This is a great place to bring your family for a visit. The animal exhibits are awesome. They have a nocturnal house to see how these night time animals exist, a tropical rainforest, kangaroos and even a white lion. Bring the bathing suit for the kids as they have a splash pad for those hot summer days. There is also... More

Small zoo but very enjoyable especially for smaller children. The animal exhibits are very easy for kids to see the animals which is really nice. The splash pad is great so throw in a towel and bathing suit. There is a small changing area. Once done with the zoo, the playground just outside the entrance is also very fun. Enjoy!

Loved going to Capron Park as a child and continue to go back as an adult. Look forward to the additions they make every couple of years to keep things fresh at the zoo. They have always done great outreach in local elementary schools to keep people interested in zoology and animals in general. Recently they have added an albino... More

This is a nice little zoo that is near to Providence, not expensive, and suitable for children up to age 8 or so. Not stressful at all and we enjoyed it.

We loved the splash pad. The animals there are fun for the kids to look at and they have a great dark room for the nocturnal animals. Worth the yearly pass if you live close!!

This zoo is fun and not huge but there are lots of interesting animals. It's a great place to take small children up to age 12. There is a playground and picnic tables. The rest rooms are clean. We went in late April so it was quite chilly still and some of the animals didn't want to move around. They... More

I have been here several times and have always had a great time. This is a small zoo, though there are plenty of animals to see, some of which you di not see in other zoos. The fee is minimal for admission and given that the $ is to support it, we are happy to pay more. There is a... More

We went here on an unseasonably warm day in November and practically had the zoo to ourselves. The small size of the zoo was perfect for our 3 year old and she had a great day. We were able to spend as much time viewing the animals as we wanted without being in anyone's way. It was like we had... More
