Large park

went for a walk and ended up going a lot further than planned. Hard to navigate. Some trash. Areas of shade as well as out in the open.

I visited the zoo for the Jack O Lantern festival. There were over 500 pumpkins carved and lit up. Awesome

This park is huge it would be a great place to bring your kids and spend the day wondering around the whole place. There are so many options around the area with the zoo, botanical garden, and museum as well as the water.

Roger Williams Park is a gem. The park has acres and acres of beautiful gentle rolling hills. It is fun to go sledding in the winter. Roger Williams Park Zoo is open year round. My favorite animals there are the elephants and the giraffes. Check out their website to see all that the park offers.

Roger Williams Park is on the southern end of Providence, easily accessible from I-95. It has a remarkable zoo, with an interestin collection of animals (polar bears, snow leopards, camels, giraffes and much more). There is a botanical garden with a collection of local plants, acres of green grass, miles of paths, and a carousel! What more could you want... More

The Roger Williams Park has delightful gardens, a boathouse that provides paddle swans for cruising the pond, a carousel for children, and a magnificent botanical garden. It's worth visiting in all seasons of the year, particularly when the rose gardens are in full flower.

This park has so much to offer... Beauty, photographs to be taken, a historical old graveyard, stuff for kids to do. I spent a full day here and didnt even feel like I saw half of what it had to offer.

Beautiful grounds include mature trees, waterways, and special plantings (including a great Japanese garden). The carousel is a must for kids of all ages, as are the paddleboats that are rented out and are reasonable.

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.
