Fun with a group of young children. The zoo is a good size - not too big, not too small. The zoo seemed to be under construction when we visited, and some areas were clearly being improved, but even so it was a good place to spend two hours.

We visited with our daughter in July. The zoo is older, but has a decent collection of animals. We found the food to be low quality. The staff is very nice and everyone is always busy. It was a good visit, but we won't need to come back. Other options are around.

Took our twin toddlers here over the weekend. It's a small zoo, but that's almost a plus with the short-attention-span set. We were there for about 2 hours, which was perfect to see everything and perfect for their attention span. The variety of animals is less than a larger zoo (no elephants, giraffes, lions) but there are some fun exhibits... More

Came to the stone zoo today with the family to get out of the house and get some fresh september air. This place is perfect. Not overwhelming yet plenty of variety as far as animals go. Bears, all kinds of cats, birds, wolves, just to name a few. Perfect family trip. Will definitely be back

The zoo is small and not very exciting by big city standards but we loved the bats. It's a bit pricey for the experience and the food prices are too high. Bring a lunch!

The Stone zoo is a small zoo, and as such, does not have a tremendous variety of animals. There are a couple of big cats, and some other interesting ones, but all in all, there's not a great variety of big animals. That being said, it is still a pleasant zoo, spaced out, with a good amount of shade. The... More

My husband and I visited on one of the hottest days of the year and we still had a great time. It is smaller in comparison to other zoos but they still have a nice variety of animals. The only animal we didn't get to see was the snow leopard (since it was so hot they kept him inside this... More

This was our son's favorite zoo at one time, and we were looking forward to visiting again after a 3 to 4 year absence. The prices have gone up ($18 for 13 and over without a discount for military family members) and the quality has gone down. Like other zoos in New Engalnd including Frankllin Park in Boston, Roger Williams... More

My friend happens to work at this zoo and was showing me around. I thought it was very clean, well laid out and the diversity of animals was great too. We saw the bear training (when it's hot out, they tend to be lazy FYI) and they did a great job of getting little kids involved with it. I'm a... More
