Boston’s zoo is located in Franklin Park, the largest city park, about 6 miles south of city center. The zoo may not be world-class, but it’s fine for a family outing. Warthogs and wildebeest live in the area called Serengeti Crossing; the lion and tiger live in Kalahari Kingdom. There’s a large, appealing playground. The biggest stink is made about the giant Corpse flowers, which may or may not bloom in a given year. The stench they give off is unbearable but the experience is unforgettable. The closest subway stop is almost 2 miles away on the opposite site of the park, so we recommend driving (there’s free parking) or taking a cab. The entrance is on the far eastern side of the park.
