“Family pass”
Reviewed February 24, 2014 via mobile

I have the family pass and find myself at the zoo often. I bring my young child, and friends all the time. Every time we go something interesting happens. We found a snapping turtle baby on the wetlands trail, the elephants were getting treats and the trainers were making them appear to smile, the monkeys threw things at my cousin, a bird in the monkey house kept flying at me. I've been to many zoos across the country, this one is very nice and a lot of fun.

“Great local zoo”
Reviewed February 24, 2014

Great place to spend a nice day outside enjoying New England. This is such a great zoo, they are constantly making additions to the park and changing attractions so it is a little different each time you go.

The new Hasbro Big Backyard is great for the young ones. Lots of interactive play. I saw that they will have a petting zoo this spring which will be amazing!
