Black Bear Express

On May 10th 2015, 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 114 for more information. All tickets are sold in the North Woods Gift Store.

Please Note: All rides are currently being operating on a daily basis – 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.
