dedicated to connecting people with nature by providing a free, family-oriented wildlife experience in the heart of Chicago and by advancing the highest quality of animal care, education, science and conservation.

The gardens at Lincoln Park Zoo elevate visitor experience by enhancing the aesthetic beauty of the grounds and are an essential component to achieving our mission of connecting people with nature. We also view plants within the gardens as a living resource that can support the well-being of animals in our care and local wildlife, as well as mission-based learning, research, and conservation initiatives.
