About Zoo New England

The Franklin Park Zoo is 72 acres, located in Boston, MA. It has 1,000 plus animals, 220 species, and officially opened to the public in 1912/1913. The zoo was managed by the Boston Parks Department, was free, and extremely popular.

It fell into disrepair around the depression and World War II. In 1958, the Metropolitan District Commission took control. They put up fences and gates and started to charge for attendance.

The Children’s Zoo opened in 1962, and the Boston Zoological Society assumed some but not all of the management in 1970. The 2011 movie Zoolander was filmed there.

The Stone Zoo is 26 acres in Stoneham, MA with 797 animals, and 87 species. It was founded in 1905 as the Middlesex Fells Zoo, a small collection of local animals that soon began to include more exotic species.

The Kiddy Zoo opened in the 1950s, and in the 1960s went through major renovations. It was renamed the Walter D. Stone Memorial Zoo in 1969. In 1990, state budget cuts closed the zoo but it reopened again in 1992.

In the early 2000s, Zoo New England began a fund-raising campaign to renovate the Stone Zoo and the Franklin Park Zoo.
