Amazing adventures await when you visit the animals, and go on the rides, at this zoo

There’s always an amazing adventure to be had at the Roger Williams Park Zoo & Carousel Village. Watch elephants swimming in a waterhole (or getting a bath in the elephant and giraffe pavilion). Journey to the Amazon rainforest and interact with the hyacinth macaws inside the free-flight aviary. Watch giant anteaters playing in a pool, discover the secretive snow leopard, or see bison grazing. And walk among the farm animals in the Alex and Ani Farmyard Contact Yard. The zoo also is home to the exhilarating Soaring Eagle zip ride and the Woodlands Explorer train excursion, as well as Hasbro’s Our Big Backyard, and a nature play space. Have a made-to-order salad at Nourish 410, a burger at Tuskers or pizza at Slice.
