I really appreciate Franklin Park and its Zoo. Great experiences... The animals seem well taken care of and quite engaging during my latest visits spring and summer 2018 visits. In addition to that good news, there is a lot more to enjoy at the Zoo: the farm, the enclosed sites and gardens, the rides, the playground, the animals that walk around without restrictions, the animals that must be enclosed for safety purposes, the food and the walking paths that lead to shade and rest points. It's great. There are not a ton of shaded areas at certain times of the day, so summer visits require cool clothes, plenty of water and sunblock. If you appreciate nature and its simplicity- you'll likely enjoy yourself, greatly. The kids certainly will...especially once they make it to the main playground attraction. Very cool, however, some structures and slides may be hot during high sun due to a lack of shade in some areas. Oh! One last thing- Franklin Park Zoo has a cool dinosaur exhibit now, too! It'll cost you extra but you only live once. Plus, library discounts help save money so plan and budget for a win- win! 😀 See you there!
