“Awesome otters and nearby swimming pool / park.”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed August 7, 2012 via mobile

Very nice, affordable stop. Nicely kept. Gift shop has lots of reasonably priced stuffed animals. You can also enjoy the park and pool that surround the zoo. Great view of town from hill.

“Something to do with kids in Watertown”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 28, 2012

Nice size zoo for small children, located in a great park designed by Fredrick law Olmstead. No fancy exotic animals, just animals you would find in the northeast. Good walking paths. Best for kids under 8 years old

Good Zoo. They have only local animals, that is very interesting, because you can learn more about those animals.
