Welcome to Lincoln Park
Within the landmark districts of Lincoln Park, you’ll find historic churches, handsome brick row houses, modern condos and student housing, serene parks, active business corridors, and quiet residential streets.
The community boasts lakefront recreation, zoo, performing arts and music scene, abundance of shops, and range of restaurants—from BYOB ethnic spots to high-end ticketed experiences. An ample 1,208 acres of green space, the neighborhood’s namesake park hosts a free zoo, theater, nature museum and conservatory, 15-acre pond, five playgrounds, and bustling harbor. Its nearby lakefront trail and beaches are set against a backdrop of downtown skyscrapers.
Packed with small boutiques and high-end retailers on Armitage Avenue, casual cafes and eateries spilling out onto sidewalks on Clark and Halsted Streets, and a buzzing bar and music landscape on Lincoln Avenue, Lincoln Park sets the stage for college students, young professionals, and families who also desire the cast-iron facades and sense of history.
