A great place for young children, or anyone interested in animals. Parking is free, and admission price is inexpensive - free for members! Costs help with much-needed conservation efforts. Get there before noon to find a good parking spot - or take the T. Nice variety, with knowledgeable helpful staff. Barn animal petting area was cool - food was good. A nice little oasis in the big city.

Really fun time! Even going in November when it’s a bit colder there are still a lot of animals out and the reptile/gorilla indoor exhibit is always a blast. Definitely a great weekend thing to do just outside of Boston.

My son loves it! His favorite place to go. Love the birds and gorillas. Easy to park. Good for family as they have a nice playground. Recommend to have their annual pass if your kids love animals, great deal. See the cool picture I took for the white tiger!

This a wonderful zoo located with in the city. It is on the small side but that makes it perfect for when you need to find a family activity to do for only a few hours.

Sort of a smaller zoo but overall very nice. Great playgrounds for kids. They need more funding to improve some of the enclosures so I totally would support visiting again/donating!
