Beautiful Park.

The park is vast and you can picnic or just walk through the grounds. There is a concession stand, a merry-gp-round, a water feature, a zoo, many things to do here.

I was here for a wedding and was disappointed. You would think they would cut the grass and weed knowing being a place like this. There were weeds growing thru rose bushes, trash in grass and it just dodnt look as vibrant as pictures on website made it.

Even if you don't want to visit the zoo, go to the park anyway. The grounds are just beautiful. There's a great carousel, a beautiful Japanese garden, eve pony rides. There is also paddle boats available for rent on the pond, a butterfly exhibit (check website for hours), botanical gardens and more. On a warm day, you can enjoy a... More

Whether you go to ride in a swan boat, walk among beautiful gardens, visit the zoo or hop a ride on the carousel, you can always find something interesting at the park. What a treasure for the people of Rhode Island. Our Zoo Membership got the whole family including grandparents into acres of interest and fun. The elephants were bathed... More

The park was bigger than I realized, which was good. Lots of places to get out and relax. Plenty of parking. Beautiful flowers and trees in bloom. The Japanese Gardens with the bridges was my favorite area. It was very relaxing. I enjoyed watching the geese and other wild birds wander and fly about. This is also a good place... More

This property was originally owned by the Massasoit Indian Nation. Rodger Williams had such a good and fair relationship with them that they insisted on giving him the land. It remained in his family until the death of the last member who willed the property to the city. It has an amazing array of activities for all ages and interests.... More

Roger Williams Park is a gem. There are seasonal flower gardens, a tropical greenhouse, a top notch zoo, a pond, a carousel, and great clay tennis courts. There is plenty of parking all about the park. There is a fee for the zoo and the tennis courts. Tip: Make sure you secure valuables out of view in your car.
