Stone Zoo is not very big, but well kept and the animals seem very well cared for. It's a great place to stroll around on a nice day and interact some with nature.

I love animals very much, and I know some zoos are there to help animals and to give them happy life, but this zoo is just so upsetting. The enclosures are way too small. I saw tree monkeys in a tiny enclosure with nothing but...More

That zoo is different from Franklin Park, and this is an advantage. Apes and flamingos were stars for our kids. The zoo may benefit from a lactation room or a family restroom.

I grew up in New England and I remember The Stone Zoo was often the butt of jokes due to it's lack of animals. I think it went through different phases. It never compared to the now defunct, Benson's Animal Farm. Unfortunately, I think some...More

While not as large in size as the Franklin Park Zoo by any means, we've always liked the Stone Zoo for it's convenience, parking, and location. In addition, the Zoo Lights, a traditional Christmas light display, is excellent.
