A Fun-Filled Day at Buttonwood Park Zoo
This post is sponsored by Fidelity & MEFA. All views expressed are that of our own. #UFundDreams
Last Friday, my kids and I took a break from the stress of moving and headed to New Bedford, MA to Buttonwood Park Zoo. It was Free Fun Friday and we all got in free but had the option to donate to the zoo to help the animals.
One of the sponsors for last week’s event was the MEFA U.Fund Dream Tour whom we are officially partnering with again this year. For more than 30 years, the MEFA has been helping families like ours to save for college expenses ahead of time through their MEFA U.Fund College Investing Plan 529 accounts . Their experts work with families like mine to easily save for their child’s future education expenses.
There was a financial expert on site during this event that was able to answer any questions that families may have had. The actual tent was so fun too! There was a sheep game, fun photo ops, and a photo booth that made a GIF of my kid’s pictures. It was super cute! They also gave out bookmarks which were really cute little space guys!

Now back to the zoo trip!
The kids were ready to have fun and explore the newly re-designed park. We had not visited for over a year, so the new Rainforest, River, and Reefs conservation-based center was so fun to explore.
Boy, did we have a blast checking out all the amazing sea creatures, exotic monkey species, and sea horses. Never did I ever think I would see a pregnant male seahorse–I guess I can check that off my bucketlist…haha!
We also got to see black bears, a fox, opossum, Atlantic Harbor Seals, a cougar, bobcat, elephants and more!
You can find the full list of Buttonwood Park Zoo animals on their official site here.
One thing I really appreciate about Buttonwood Park zoo is that they are so dedicated to helping kids learn about wildlife preservation, and caring for animals.
I love that the zoo is smaller and super accommodating to young families. The zoo keepers and exhibit crew were so gentle and loved teaching my children about species like starfish.
After exploring, we headed to the cafe and gift shop to check out the snacks.
The kids had popcorn, and I was able to snag a coffee before the ride home.
