    Best Zoo in the Northeast! You can almost touch a giraffe! There's a super awesome tree fort with a little kid water play area. The park itself is awesome and beautiful too. Worth the long ride.

    Such a beautiful, affordable, educational way to spend the day! So many great animals and the staff is friendly and knowledgeable! We have an incredible time every visit!

    Very well laid out zoo. During October the zoo is decorated with Jack o lanterns to give it a very seasonal feel. Great children's area.

    A very new exciting part is the "nature swap" section to the zoo which is keeping the boy's wanting to come back every day for the rest of their summer... Not the worst thing for our junior explorers!

    Terrific zoo. Well laid out with a diverse range of wildlife and experiences. Great for families or couples at all times of the year. A wonderful community asset.

    http://www.rogerwilliamsparkzoo.org/jols/index.cfm The Great Jack-o-Lantern walk is full of great pumpkin art focused on a history theme. The wait is a bit long so bring something to entertain the fam

    A small but nice zoo in Providence. The most cool part is the petting zoo, all the goats there want to be petted 😉 loved it!

    I saw many more animals around this time than any other zoo in Boston. Not too big. The tropical section building where the bats are smells a lot.

    The zoo is mildly depressing. Small pens, little stimulation for the animals. The kids will love the Hasbro tree house! No big cats, no polar bears. Try Southwick's!

    Always travel with extra bread on hand to stop by and feed the geese. Not all RI parks allow you to feed the wildlife. Good, cheap fun...

    The pumpkin spectacular was cool, but chaotic. Parents not controlling their kids,people not following the rules, people openly smoking... truly tragic. Worth most of the struggle.

    seems like they have more stuff than animals half of the exhibit are empty so much room for more animals much rather go to buttonwood, Franklin, and south wick at least they have monkey, lions, tigers

    If you bring bread to feed the geese don't throw the empty bag on the ground when you're done! I saw a duck get one wrapped around itself and it drowned. Pick up your trash.

    The Jack-o-Lantern Spectacular is very impressive if you have never seen it. Bring something to keep the kids entertained in line prior to the event.

    The geese are very gentle and can be hand fed bread. Please do not leave your trash behind. Teach your children well.
