Lincoln Park Zoo Is Closed

Lincoln Park Zoo is closed to the public through March 4 in order to ensure the safety of the zoo community. Otherwise, with buildings closed in order to honor city and state regulations, guests would not have access to warming spaces during Chicago’s coldest time of the year.


Zoo Members

During the closure, the zoo will reopen just for members on two weekends: Saturday and Sunday, January 9 and 10, and Saturday and Sunday, February 27 and 28.

All members must make a reservation. January timeslots are now available; February timeslots will be available after the January weekend.
