About Roger Williams Park Zoo

“In 1872, Roger Williams Park Zoo, the country’s third oldest Zoo, opened its doors to the public with a collection of small animal exhibits within the newly formed Roger Williams Park in the heart of Providence.

Today, located amid 40 acres of beautiful woodlands, the Roger Williams Park Zoo provides visitors the opportunity to see animals from all over the globe – some species more than a million years old. Each year approximately 800,000 visitors from across the state—and even around the world—enjoy the Zoo’s amazing animals, nationally recognized events, and award-winning educational programs. The Zoo’s naturalistic surroundings are home to more than 160 species of animals including a Komodo dragon, African elephants, zebras, red pandas, Masai giraffes, snow leopards, bears, anteaters, flamingoes, sloths, and more!

Kids from two to 102 have the opportunity to feed giraffes and an array of farmyard animals. For something slightly out of the ordinary, visitors can enjoy our Explore and Soar area and experience an exhilarating zip ride and a train excursion through the woodlands.

Roger Williams Park Zoo is an accredited member of the Association of Zoos and Aquariums (AZA), American Humane certified, and is home to many endangered species. Our accreditation is assurance that visitors are supporting a facility dedicated to providing excellent care for animals, a great experience for guests, and a better future for all living things. This includes our participation in cooperative conservation and breeding programs to help ensure the future survival of many endangered species.”
