very nice place to take the kids,it will entertain them with there animals/amusements for hours. a little high on admission for what kind of animals are on display, i'd expect more larger animals. but definately entertained the little grandkids for the day.

The Stone Zoo "Zoo Lights" attraction looked fantastic in advertisements. However, when you get there, it's just walking around in a dirty place with a lot of lights strung up everywhere. Although it is beautiful, it takes around 20 minutes. Also, there are a ton of families with very little zoo workers organizing the place. The line to see the... More

We heard the 'Zoolights' holiday display at the Stoneham Zoo was a popular and fun event, so we went with a group of about 30 family and friends to visit on Saturday night (12/21/13). I must say, it was not only disappointing, we actually feel a bit ripped off. The Zoolights exhibits open at 5pm and the parking lot was... More

I've been coming here for years & now it's a tradition to take my own children every year. It's local, inexpensive & they love it. Enjoy seeing what's new every year!

The animals are great and they bring in new and different animals from time to time. The holiday lighting at Christmas time is great.

I was surprised to see all the harsh criticism directed at the Stone Zoo for being so small and having a scarcity of animals. After all, it is what it is; a little local zoo, not the Eighth Wonder of the World. I've lived in this area all my life and have been visiting this zoo from time to time... More

We visited on Labor Day 2013 with 3 adults. It took us about an hour to see everything. The animals appeared well taken care of.

I have been to the Stone Zoo a handful of times and my favorite is always visiting during the Zoo Lights celebration around Christmas. The zoo is small and has a good group of animals. My favorite being the river otters and flamingos! The Zoo Lights celebration takes place every December. The park is transformed with thousands of lights and... More
