VISITED OCTOBER 2020
CURRENTLY CLOSED FOR THE WINTER – WILL OPEN AGAIN IN SPRING 2021
When we first arrived in Western Massachusetts, I immediately started making a list of things to do with Akaash. Visiting the Forest Park Zoo was at the top of the list. This is a fantastic little zoo.
We came here during the week, and even though it was required to buy our tickets in advance, I actually bought them from my phone on the way to Zoo because I had completely forgotten until that moment to buy them in advance! (Don’t worry, I pulled over to buy the tickets!)
When we arrived there was plenty of parking right outside the entrance to the zoo. We started our stroll and quickly realized this is a small zoo! But that’s okay. Actually, it was great for my mom, who came with us, who was able to utilize the benches around the zoo to take short rests.
I’m excited for this Zoo to open back up in the Spring so we can visit again!
Stroller friendly: 5/5
Comfortable coming by myself: 5/5 I would definitely bring Akaash here on my own
Tickets: check the website, we did need to buy our tickets in advanced
Parking: There is a small parking lot right next to the Zoo entrance
