Just Read What Our Clients Have to Say...

Everyone at the Roger Williams Park Zoo truly went above and beyond to make our event a success - - it was absolutely flawless!  We have received nothing but compliments from our guests about the evening - - the set-up, the scavenger hunt, the friendly staff, the food - - it couldn’t have been better!
From the day we started planning, they made the whole process easy.  We’re so glad we chose to have our event at the Zoo and would definitely go back there again!
Chris - ASTRA Toy Company

Planning our event at Roger Williams Park Zoo couldn’t have been easier. Both the Sales and Catering departments went out of their way to make our event a great success. Our employees and their families thoroughly enjoyed the warm summer evening from the animal encounters to the BBQ dinner to spending quality time with co-workers.

I just wanted to say thanks again for everything on Saturday.  Day 1 of feedback is very positive, everyone seemed to have a great time!  Everything worked out with the food, animal encounters, the zoo itself, and even the weather cooperated.  You guys made me and Jason look good! We look forward to the possibility of working with you in the future…only having many more people!
