Very expansive park on the South side of Providence. The park has multiple different attractions within it's own borders including a museum, a zoo, several memorials, and more. Definitely a must see during a stop in Providence, but it helps to know how much the park has to offer before going.

Roger Williams Park is small (approximately 4 acres) and pleasant. Within the park, you'll find Roger Williams National Memorial site -- a tribute to Roger Williams, the founder of Providence and an ardent early advocate for religious freedom. The park also offers a great view of the State Capitol building.

I have to say that between Roger Williams park and the zoo... This was a very nice place to spend the day while in providence. The auto path goes around for a good ways and either biking or walking is encouraged. The Zoo was a lot of fun with our grandson. A lot to do and a day well spent.... More

The zoo is great and the animal exhibits are easily accessible. We have young children and what keeps us coming back is actually the play area. A great place for kids to explore. Sometimes we barely make it to the animal exhibits.

Roger William Park is an excellent place to visit all year round. The paddle boats are so much fun! A great place to unwind. Food trucks from all over the area come every Friday evening during the Summer an early Fall months!
