One of the oldest zoos in the country, Roger Williams Park Zoo is located in Providence, RI amid a beautiful, 40-acre park setting.
Weekend Animal Encounters
Share the unforgettable thrill of a close-up animal experience with your family! Feed a giraffe or a seal on weekends in September. Online ticket purchase is now available! If the tickets don’t sell out online, they will also be available at the Zoo admissions gate on the day of your visit, but space is very limited.
Day of Honor
The Zoo salutes the men and women who serve our nation and communities with a special Day of Honor, with free admission for veterans and members of our armed forces, active and retired police, fire and ambulance personnel, and emergency responders, as well as half price admission for up to three guests.
NEW: Alex and Ani Farmyard
The Alex and Ani Farmyard is open! Kids can play in the milking and egg collection stations allowing them to step into a farmer's shoes, and the Contact Yard immerses them among different species of goats to foster a stronger bond with the natural world. Other animals include barn owls, Guinea hogs, alpacas, and Willy the miniature donkey.
