Fantastic day trip! We came from CT for the day, honestly not expecting much but got much more than we bargained for. Zoo was much bigger than anticipated, many animals available to see and all looked well kept after. We spent the better part of 4 hours here and the kids all loved it. Park under construction in places as it seems they are adding on. The zoo itself was tucked far back from the road so follow the signs, parking was good and rates were reasonable. Food was the biggest let down but i didn't expect much from park food so pack a lunch is my suggestion. Enjoy your visit, I know we did!

Had an awesome 4th of July visit. Love how clean and organized it is there. Some employees that really stood out were at the zip line, the guide outside the sea lion exhibit, and the lady with the dragon. The staff helps make this a wonderful visit as they were very friendly and alert to try and provide some extra knowledge for my young ones. The young lady getting ready for the Giraffe feeding yesterday was also quite funny while interacting with my father. These are the type of things that bring magic to a zoo. Very pleased with yesterday’s visit.

Overall this zoo is pretty good. It feels a bit smaller and more limited than the National zoo in Washington DC, which is a shame as that one is free, however, some of the opportunities at this zoo are excellent. I went to the penguin experience and it was both incredibly fun and cute, but also so educational. The zookeeper who ran the tour was funny, smart and very engaging. He was the second best part of the day. I would recommend this place to everyone and anyone anytime of the year

Very nice place to take the kids. Lots to see and do. The zoo, the carousel ride, the pony rides, zip lines, and a small train ride. Food choices were fine and they had Del's lemonade. Everything has a charge, but it is a great place. Bring your wallet!!

The Rodger Williams Zoo a logical part is a great way to spend the afternoon. The many exhibits full of healthy happy animals is great for the family or a couples date. The park is non-smoking which is great for the children and the animals. There are many snacks stands restrooms sodas to keep you hydrated and full. Conveniently located 10 minutes outside the city it's a must stop for any vacation or to the area. They are constantly expanding and adding new exhibits to continue their conservation and education promise.
