about Buttonwood Park Zoo:
With just a couple of exceptions, all of the animals carry out the Zoo's theme, "From the Berkshires to the Sea." The focus is on the land- and water-based wildlife of Massachusetts, with special emphasis on creating the natural habitats in which the animals actually live.
The Buttonwood Park Wildlife Carousel features a chariot and 18 animals, many of which can be found in the zoo, such as the Asian elephant, seal and eagle. Tickets are $2.
Zoo Crew is a summer program designed especially for children ages 8 to 12. Each session has been developed to have a balance of outdoor and classroom learning, educational games and activities, crafts, and fun.
