On Thursday, April 25 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.org.

Franklin Farm

Experience farm life in the middle of Boston! This warm-weather exhibit features a petting zoo, where children can see and touch friendly goats. Explore the brooder building, where newly-hatched chicks keep warm, and visit the chicken coop to greet several species of older chickens. The main barn houses ponies, donkey and goats. And keep an eye peeled for our resident barn cat!
