One of the oldest zoos in the country, Roger Williams Park Zoo is located in Providence, RI amid a beautiful, 40-acre park setting.
Preview of Seasonal Offerings
There are two days left for Zoo visitors to 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.
Mom's Day Weekend
Show mom a wild time at the Zoo this Mother's Day! Moms will enjoy free admission on Saturday and Sunday, May 9th and 10th when attending with a paying child.
