I would have given the park a "very good" because it appeared to be well-maintained and the dock I sat on at Polo Lake was very charming, but I was very disturbed upon finding out that there was not a single person in the park that was able to assist a goose that had a fishing hook stuck in its...

The statues and buildings were beautiful, but there was litter everywhere. My 11 year son and I walked the park near the casino, and Roger Williams statue. We could see the grandeur the park had. We seen a pair of beautiful swans in the river. The statues were very well done and we learned a few things. However, we couldn't... More

A good place to walk. If you want entertainment, there are paddle boats, pony rides, a small train ride and a carousel. On Fridays after 5pm, you can dabble in the multitude of food trucks to satisfy your hunger or bring your own picnic basket to spread out as you listen to the free entertainment.

Roger Williams Park is a beautiful gem right in the middle of the capital city. It has lakes with wild ducks, geese, swans and turtles, a carousel and handicapped accessible playground for kids, walking trails, and a greenhouse with beautiful plants where you can also attend workshops. There is so much to do there, including the Pumpkin Spectacular every fall... More

We love to take our dog here. Plenty of room to take him for a walk and not feel crowded with other people. It's free. Kept pretty clean. Location is great. It's beautiful.

The park itself is free, spacious and very pleasant. The zoo has gone down hill in recent years and isn't worth the price of admission, but spending an afternoon in the park in general is a pleasure

The park is huge, but it has little signage. We parked the car somewhere on the road and went to the rosarium. The rose bushes were not taken good care of. There is a great gazebo, so we took very nice pictures there.
