Animals on Branch at Roger Williams Park Zoo Rainforest

Roger Williams Park Zoo

Providence's Roger Williams Park Zoo & Carousel Village is one of Rhode Island’s most adored attractions. Explore this beautifully landscaped 40-acre zoo — one of the nation’s oldest — and find African elephants, Masai giraffes, zebras, red pandas, snow leopards, moon bears, a Komodo dragon and more in naturalistic settings.

Don't miss the Explore & Soar area, where you'll find camel rides, the Woodlands Express train, and for the slightly more adventurous, the Soaring Eagle Zip Ride. Get up close with giraffes, harbor seals and even armadillos, during one of the zoo's Animal Encounters. The Alex and Ani Farmyard, a family favorite, allows visitors to interact with a variety of farm animals, as well as try their hand at some farm life activities. Little ones also love Hasbro’s Our Big Backyard, a nature play and exploration area.

In addition to the zoo, Roger Williams Park is home to Carousel Village, featuring a historic carousel, pony rides and the Carousel Express train. Seasonally, Carousel Village hosts Food Truck Fridays, with trucks serving up tasty treats, including tacos, grilled cheese, Korean barbecue and more.
