This winter wonderland attracts thousands of visitors each year who get into the holiday spirit by strolling along tree-lined paths lit by thousands of twinkling lights. Upon entering the Zoo, guests will visit Yukon Creek, which not only features dazzling holiday lights but is also home to bald eagles, porcupines, lynx, a gray fox and reindeer. Children will want to make sure they visit with Santa, who awaits their arrival in Santa’s Castle. Jolly Old St. Nick will be available for photos through Dec. 23. After visiting with Santa, enter a magical holiday world filled with fairy tale characters and dancing plush animals. Say “hello” to the two new reindeer! Thanksgiving ’til Dec. 30th.

Looking for a Unique Holiday Gift Idea?

20091104_ZOO_0011Support your favorite Zoo animal! For just $49.99, you can “Zoodopt” an animal at Franklin Park Zoo or Stone Zoo.

Each year, the Zoos spend hundreds of thousands of dollars on hay, grain, produce and other special diets to feed our animals. By purchasing a Zoodoption, you are helping us defray some of these costs. Proceeds from Zoo New England’s Zoodoption program help provide the highest quality food and care for the animals that call our Zoos home.

In addition to contributing towards the care of our animals, Zoodoptions make unique, thoughtful gifts for friends, family and animal lovers alike!

Visit the “Zoo Store” link on for more info on how to order!
