Lincoln Park is 1,208 acres, larger than New York's Central Park (843) and San Francisco's Golden Gate Park (1,017), and is 7 miles from the northern point to the southern.

Rate this fact:

To put that into perspective, the park is about as far from North to South as the city of San Francisco is from East to West.

Lincoln Park is also the second most visited city park in the country, as of 2010 (pdf).
