The Stone zoo may be on the smaller side but the have the largest variety of large cats that I have ever seen. Also they use clear glass for the enclosures so you can get really close to the animals, take some great pictures and see everything clearly.

We bring our twin grandchildren here all the time. It's a small zoo that is very easy to walk - which I find a plus. The two "brother bear" exhibit is great and we've watched these two bears grow up. The flamingo exhibit currently has some eggs waiting to hatch. The baby mountain goat is really fun to watch. The... More

If you visit this zoo don't miss the bird show called Masters of flight at the Amphitheater, this was my favorite part. The kids enjoyed the playground.

I went to the zoo as part of a preschool outing with a group of older 3- and 4-year- olds. They enjoyed it very much. They loved seeing the animals and also enjoyed the 15 minute bird show. The narrator/moderator, unfortunately, talked too fast and did not adjust her talk to the audience. I had trouble understand her (I am... More

I brought my sister and 2 1/2 year old nephew to the zoo and we had a great day. It is the right size for him to walk most of it, see the animals up close, and go back to revisit all of our favorites. He enjoyed the playground as well. We were impressed even though not everything was open... More

Zoo just opened, so still some snow left on the ground. The animal exhibits for most if not all the larger animals, VERY inadequate. The animals have nothing to look forward to except to sit in their tiny enclosure, panting, or listless, waiting for their next meal. The animal enclosures looked run down, and very unkept. The smell from most... More

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

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
