Franklin Park Zoo is a fun place to go because there is a ton of activities to do if you're bringing children. The activities may vary but if you look closely you can find different animal footprints to follow along the sidewalks. While I was here, I had a good time playing a makeshift detective game with my niece and nephew and having them try to figure out which foot prints belonged to which animals.
One of my favorite exhibits was the lion enclosure. While it wasn't anything entirely different from other zoos, Franklin Park Zoo had a safari style jeep that was built into the glass wall in which you can sit in it. Sitting in the jeep made it feel like you were in some sort of African safari driving among the lions (although the lions were just lounging around when we sat in the jeep).
If looking at animals is not your thing... you could also lounge around the food areas and eat things like hot dogs or dip and dots (idk why you'd opt to do this though). Either that, or you could play on the various animal themed jungle gyms around park.
