Small Zoo, Big Promise
By Hot Rod Rider from Staten Island, NY on
Bottom Line:
Yes, I would recommend this to a friend

Comments about Smart Destinations Franklin Park Zoo:

It's a medium-size zoo, not nearly the likes of the Bronx or Philly Zoos. But it's got big promise. The gorilla habitat is fantastic and they even have more exotic creatures like giraffes and lions. It's kind if a trek to get out there by public transport and by cab it's pretty pricey ($35 from Downtown Boston), but due to it's smaller scale, you can easily complete it in a few hours and still have time to get back to Boston for more exploring. Seems like they do a great job with the resources they have available.
