Franklin Park Zoo is a wonderful place for the family to spend the day. It's a great meeting place for friends to get together. They have so many exhibits it can take all day to see everythiing. The new baby Gorilla is adorable, a must see. The butterfly garden is pretty nice...you can get some good ideas for your own. There is a petting zoo for the little ones and some great stuffed animals in the gift shop. They even have an adoption plan to help support the zoo... check it out it makes a great gift.
