Crafting Your Experience

Welcome to Lincoln Park

The Lincoln Park neighborhood shares its name with the sprawling lakefront park that was renamed in 1865 to honor the late Abraham Lincoln. The neighborhood is home to numerous cultural and educational institutions such as the Lincoln Park Zoo, the Chicago History Museum, the Peggy Notebaert Nature Museum and DePaul University. Today, Lincoln Park is one of Chicago's most densely-populated and affluent communities and features vibrant commercial corridors along Armitage and Lincoln Avenues, Clark Street and Diversey Parkway.
