Foursquare Tips

  • A Park worker told me the composite boards get very HOT ... especially on days with no cloud cover ... so avoid walking your dog here on very hot sunny days to protect his paws.
  • Lo mejor recorrerlo en bicicleta
  • Absolutely beautiful on a cool day.
  • Please respect what the Lincoln Park Zoo has done to create this space, and what they continue to do, to preserve, protect, and promote nature...Keep your dogs on leash; this is NOT a dog park!

  • Don't feed the Ducks.
