  • Very pretty with lakes, a carousel and even a zoo. They really need a small visitor center and a place with maps, etc. 
  • Did the 5km (3 mile) walk around the main lakes area on a blustery Sunday. A slow stroll taking photos took under 2 hours. Beautiful foliage and interesting sculpture dotted around. The museum is an i...  more »
  • Nice park, has potential to be a lot better. Sometimes it gets pretty dirty with trash on the sides of sidewalks. The Japanese garden would be amazing if they cleaned the water and kept it clean.

  • The Roger Williams Park Zoo is a great Providence Attraction. It is small enough that you can run through it in less than an hour but interactive enough that you can spend half a day there. I have a 3 year old and a 6 year and we go once a month. I let them pray freely which means we can do 30 minutes at the petting zoo or breeze by it .and then spend time in the children's water park or play in the treehouse. Regardless, the Roger Williams Park Zoo is a great place to spend time with family!
  • Awesome zoo. The elephants and giraffes are always fun. There's a good variety of animals close enough it's reasonable to see almost everything in one visit. Giraffe feeding is a hit with the kids, just make sure to get in line early. Costs $5/person. There's a few activities going on every day that are free (like ones with elephants) and add-ons (like bird/giraffe feeding) going on. Main food court is typical zoo so may want to pack your own or eat before/after.
  • Want to go to the Zoo? Botanical center? Carousel? Casino? Maybe have some boating adventures on the 100 acres of ponds? Maybe you want to just sit in the grass and have a picnic or walk the many paths and trails and enjoy the sounds of nature. You can tour the rose gardens and enjoy the many public sculptures. Take the kids (or yourselves) to the museum of natural history and planetarium. Enjoy a concert or other events at the Temple to Music, participate in benefit walks for various causes, Pride celebrations, baseball games, kids & adults playing football or frisbee, tennis, running & power walking. There is no shortage of activity whether in groups or just by yourself to clear your head and be at peace. For 125 years folks have enjoyed the 435 acres that is Roger Williams Park. Since the park is 5 minutes from home I enjoy these many pleasures regularly year round. Even if it is snowing and 25 degrees, grab a sled or some ski's or just grab your dog and enjoy the open space.
  • Fun zoo. Plenty of little areas for kids to play! Can see the elephants getting a bath, feed the giraffes in summer, play on a pretend Farm with a petting zoo, a seasonal splash pad, walking path, and so much more! Probably need a solid 2-3 hours to visit here, feel free to pack a picnic, little areas to have lunches are around! Busy in the summer and not too bad other times
  • Jack-o-lantern spectacular was a horrible experience. Paid a good amount of money for my family to be mushed through by a mob of people stomping over each other to take pictures. Neither of my children was able to enjoy the scenery because they were too busy avoiding being trampled by inconsiderate people. The event should be much more kid friendly, and perhaps a fairer price along with a extra charge for photography for all the zombies who only want to see it through their phones. I would've gave half a star if I could to be honest...
