Our group found several concerns with the park: it was crowded, bathrooms were not clean, and it was difficult to find parking.

this is the fourth and final training we have done at the zoo. Every training the audience had been very engaged. I think these folks are really dedicated to making the zoo a really friendly place for people with all abilities. Thank you very much Rick.

I attended another event here at the zoo this morning. It went very well, and all volunteers and staff with whom I interacted were great. This zoo is wheelchair-accessible and has plenty of space to maneuver around.

The disability awareness training at Lincoln Park Zoo was a huge success! I appreciated that the audience was actively engaged in the training and role plays. There was a strong interest and recognition of the importance in disability awareness in the audience. The training seemed to allow the audience to clearly recognize the need to be disability aware in employment as well! We did the training with a lot of humor and the audience enjoyed that! The staff was very friendly and welcoming!

The staff at Lincoln Park Zoo really went out of their way for us. However, some of the buildings didn't have automatic push plates for the doors to make them wheelchair accessible. I really enjoyed the time I spent there and learned a lot.

I have been to Lincoln Park Zoo over the summer with the YMCA teen camp. I took a picture with the penguins. Penguins is my favorite animal. Penguins is cute and cuddly and they also love to eat fish. They love the cold weather. The penguins lived in Antarctica, that is South Pole the coldest contient. It's the seven of seven contients.

I've taken the Metra to the Clybourn Metra Station with a friend and have taken the CTA bus over to the Lincoln Park Zoo. When we've been to the Lincoln Park Zoo together, it hasn't been too hard to find our way around the zoo. The Lincoln Park Zoo is a free zoo in Chicago and it's free to get in. When my friend and I walked into the zoo, we walked around a little and went in the gift shop. When my friend and I went in the gift shop, they had good customer service there. The employees in the gift shop were helpful and friendly. They showed us around and gave us extra time to pay. After we left the gift shop, we walked around the zoo some more and then ate lunch at the Park Place Cafe. They also have good customer service there and it's wheelchair accessible. When my friend and I were in line to get some food, we went to the hot dog booth and ordered hot dogs with french fries and a drink. When we forgot a tray, the guy behind the counter gave us one for each of us and then took our order. After we paid for our food, we sat down at a table and ate our lunch. After we finished our food, we left the cafe, and walked around the Lincoln Park Zoo some more. My friend and I both like the Lincoln Park Zoo. We like the endangered animals, the giraffes, the rhinoceroses, the lions, etc. After we finished walking around the Lincoln Park Zoo and looking at all the animal exhibits, we left the Lincoln Park Zoo and then took the bus and train back home. The Lincoln Park Zoo is a fun zoo to go to.

I went to Zoo Lights last Wednesday with some neighbors. One of my next-door neighbors' sons works at Lincoln Park Zoo as a security guard, and he takes us each year. This was my second time attending Zoo Lights, and it was a lot of fun. The lights are different colors for the winter holidays, and although I don't have any color perception I was able to see the lights as well as hear the cool music. My neighbor's son got us some refreshments too. This zoo is completely wheelchair-accessible.
