On May 10th, a new Zoo Train was commissioned at the Buttonwood Park Zoo! Our new Wattman Electric Train will provide all the fun and excitement that our guests currently receive with each train ride, but with a few more bells and whistles – for real! The new train also has a working smokestack!
Train rides are $2 per ride (1 ticket). All proceeds from the Train and Wildlife Carousel go to support educational programming and family events funded by the Buttonwood Park Zoological Society. Please call (508) 991-4556 x 14 for more information. All tickets are sold in the North Woods Gift Store.
Please Note: all rides are weather permitting.
Thank you to MGN Family Foundation, Fred Smialek, Henry & Marion Wainer, and Tim & Melissa Walsh, for their contributions to the Black Bear Express.
The Black Bear Express is closed for the winter.
Please check back in the spring for the return of the Black Bear Express.
