When walking up from the gold coast to the park the statue of Abraham Lincoln is the first thing you see. Nice statue with a seating area.

As we walked to the Buckingham Fountain, we came across this memorial to Lincoln. I’m not sure the history or who put this statue up but it was really surprising and sad to see it so unkept. Lots of weeds in the steps leading up...More

I came across this monument after visiting the nearby Lincoln Park Conservatory. The monument isn’t that interesting to be honest. Just a statue of Abraham Lincoln. Not worth a visit, but if it’s in your path, why not?

This is not exactly the same as the Lincoln Monument in Washington, D.C., but in this statue, President Lincoln is standing by a chair. I think the statue is a fitting reminder who the park and the zoo is named after. Part of a huge...More

My family has visited here a couple times over the past few years. The Lincoln Monument is definitely a must see when in Washington, DC. Seeing Lincoln sitting there makes you think back to the life he lived and the weight of things that were...More

The monument is of Lincoln standing by a chair. It is set on a raised semi-circle area with a bench in the raised area. Since the statue is in Lincoln Park it is quite appropriate that the statue stands tall - it is also lit...More
