Zoo New England is participating in the 8th annual Free Fun Fridays program sponsored by the Highland Street Foundation! The Program includes museums and cultural venues across Massachusetts. Beginning June 24 through August 26, eight venues will be open free-of-charge every Friday. Franklin Park Zoo will only be offering free admission on Friday, August 26

Additional details and schedule

Free Fun Friday is an increasingly popular event, and we have experienced record attendance in previous years. We're expecting equally high attendance this year, so please plan your visit accordingly!

Parking is free (though lots fill quickly). 

Free Fun Friday is a rain or shine event. Because of the rain some of our exhibits, including Butterfly Landing, Aussie Aviary, and Giraffe Savannah may remain closed throughout the day.
