Please be advised that on April 25 at Franklin Park Zoo and April 26 at Stone Zoo, we will be conducting a routine animal escape drill. These drills are an important part of our preparedness training. While the drill is occurring, guests will be asked to move to certain areas within the Zoo for a brief period of time (not to exceed 10 minutes). We will do our best to have minimal impact on the guest experience. We are very dedicated to safety and we appreciate your participation. If you have any questions about what to expect, please do not hesitate to contact us at 617-989-2000 or info@zoonewengland.com.

Prepare to be immersed in a world of nature, adventure and imaginative play in the all new Nature’s Neighborhoods—the new George Robert White Fund Children’s Zoo!


Discover our aviary friends, like the hooded crane or the scaly-sided merganser, atop the Eagle's Nest, and get a bird’s eye view of the entire Zoo. Explore the prairie dog neighborhood by getting an up close and personal view of our adorable little critters in the Prairie Dog Pop Up. Play next to the red pandas on our Bamboo Climber, featuring live bamboo plantings and an array of climbable “bamboo” poles. Marvel at the muntjacs, a Southeast Asian deer with a doglike bark. And adventure through the Grass MAze to discover sculpted elements representing animals that live in the grasslands. Don’t forget to visit our turtle friends swimming and sunning themselves in our two turtle ponds!
