Franklin Park Zoo

At Franklin Park Zoo, children and adults alike can experience hundreds of exotic animal species from around the world right in the middle of Boston! Explore the wonders of a tropical rainforest, the Australian outback, or the African savannah in one of these exhibit areas.

Exhibits include the Tropical Forest, an innovative and intimate indoor gorilla exhibit, and the Giraffe Savannah, home to the zoo's Masai giraffes, Beau and Jana. The overlook of Kalahari Kingdom offers views of an African lion, while the Serengeti Crossing houses ostrich, zebras and wildebeests. See the tigers at Tiger Tales, pet the farm animals at Franklin Farm and get a taste of Australia at the Outback Trail. Don't miss Bird's World and Butterfly Landing, too!
