The Capron Park Zoo is a great place to bring the entire family. This zoo is a small park with plenty of animals to see.
The river otters offer plenty of entertainment with their tricks and performances that they seem to do endlessly!
As you walk the paths through the zoo you will encounter African Lions, llamas, goats, sloth bears, snow leopards, binturang, snakes, fox, birds, kangaroos, emu and countless other animals.
It is a relatively small zoo, but it is perfect for younger children. Even with its small size there is still plenty to see. For the summer they set up a 'mist tent' for the kids to run through and play in to cool off.
This fun and exciting zero-depth water playground is sure to thrill children of all ages. Be sure to bring a bathing suit and towel for the maximum fun factor!
A snack stand is available for hot dogs, ice cream, popcorn and beverages. A gift shop is located in the entrance building.
Birthday parties and special events are available.
No outside food or drink admitted.
Also available around the outside of the zoo is a beautiful park with a large playground area for the kids!

- Visit the zoo first, plenty of areas for picnics before you enter (no food is allowed to be take into the zoo with you). After the zoo, by about mid afternoon the playground tends to clear out. Earlier in the day the playground tends to be extremely crowded.
Great Little ZooCapron Park Zoo is a great experience for children interested in animals and families. My 3 year old son and I have made several trips there in the last year and have had a great experience during each visit. The admission prices are very inexpensive, parking is free, and the property is small enough that it almost does not require a stroller for older toddlers and preschoolers. There is a unique variety of animals and they are all in clean, well-kept, updated enclosures. It is great go to a small zoo and find animals that look happy and healthy in their environments. Highlights include the new white lion exhibit, the sun bears, and the otters. There is also a snack bar for food, a small gift shop near the entrance and a great playground just outside the gates for before or after your visit to the zoo. This zoo is only about 45 minutes from the metro Boston area and is a great way to spend part of a day with your family!
Quite A PlaceIt is a gem. The most interesting animals so close up.
Excellent ValueWhen I saw the price of admission I decided to check this place out. It was a great place to take my 3 year old. The amount of animals was quite impressive. Plenty to see and very exciting even for parents. After you finish with the zoo you can go play at the big playground just outside of the zoo. Definately worth the cost and the drive. Great weekend family outing or playdate!
Great Little ZooWhat a great little place. So many unusual animals.
Rain ForestThe new Rain Forest is terrific!
Up Close And PersonalAnimals we have never seen before. Closer than we have ever been. Hands on experience. The grand kids love it.
Small Zoo Big FunA small zoo but many unusual animals. Bigger zoos have more, large animals, but there you can get closer to them here at Capron Park.
Worth It For The Low Admissionnot a lot of animals to see....but it is cheap. the playground is great for the little ones to blow off some steam....lots of shade too.
