Lions are just the beginning. All sorts of animals, food, information, and playgrounds. If you have kids, it's a great place to bring the kids on the cheap and spend lots of time looking at all the animals!

My son is 6 and we have been to many of the larger zoos, we live in RI. He loves this zoo he gives me a guided tour, has names for all the animals and knows the zoo like the back of his hand. No rushing to see it all, more personal and relaxing. Clean folks are wonderful and the... More

This local treasure is well maintained, holds lots of special event (food truck night). It's a great place for the kids with a nice playground right outside.

This zoo is small, but we had a good time. We were in and out in about 2 hours, then played in the playground adjacent. There were a lot of animals in the small space, and my kids liked that we could just relax and watch the animals play instead of rushing to see everything. There is also a splash... More

This is a great little park. Wonderful place to take children and grandchildren. There's a nice zoo and playground for everyone. Lots of events during the summer. Pack a lunch take the kids and meet other like minded people. In summer they have music evenings in the park.

It is a nice zoo and through the years they have made a lot of improvements. They have a water area for small children in the summer. It's great for a family to spend a few hours.

The Zoo is a nice place to bring kids. It has a lot of animals to see and pet, yet it is compact enough to keep everyone in sight! It is located in Capron Park right off the main drag in Attleboro. It has LIONS! If you bring small children, make sure the Lions have been fed already! :)

I have always since childhood gone to this zoo. They have upgraded the zoo but still kept the same. There is a small water area for the kids and adults to play in and cool off on a hot summer day. They have a bird exhibit that is open so you see the bird up close and good for photos.... More

My fiance and I took his granddaughter there. He had been there before but I am new to the area and had never even heard of it. Wow I could not believe the variety of animals, as well as having a snack bar and a cool bridge over a pond. There was also a playground outside. I don't remember what... More
