What is there to do?

Who is excited to have an animal adventure on your next family day out? We certainly are, and so is Franklin Park Zoo in Massachusetts!

This New England attraction has hundreds of exotic animals from all around the world, just ready to make friends! It's also a great place for kids to really learn about all of the animals too!

Franklin Park Zoo is divided into different main areas, so you can straight away head to the ones that interest you the most!

For those families who love those winged creatures, the Aussie Aviary and Bird's World Exhibit are where you want to head first! These are filled with colorful and beautiful creatures who might even come and sit on your arm!

The Bufferfly Landing is also a fun seasonal oasis where kids can watch these delicate creatures fly around them, and a visit to Kid's Corner will give them fun things to do, from learning to create wildlife habitats, and making their own butterfly mask!

Kids can experience farm life in the middle of Boston with Franklin Farm, with interactive encounters! They can visit the chicken coops, and pet animals such as sheep and goats!

At Franklin Park Zoo, you don't need to travel the world to see all the beautiful creatures that live in it. Here, the world comes to you! You can experience Africa with the Kalahari Kingdom, Serengeti Crossing and Giraffe Savannah, with those majestic creatures - a magical experience!

Australia is calling at the Outback Trail, and explore those beautiful gorillas in the Tropical Forest.

Don't miss the all new children's zoo as well - Nature's Neighbourhood! Great for those little ones to explore.

There really is so much to see and do at this New England zoo, perfect for the whole family. So let's go!

I'm Hungry!


From the Giddy Up Grill to the Things Wild snacks, there are great and tasty treats for you to enjoy, and lunch options too

Healthy Eating You can bring your own food and lunch into the zoo! So you can enjoy a picnic with the animals (but make sure you only feed yourselves!)

Where is it at?

Teachers corner


They have great educational programs and field trips (which are FREE to Massachusetts schools!) - so why wouldn't you want to have a great day out learning!

Can I get one of those?


You can pick up fun merchandise and souvenirs at the Things Wild gift shop - so get that pocket money out!
