Providence, RI - In response to public interest, Roger Williams Park Zoo will keep its doors open late every Saturday in August. Guests will have a chance to enjoy animal exhibits and the new Hasbro's Our Big Backyard exhibit during the magical (and cooler) twilight hours. Zoo Admissions will be open from 9 am to 8 pm, with the Zoo closing at 9 pm, August 4, 11, 18, and 25. Regular Zoo admission applies.


Roger Williams Park Zoo, one of the oldest in the nation, is Rhode Island's number one outdoor family and tourist attraction, and is also a
leader in conservation efforts undertaken by a zoo of its size. The Zoo has received numerous awards for environmental education, and
conservation work done locally and around the world, caring for species that without human intervention would face certain extinction.
Roger Williams Park Zoo is supported and managed by the Rhode Island Zoological Society and is owned by the City of Providence.
