Nice and patience. Waited for me to chose. Bathroom lines were long and people got pushed. Saw all the animals. Fine in the cafe and gave me free ice. Volunteers were helpful.

I liked the animals such as the gorillas, the red panda, the lynx, the monkeys, the roaring lion, the seals, the polar bears, the flamingos, ducks, swans, canada geese, zebras, and the alpacas. I liked their cheeseburgers at the cafe. Yummy burgers! I also like that it is free to get in the zoo. I also like the gift shop for stuffed animals. I also like their funnel cakes and other treats at the concession stands as well.

I have participated in several Disability Awareness Trainings at this zoo, as well as having visited it several other times. It's a great zoo, mostly because it's one of the only free zoos in the United States. Some of the buildings could be updated a bit, since the zoo is also one of the oldest in the country. I felt like some of the enclosures were a bit small for their residents, and sometimes I see animals pacing like they are bored. Other than that, though, it seems like they do their best to take care of their animals. The zoo employees provide great customer service as well, and are very accommodating to their guests. When I was there for one of the trainings we did, they took us behind the scenes of their penguin and ape exhibits, which I thought was really interesting. I'd definitely go back someday!

We had an overall good experience at the zoo. It was not crowded but some exhibits are under construction or closed for the off season. Staff were helpful and welcoming and gave us time to be independent. There is ample parking and most exhibits are accessible.

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.

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.
