New Playground at Franklin Park Zoo to open this summer!

Visitors of Boston’s historic Franklin Park Zoo will soon have another attraction to visit in the 72-acres that make up the zoo. Construction has begun on a new innovative 10,000 sq. foot playground that is set to open by late June/early July. The new addition, made possible by the Play 2 Dream Foundation, puts safety first and will be created on a rubberized surface making it accessible for children of all abilities. Complete with an animal themed playground it will be built next to Butterfly Landing and is set to include a variety of slides and climbers, cognitive interactive play panels, swings, as well as shaded areas and benches and picnic tables for families.
