I only rated this one star because I had to choose something! It was HORRIBLE!!! I purchased 2 adult tickets and 2 children's tickets which was ridiculously priced for this zoo. All the animals were sleeping and the ones that we could see the glass...More

Education-wise, really a good job - well-thought-out signs and background info on the animals, but the animals themselves just looked so sad in their tiny enclosures.We were puzzled by the amount of room the mountain goats and the wolves had in contrast to the big...More

Stone Zoo is not very big, but well kept and the animals seem very well cared for. It's a great place to stroll around on a nice day and interact some with nature.

I visited the zoo with my daughter and 2 year old granddaughter. It was the perfect size for the little one. Just enough of animals to keep the small children occupied. My granddaughter loved the flamingos and seeing the bears. There were only two bears...More

I didn't plan to visit a ZOO, but as it was on my way through Fells Reservation I got curious and entered. I was done in 30 minutes and it was definitely not worth it entrance fee. They don't have too many animals, which would...More
