At the heart of Illinois is the Lincoln Park Zoo, located only 12 miles from our Oak Park Apartments. The zoo is one of the oldest in North America, with a rich history that dates back to the mid-1800s. This beautifully landscaped park hosts thousands of animal species and is ranked among the best Zoos and Aquariums in Illinois. The zoo is currently offering virtual experiences that allow animal lovers to interact and engage like never before. For residents of Oak Park Place apartments, this is the perfect time to get involved with local culture virtually while exploring all that Mother Nature has to offer.
Virtual Tours, Beers, and Conversation
The zoo is currently offering a series of exciting virtual events. Check out the zoo’s website for a breakdown of events, and then sign up for Virtual Breakfast with the Animals: Great Apes & Primates, Beer & Conservation: A Virtual Happy Hour with Lincoln Park Zoo, Virtual Meet-and-Greet with a Lincoln Park Zoo Animal, and more. The beer and conversation events are scheduled for Thursdays while virtual tours are offered on Saturdays from 10 A.M.
