Lincoln Park is absolutely beautiful all year round, the conservatory is especially nice but also take in the lake and some of the statues around the park.

Lincoln Park Conservatory is a great place to view lots of exotic plants, I only came in for 10 minutes but my trip was enjoyable and you probably don't need that much longer there unless you are really interested in plants. Not a must visit...More

Flowers are beautiful and the grass area out front with the gardens are beautiful also. Relaxing place to take a stroll and enjoy the flowers.

If you’ve been enjoying the hustle and bustle of Chicago and want a little pit stop to forget you are in the city then head here. It’s only small but also free and perfect place to rewind with nature for an hour.

This lovely conservatory is nicely located and free to enter. We entered after the zoo and just loved it! It’s another wonderful place to go in Chicago! Must see!

This is a beautiful little conservatory set in beautiful Lincoln Park. Very quick and peaceful - and of course free. Go there on a cold afternoon and take time to smell the roses. Or whatever. I love this place.

It was amazing to see this beautiful planting’s of flowers in the mist of a large city. You need at least a couple of hours

The Lincoln Park Conservatory is a beautiful place to visit. It's free and it's a lot bigger than it looks when you walk into the doors. The zoo is next door and a nice place for families to visit.

There is no admission fee and parking on the street is free on Cannon Drive, although it is hard to find an open space.
