Lincoln Park ranks up with New York's Central Park as one of the nation's finest urban playgrounds. In fact, the two were designed by the same landscape architect genius, Frederick Law Olmstead. From North Avenue all the way up to Ardmore, Lincoln Park encompasses over 1000 acres (405 hectares) of rolling green spaces and pretty lakes. Locals prize the viewing bridge over the North Pond that looks out at the Michigan Avenue Skyline. Visit the Lincoln Park Zoo and the Chicago Historical Society . Dozens of statues, including the famous statue of General Grant, can be found here. Look for other statues of Goethe, Shakespeare, Sir George Solti, Ben Franklin, and Hans Christian Anderson. Be sure to watch out behind you, though. Joggers, roller-bladers and bicyclists tend to whip through here without caution.
Lincoln Park is filled with people who all look and dress the same. The whole neighborhood is overflowing with yuppies who try to fit a certain image, and college kids who all seem to love polo shirts with popped collars and khaki shorts. Bucktown/Wicker Park is a real neighborhood with real people. I recommend it over Lincoln Park....trust me ive lived in this town for decades.
I've lived in Lincoln Park for most of my life before moving to Dallas for my job and there's no place like it in the city. There is always a fantastic restaurant within reach and plenty of things to do. Better yet, you can just sit in one of the parks and people watch! That's always fun!
