Lincoln Park, named after the city’s largest park, is one of the most popular neighborhoods in the City of Chicago. Located just two miles north of downtown, with its mix of parks, restaurants, bars, theaters, shopping and top schools, Lincoln Park ranks among the best urban neighborhoods in the country.  

The neighborhood’s namesake park is a sprawling 1,208 acres of green space with a nature museum and conservatory. It is anchored by one of the nation’s oldest zoos, The Lincoln Park Zoo, which is open year-round and free for all to visit.

Housing on the north side runs the gamut of price and style and Lincoln Park is no exception. For those seeking affordable entry, vintage condos and smaller town homes can provide exceptional value. Prices quickly escalate for the neighborhood’s new construction and rehabbed units. Single-family homes can easily reach upwards of $1 million and extend up into the multimillion dollar price point. For those seeking high-rise living, Lincoln Park offers multiple properties along its lakefront featuring gorgeous views of the park, lake and city.
