What Sets Lincoln Park Zoo Apart?

I thought I’d try something a little different this week—I’m going to throw the post over to you.

I’m always looking to learn more about how people see the zoo. So here’s a question for you—in your mind, what sets Lincoln Park Zoo apart from other zoos and cultural institutions?
 
Weigh in below—I look forward to hearing what you think!

A Chicago Treasure

I cannot express how important the Lincoln Park Zoo is to the Chicago community. The opportunity to have a world class zoo right in the heart of town, and free? The exhibits are excellent, the docents are informative, the setting is unmatched. My wife and I take our nieces and nephew every year, and they thoroughly enjoy it. We have been members for over a decade, and are proud to contribute to the success of the zoo.

The Zoo Lights is a particularly wonderful attraction, and in fact one of our first dates was there. I hope everyone that lives in this city knows how lucky they are to have the zoo.

Thank You

Thanks for the feedback--we really appreciate it.

HOW GREAT THE PLACE LOOKS

IT HAS BEEN A LONG TIME SINCE I RETIRED IN 1995,AND TO SEE ALL THE IMPROVEMENTS REALLY AMAZES ME, I WOULD PROBABLY NOT REGOGNIZE THE PLACE.

I REALLY MISS THE ZOO, BUT I THINK I GOT OUT AT THE RIGHT TIME.

I HOPE THE ZOO FAMILY IS DOING GREAT, IT LOOKS LIKE IT. WISH I COULD COME BACK AND VISIT, BUT I REALLY CANNOT AFFORD IT NOW'

I WILL PROBABLY NOT GET A REPLY FROM YOU, AND I DO NOT BLAME YOU. YOU STILL LOOK BY THE WAY OF THE PHOTOS. YOU LOOK GREAT, TAKE CARE..

ONE THING THAT IS ON MY MIND, HOW COME I NEVER GET EVEN A ZOO MAGAZINE OR NEWSLETTER? IT MAKES ME SAID THAT ONCE A PERSON IS GONE NO ONE REALLY CARES.

I GAVE 27 YRS OF MY LIFE TO THE ZOO,AND NOW NO COMMUNICATION

WHAT HAPPENED...

I HAVE A BET WITH A FRIEND HERE IN LAS VEGAS, THAT YOU REALLY WILL NOT RESPOND TO THIS EMAIL,,,PLEASE MAKE ME WRONG.!!!!!!

BEST TO YOU KEVIN, GOD BLESS

Zoo Cams

I love the zoo and am a weekly visitor but I miss the zoo cams that you used to have. On those days that I could not visit the zoo in person, It was so nice to be able to go to the zoo web site and via the zoo cams be there. Please bring them back

Thanks!

Thanks for the suggestion, Carl. We'll be sure to pass it along.
