Chicago Travel Guide

Lincoln Park, Wicker Park, and Bucktown

In 1864 Lincoln Park—the park, which extends from North Avenue to Foster Avenue—became the city's first public playground. Its zoo is legendary. The area adjacent to it, bordered by Armitage Avenue, Diversey Parkway, the lake, and the Chicago River, took the same name. To the west, in Wicker Park and Bucktown, up-to-the-minute fashions mix with old-world memories and gorgeous Victorian-era architecture.
