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

We bought a family membership to the Stone Zoo in support of our town's resources & for a family friendly place to visit. Although we have used our passes on several occasions, the zoo is in need of updating & there are not enough animals to visit. We stopped at their Resource Center and were met by two very enthusiastic... More

Went to the Zoo today after not being there in well over 30+ yrs. Back when I went, it was a donation, not an actual amount. But the fee was not what I was disappointed with. I found the zoo to be dirty and lacking any type of learning experience. For a state run zoo, this state should be ashamed... More
