There are animals, a petting zoo, and rides - plenty to do with small children. The summer bird show is great, but might be a little scary. The a Education Centre has fun and educational classes for kids.

It's a very average zoo, but great for smaller kids and families. The membership will pay for itself in just a couple visits and includes the Franklin Park Zoo in town + all the seasonal events and activities the zoos offer. They've got all the basics plus concessions, gift shops, aviary, and playgrounds. Plenty of free parking at the Stone... More

We loved the ZooLights! So pretty! It was a great place to take the kids and show them the animals and the lights.

My wife and I had seen some advertisements for Stone Zoo's "Zoo Lights" celebration that they hold through the beginning of January and decided to check it out. I grew up with a small, local zoo nearby and it was always fun to just go and walk around for an hour or two. There is an admission charge for the... More

The Stone Zoo is a lot of fun for families. The zoo is small enough to explore it in a few hours (~3) and they support the local economy. The concessions are a bit expensive, but I hope you are not going to the zoo for the food! The facilities are very clean and the staff universally pleasant. In December,... More

This is a sad pathetic zoo. Sorry we wasted our time. Barely any animals to see. Expensive for what they had to offer. They need to revamp

I feel so very sad for the majority of the animals here. I understand the need for zoos, but this one is very dirty and the exhibits are often very cramped and awful. I will never bring my grandchildren here again.

I have always disliked zoos in general, but Stoneham Zoo is the exception. They have all sorts of events during the year at Holiday Time and there are always lights, animated figures, and a very family atmosphere; this is the choice for a nice cold night out with the kids, and it doesn't cost a fortune!.

The Stone Zoo is not a big zoo, yet it is worth the visit; especially if you can find discounted tickets. We use the local library to get our discounted tickets (only for locals), which makes visiting the park even more worth it. It's the perfect size for a quick outing and it's centrally located to many towns in the... More

We visited this zoo convenient off the highway. Clean and perfect size zoo for a day out. The price was reasonable and the zoo was shaded and the animals were close to see in their exhibits. We enjoyed the dancing porcupine and baby lynxs.
