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.


One Boston Day Sock Drive

Onebostonday Header


In honor of One Boston Day, Zoo New England’s Franklin Park Zoo in partnership with Hilton is hosting a sock drive to benefit Bay Cove Human Services.

Zoo guests are encouraged to donate a new pair of socks, which will go to the homelessness service programs of Boston non-profit Bay Cove Human Services--including The Cardinal Medeiros Center, a day program based in Roxbury for older adults who are currently homeless. A clean, dry pair of socks is hardly a luxury for most of us, but it’s something that can have a huge impact on the comfort, health and safety of men and women in our community who are facing the challenges of being homeless.

On April 14 and 15, donations of new socks can be dropped off in the designated boxes near the admission booths at both of Franklin Park Zoo’s entrances, as well as at Hilton Logan Airport and Hilton Downtown Faneuil Hall.
