Lincoln Park is located on the north side of Chicago, bordered by Lakeview to the north, Logan Square to the west and Old Town to the south. The community is named after Lincoln Park, a vast public park bordering Lake Michigan. That park, in turn, is named after US president Abraham Lincoln.
Lincoln Park is approximately two miles from downtown and is home to tree-lined streets and active commercial corridors. The neighborhood is also well-connected to its neighboring communities and beyond by various modes of transportation. Lincoln Park is easily accessed via the Clybourn Metra station, several L stations and bus stops, the Kennedy Expressway and the famous lakefront bike and walking trail.
This community is home to dozens of cultural institutions, museums, music venues, art galleries and other outlets for you and your family. It’s also known for its reputable middle and high schools, as well as DePaul University.
