Lincoln Park Zoo Carousel and Children's Train

Take a ride on the Endangered Species Carousel located next to the Lion House at the Lincoln Park Zoo, a Chicago landmark. Enjoy the hand carved and beautifully hand painted animals in need of protection. The young and the young at heart will all have fun hanging around with the colorful replicas of baby gorillas, polar bears, wild dogs and more.
