We are pleased to offer a pass to the Zoo in Forest Park in Springfield, Massachusetts. This zoo features over 200 exotic and domestic animals. Dedicated to wildlife education, the zoo provides educational programs for children and adults.
The pass allows free admission for 5 people and a small discount on a train ride through the park. It does not cover the parking fee for the park ($5.00, cash only).
Wallingford residents may reserve museum passes 30 days in advance, either in person, online, or by phone at (203)265-6754. Nonresidents may borrow passes on the day they wish to use them.
