One of the oldest zoos in the country, Roger Williams Park Zoo is located in Providence, RI amid a beautiful, 40-acre park setting.
Party for the Planet
This April vacation, don’t miss out on Party for the Planet, presented by National Grid. Families will travel the world, as we explore the different regions featured in the Zoo.
Tuesday's celebration will focus on Tropical America, with activities taking place from 11am - 3pm. Join us to learn about the animals here at the Zoo from this region and all about its exciting and vibrant cultures.
Preview of Seasonal Offerings
During April Vacation, Zoo visitors can preview seasonal offerings! Traverse a beautifully landscaped greenhouse full of free-flying butterflies in the Flutterby: Butterflies in Bloom exhibit, test your climbing skills on the rock wall, or have an up-close animal experience with our camel rides. The butterfly exhibit and rock wall will close on April 26, and re-open later in the season, but camel rides are available until September 7.
Matschie's Tree Kangaroo Month
To celebrate the completion of their new exhibit in the Australasia building, the Zoo has deemed April as Matschie's Tree Kangaroo Month! The Zoo's two female tree kangaroos, LaRoo and her daughter Holly, are now well acclimated to their naturalistic enclosure, and are ready for visitors.
Throughout the month of April, we will feature tree kangaroo Keeper Talks in the Australasia building each Wed. and Sat. at 2pm, and docents will be stationed at the exhibit to answer questions about this highly endangered species each Fri. and Sat. from 11:30am - 12 noon.
