We wanted to check out a new Zoo and this was suggested to us. It is about a 45 minute ride form where we live and that is about the amount of time it takes to walk through the Zoo. Nice variety of animals but it is very small. Our girls enjoyed it but we will probably not make it... More

Not a zoo... We have the Palm beach Zoo and Miami zoo and this was not a zoo... Besides the three Large tigers there was nothing amazing about the zoo... They have a small splash pad taken over by summer camps so it isn't convenient for a small family... A small 4 ft alligator and a lizard... O wait and... More

Was not overwhelming, our young kids (ages 3 and 1) had a great time. We were able to see all the animals and still get home in time for a nap!

The zoo and Capron Park are worth a nice day trip.The zoo is very well maintained, and the animals all seem well cared for. There is a nice petting area for kids, and much to see and do for everyone.I live in Attleboro, but if lived a distance,I would suggest packing a lunch.The Capron Park area is perfect for a... More

We love Capron Park Zoo. I buy a yearly membership. The zoo and park are so much fun. It's a small zoo that isn't overwhelming especially when you buy a membership. My daughter goes to camp there every year as well. The staff are like good friends now.

Yes, the zoo is small, but it is very well laid out and does not feel cramped! Plenty of space for all! There is MUCH more to do here than just see the animals. There is a splash pad for children to enjoy inside the zoo. There are beautiful lawns, benches and shady spots FREE outside the zoo, to play... More
