TESTIMONIAL: 

"As a resident of Springfield, my family has become regular visitors of The Forest Park Zoo. My 10 year old son started at Zoo Camp three summers ago, and it was definitely a great decision for my family. My son has discovered a love for all types of animals, he has learned a lot, and has not complained of a boring day yet. I also have to say the staff is great. They are very helpful to my husband and I, and show patience and attention to our son. I have to tell you that if my child had a choice, he would spend everyday visiting The Zoo. Thank you all for spending days with the Twining family." - Frances Twining | Springfield, MA
