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.

Our granddaughter Josie was a bit young (2 months!) to appreciate the animals, but my husband, daughter and I had a great time. The weather was perfect (72/partly cloudy) for walking around with a little one. There is plenty of shade, even in the parking lot (free parking!) and there was more to see than we had anticipated! Although this... More

Stopped by on a lark on drive back from Red Sox game and enjoyed an affordable viewing of snow leopards, wolves, jaguar, cougar, bear, monkeys, otter, etc. Good viewing of the animals, but not brilliant for natural setting photos given the plethora of fencing. Animals seemed well attended to. Nice education signs, not overly commercial. Not too crowded, lots of... More

I've been coming here for years and still enjoy it. I have been bringing my son, now 11, and his friends for years. This is the type of place you can go through in an hour and 1/2 easily. They have made some improvements, but other parts of the zoo needed some attention. New American alligator exhibit offers a close-up... More

This zoo is small and doesn't have many animals and is in need of an update. We went this year and the bear attraction as well as the bird building were closed. They really wasn't much to see or do. Only one of the ride was running and it took 20 minutes to for my order of chicken fingers to... More

Went with my husband to a nearby restaurant and happened to pass the zoo, we wanted something different to do outside so we decided to go. Such a small zoo! We were disappointed that there wasn't more there, lots of local seeming animals instead of exotic. An intern was there for the summer and I asked her what they feed... More

Stone Zoo is quite small but it is a very nice zoo. The animal exhibits are very nice and the animals looked well cared for. There was also a farmyard area. We went through the zoo in about 1 hour (I had a teen with me) but with small kids, you could easily spend 2-3 hrs there. Definitely a place... More
