Although this is not a large zoo, it is a wonderful experience. It is set among the trees, which makes it a pleasant no matter what the weather. We visited on one of the hottest days of the summer, but shade from the tall trees kept us relatively cool. My kids enjoyed the variety of animals. The smaller size of the zoo kept us close to the animals. The highlight of the trip for them, though, was the Red Bat.

Southwick's is the perfect zoo for kids. It has many different kinds of animals, but it is not overwhelming. The deer forest is fun to walk through -- the deer eat right out of your hand. The habitats have greatly improved. A good day trip. Don't forget to see "the Red Bat"

Southwick Zoo is located in Mendon Mass which is a bit of a hike from me but well worth the drive. We took the kids here this past summer and really enjoyed ourselves. The grounds are well maintained and this is a pretty decent sized too. With not just animals but some rides for the kids, this place is like no other zoo I have ever visited. Admission can get a bit high depending on how many people you are bringing but, I was able to find discount coupons. Overall I would rate this as a great place to check out and a neat experience for the kids.

This is a wonderful zoo to bring you kids too. There is a lot to see and do and the kids will have a blast. They seem to add new stuff every year and each time we go back, it's better then it was before. I consider this zoo up to par with the larger area zoos and having it so close is a huge bonus. I highly recommend it, it's worth the trip!

Southwick Zoo is one of the nicest places I have ever been. The have a huge selection of animals and the grounds and exhibits are always very well maintained. The park is very clean and the animals habitats are appropriate with plenty of space for them to move around. They are constantly working on expanding and making things nicer. The zoo is not government funded so therefore all the money they take in goes directly to the zoo and the care of the animals. They also have wonderful educational programs.

PROS: fantastic experience all around
CONS: none
