The Lincoln Park Zoo is just one of the many can’t-miss attractions in Lincoln Park. Visiting the zoo is extremely affordable: admission is free and there’s plenty of reasonably priced parking nearby. Read on for the best parking options at Chicago’s Lincoln Park Zoo.
Lincoln Park Zoo Official Parking
Location: 2001 N. Clark St.
On-Site Parking: Lot at 2400 N. Cannon Dr. for $20-$35
Best Nearby Parking: The official lot is a great location, and by far the closest, but you’ll pay a premium. The best paid parking is a nearby valet garage: 2100 N. Lincoln Park West. You can book online and have a spot waiting for you when you arrive.
- There is a Divvy Bike Station 1 minute from the beach at the corner of N. Clark St. and Armitage Ave. There are about 15 Divvy Stations within a mile, so you can park near one of those and bike to Lincoln Park Zoo.
- If you park at a metered spot, download the ParkChicago app to replenish your meter from the zoo.
