Lincoln Park was named for the 16th President of the United States shortly after his assassination in 1865. The park stretches along the lakeshore and contains the Lincoln Park Zoo, the Lincoln Park Conservatory and the Lincoln Park Cultural Center.

If you want to see the best views of Chicago, come here. There is always something to do here! The Zoo, Conservatory, the walking paths, etc. This is my favorite part of Chicago and it can easily be yours as well!

The Alfred Caldwell Lily Park is one of my favorite places in Chicago to create beautiful images. It is a whimsical place for photoshoots, especially for my recent "Princess and the Frog" themed project. 


Unlike Manhatten, Chicago is lucky enough to have tons of large parks throughout the city, and Lincoln Park is one of the best! with its sprawling fields and access to the beach its awesome to spend the day walking around the park or relax before a day at the beach!

Lincoln Park is one of Chicago's best places, hands down. You have the skyline, the conservatory, ample green space and the lake just a walk away. Come here to do some great people watching or before heading down to the beach.

Beautiful park with a variety of statues and greenery. Perfect for taking a walk or relaxing on a bench and people watching. Have been here several times and like to visit because it feels like a temporary escape from the city.
