The biggest attraction in Dorchester is the historic Franklin Park. It was built in 1911 and named after the famous patriot Benjamin Franklin. Franklin Park is a similar to the popular Boston Common, but a whole different experience. Franklin Park is not only over 400 acres, but also it houses several exciting places.
If you are strolling through Franklin Park with the family, there are several things to do. You could play ball on grass, visit the George Robert White Schoolboy Stadium, play a round of golf, or take a trip to the zoo. Thats right, Franklin Park is home to the Franklin Park Zoo!
This year, the zoo is celebrating 100 years of providing fun and inspiration to the community. It is home to many animals and incredible exhibits including The Tropical Forest, Giraffe Savannah, Kalahari Kingdom, Butterfly Landing and many more! The animals range from gorillas and giraffes to lions and tigers. But what if those stomachs start growling? Don’t worry – there are several places to eat right within the zoo! Visit the Giddy-Up Grill and the Kalahari Kitchen for some tasty treats. And don’t forget to stop by the gift shop on your way out!
So stop by Dorchester and visit Franklin Park – it’s fun for the whole family! Come visit the zoo, play some golf, go on a picnic, or play ball in Franklin Park’s vast expanses of green! And if you’re looking for a cool tasty treat on those hot summer days, Dorchester is no stranger to great ice cream. Check out The Ice Creamsmith or the Boston Ice Cream Factory!
