Zoo!

In Recreation by Jef Nickerson4 Comments

Roger Williams Park Zoo

I went to Roger Williams Park Zoo with some of my family from the Cape, including my nieces (1 and 2 years old, their first visit). We had a great day, only had to duck under a roof for about 10 minutes to avoid some rain. We saw lots of animals and the girls were wonderful, only two bouts of crying (once for a banged head, and once for a skinned knee, valid crying reasons). I haven’t been to the zoo in years, what a great resource for us to have though.

The anteaters would not come out of their enclosure, boo! But we still got to see them through the glass.

The first Saturday of the month, which happens to be tomorrow, the zoo is FREE for Providence residents, so if you were looking for something to do tomorrow, there you go.

  1. WOW! I did not know the zoo was free on the first Saturday of the month. I know the botanical center is, but did not know about the zoo. Thanks for this info!!!!

  2. It’s only free for Providence residents and you need to prove you’re a resident with an ID or a utility bill.

  3. Yes, I qualify…. do you know of any other benefits of being a Providence Resident????

  4. Nope. that would be the only one.
