The Playhouse is returning to its old location for the 2013 season! (No longer at the Shattuck Picnic Grove)
The fences are down and the Playhouse is back by the Playstead and back entrance to the Zoo.
If traveling by car, drive down Circuit Drive (the main road through Franklin Park) and exit onto Pierpont Road towards the back entrance to the Zoo. Look for signs! The stage will be on your left and there is plenty of parking available. There is also a dirt parking lot located on Circuit Drive next to Pierpont road across from the golf course.
If traveling by public transportation, take the Orange Line to Green Street. Exit the station and turn right. Walk down Green Street, cross Washington Street, and walk up the hill into the park. Green Street turns into Glen Road. Follow Glen Road into the park and stay on the paved pathway until you see the Playhouse stage. The #16 bus also travels through Franklin Park on Circuit Drive and stops directly across from the Playhouse stage.
