About Roger Williams Park Zoo

Families with kids will always find an adventure at Roger Williams Park Zoo!

With over 100 rare and fascinating species from around the planet, visitors will get to pet an armadillo, see New England’s only Komodo dragon, experience an exhilarating zip ride, and so much more! The best part is, that with each visit you support the Zoo’s ongoing animal care, education programs, and conservation initiatives.

For more than 150 years, the Zoo has connected people with wildlife to inspire a love and appreciation for the environment and its animals. There is so much to enjoy at the zoo, from hands-on Wild Connections animal encounters to exploring the natural world through interactive educational programs, each moment tells a story and creates memories that last a lifetime.

Besides the awesome animal species, varied programs, and events, you can also visit the Carousel Village!
