  • My wife and I drove here from our hotel in Warwick. The park was not too difficult to find but it was more difficult to find our way around within the park. Once we finally found a place to park, we d...  read more »
  • We went there with our 2 nieces. Lots for them to do and safe too. Enjoyable day out, with facilities too. 
  • 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.
  • Great zoo. Decent variety of animals. It's kid friendly (which is a good or bad thing depending on your perspective). Takes about 2 and a half hours to see everything at a reasonable pace.
  • This zoo is very nice and I really enjoyed all the animal exhibits. When we went, some of the specialty exhibits were closed down for cleaning/maintenance, but other than that, I was able to enjoy all the other major animals. I didn't try any of the food options, but they had a few decent ones available. Worth checking out if you are within driving distance!
  • I have a special place in my heart for this zoo. It's fun, has great staff, and changes over the years. The October jack o lantern show is famous. I actually skip it due to lines and enjoy the zoo for regular days and seeing animals. Perfect size, big enough to stay interesting and small enough to cover in one visit.
