The Stone Zoo is a wonderful home for over 70 animals of different species. The zoo is an educational place for families and friends to learn all about wildlife.
The Stone Zoo is operated by the same folks over at Franklin Park Zoo, which is part of Zoo New England. If you’re planning to visit the zoo anytime soon, read on to learn all about it as well as some ways to save on tickets.
ABOUT THE STONE ZOO
The Stone Zoo was founded in 1905. It covers 26 acres of land that includes dense low-lying areas where small animals live, as well as rocky hillsides. The zoo started out as the Middlesex Fells Zoo with a collection of local animals. Soon thereafter, they began to take in more exotic species through the years as the number of visitors ballooned.
Aside from the main attraction of the animal exhibits, the Stone Zoo hosts several attractions as well. They have the Children’s Train, Jungle Fun, and Turbo Tub Rides, Masters of Flight: Birds of Prey, and a playground. There are also the behind-the-scenes tour where you get to see the Zoo in a new light as well as have your questions answered by experienced Zoo educators.
Admission to the Zoo starts at $19.95 but there are ways to save on tickets as well.
