Perfect for families especially those with small children as it is a compact facility, with a lot to offer in a small space. Staff was friendly and eager to share knowledge. Grounds were clean and exhibits were readily accessible. Flamingos were beautiful!!!

Zoo is smaller but still a nice zoo. It appeared they were renovating. Free parking on site. Zoo was clean. My son loved the flamingos and the bears.

Stone Zoo is the "little sibling" in the Zoo New England family, but it's a nice place to visit, and much easier to get to than Franklin Park, especially if you live north of Boston. They are in the middle of construction, which is supposed...More

This is not a grand zoo by any means of the imagination but decent enough to entertain the young ones and to teach them a thing or two. It's an eclectic menagerie - from a pair of American Bald Eagles and a prosaic Barn Owl...More
