Very family friendly! The animals are well cared for and well loved. There are many play areas for kids and great places to picnic. The peacocks roam freely and you could spot them anywhere. If you live close by, definitely buy a membership. The park is beautiful and the parking is free.

I can’t believe that this is supposed to be the biggest zoo in the Boston area, or may be late March is not the best time to visit when many animals are not on exhibit. First they were out of maps so we weren’t sure if we weren’t missing anything, the paths and signs are kinda confusing. They only have one place that offers food, which is also odd. The parking lot is messy and not sufficient and the most important part, they don’t have a wide variety of animals. I’ve been to other zoos in way smaller cities and they were better organized and had many animals all year round. I guess the best part is the huge playground they have, my son had a great time playing there.

This zoo is perfect for a family visit, it is spacious and clean with interesting animals. We loved the bird feeding area and the "Jungle" area with the Pygmy Hippo and Gorillas. The Zoo has a great flow to it so you dont feel like you need to zigzag back and forth all day. A must visit while in the Boston area

It is a really family friendly place. The children love it. The animals look taken care of and some of them like to interact with visitors. It is a really big zoo with many species of creatures from all over the world. I don't like the fact that the animals they're being held away from their natural habitats. A really educational experience.

I've been to a fair amount of zoos and this is easily the worst one I've been to. Small, caged enclosures for the animals that really didn't appear to be up to the ideal conditions, especially for the larger cats who would appreciate more space to run and move about. A few of the animals, tiger and hyena included we're just pacing back and forth. Birds in a small netted area with not a lot of room to fly. It was sad to see. I understand that it's a smaller zoo in the middle of a city, but there really needs to be a lot of improvements for the sake of the animals.
