We often walk along the paths near Fullerton and the lake and between Lincoln Park West and the lakefront with our kids. Whenever we run errands in Lincoln Park or visit the Peggy Notebaert Nature Museum we tend to end up at Cummings Playground as well. Our kids love this park's sand feature. The zoo, Lincoln Park Conservatory, the beach, harbors and plenty of open fields and gardens are all here to enjoy.
The surrounding real estate across from the park is fantastic! I usually talk my wife into bringing the kids to RJ. Grunts just west of the park for an early dinner. For more posts on Lincoln Park, click HERE
