Polcari’s, Rain Forest Cafe, Harrows, Fuddruckers, Whole Foods and a dozen other food and a few beer brewers setup around the zoo while you enjoy a behind the scenes show at the zoo. You’ll see all the usual suspects and a few of the keepers will bring out some animals for an up close show for all you animal lovers!I’ve been to zoo’s all over the world, AND of course this place doesn’t compare to San Diego. or the Bronx Zoo’s ….STOP COMPARING IT!!!.. Massachusetts doesn’t invest in their zoo’s, we just don’t have the funding…it’s like comparing a Ferrari to a Hyundai… Stone zoo has a small number of animals and it’s not glitz and it’s not always pretty but it’s informative and it comes down to what you take from it. Funding around the country for zoo’s is getting smaller and feel fortunate that you have Franklin and the Stone to enjoy. Zoo’s are closing around the US, take a moment and enjoy what you have… throw on your jeans… take your baby brother, or your little niece …hell, come by my house and I’ll go with you…and enjoy your visit to the Stone Zoo!
