On Saturday, May 10th, the Black Bear Express was officially open for train rides at New Bedford’s Buttonwood Park Zoo. The new train also has a working smokestack that kids will love.

The train runs daily from 9:00am-5:00pm. Train rides are $2 per ride (1 ticket) and all proceeds from the Black Bear Express 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.
