About Roger Williams Park Zoo

Roger Williams Park Zoo is one of the oldest zoos in the entire country, so it has certainly given a LOT of children an unforgettable day out!

Roger Williams Park Zoo is set on 40 amazing acres in Providence. There are about 130 species of weird, wonderful and rare animals from all across the world!

Spend the morning with the sweet elephants. Enjoy lunch in front of the playful gibbons. Take some photos of the moon bears and watch the kangaroos hop along as fast as they can!

All of the animals are housed in naturalistic settings, which means those little animal lovers can really study the behaviors of these amazing creatures, just as they would do in the wild. An invaluable learning experience!

The Roger Williams Park Zoo also has a number of fun exhibits that the children love! They can live like a local farmer at the Alex and Ani Farmyard, which is a replica of a typical Rhode Island commercial farm. Kids can enjoy activities like the "milking station" and "egg collection station".

The Big Backyard gives those little adventurers a new kind of nature play area, with the ultimate outdoor play space! The whole family can explore the animals native to North America, and Australasia, and observe native wildlife in the most endangered habitat. An important lesson for kids to learn all about what is happening with our species on their 1/4 mile walk.

Animals, education, fun, playtime and exploration - yes please! And it's all at Roger Williams Park Zoo!
