We loved everything about this zoo. Active animals, nice layout, great hands on kids play section, small crowds and free parking!
Great fun!

I went to Roger Williams Zoo on a field trip with my third grade class. We had a great time. I loved watching the elephants and the giraffs the best. It was also fun to see the red panda. We had a nice time having a picnic lunch and even got to ride the carousel. It was definely a great place to visit!

The zoo is a bit expensive but the money is supporting the animals which there is a good range of. My favorite is the red panda who always looks so happy.

Hours are a bit limited, but still a good time. Maybe a bit overpriced too, but since it supports the animals, I am alright with that. Plenty of zebras, giraffes and elephants and they do an excellent job of providing views to make sure you see all of the animals.
