We stopped here after leaving the central city area on the way back to our hotel. Very large park with nice open expanses. Worth a relaxing stop.

I took the kids to Roger Williams Park one afternoon while we were in Providence and my husband was in training for business. It was not hard to find the park itself but once in the park I found it interesting to navigate. The signage is not fantastic and I missed the playground we were looking for once and had... More

This is a beautiful park with lots of activities to do for any group age. There is a Zoo, a Botanical Garden, the Carousel, Childrens' Playground, Swan Rides, Museum and an enormous park. We went there with our 15 month old, during a visit in Providence and has such a great peaceful time. Our babygirl played for a while, then... More

Best time to go is in the fall when the leaves are changing. Amazing colors? Pack a picnic lunch and sit at a park bench or picnic table and enjoy the views and quiet.

There's a lot to do in this park: walking, a carousel, botanical gardens, swan boats. You could spend all day in this park and not be bored. There are signs directing you to various activities within the park, which is helpful. My boyfriend and I went on the swan boats, which were great, although you couldn't drop off the boat... More

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

I enjoyed this park. It was very clean and there was a lot to do. Went to the museum and it was very interesting then went to the zoo after that and loved that. If you're ever around the area I recommend visiting!
