Reviewed By ffdjp78 - Tiverton, Rhode Island

Timeless and historic. Enjoy a few rides on this 1895 carousel and try for the gold ring. This place is magical! Take a picnic lunch along and head across the street to Rose Larisa Park for an excellent water view. Or enjoy the Blount Clam Shack in the grounds near the parking lot.

Rocky Point State Park

Reviewed By Julie and Paul C - Dunnellon, Florida

Great place for walking, picnics, biking, flying kites. Outdoor fun. We enjoyed a walk with our dogs and laid out a blanket to have a picnic. Played with the dogs a little more and then walked around again. Nice breeze off the Narragansett Bay with beautiful views, fun watching the boats and birds. Wear comfortable walking shoes or sandals for the beach.
Miss the old Amusement park. Oh such memories I have.

Located amid 40 acres of beautiful woodlands, the Roger Williams Park Zoo provides visitors the opportunity to see animals from all over the globe – some more than a million years old. Naturalistic surroundings are home to more than 100 species of animals including a Komodo dragon, as well as zebras, red pandas, African elephants, Masai giraffes, snow leopards, bears, flamingoes, sloths, and more! Kids from two to 102 have the opportunity to feed giraffes and harbor seals, as well as an array of farmyard animals. For something slightly out of the ordinary, visit our new Explore and Soar area offering an exhilarating zip ride, a train excursion through the woodlands, and camel rides. The Zoo is an accredited member of the Association of Zoos and Aquariums (AZA), and is home to many endangered species. As a result, the Zoo participates in cooperative conservation and breeding programs to help ensure the future survival of many endangered species.

This is one of our favorite family day trips in New England. Beautiful grounds surrounding the zoo and within. Exhibits for the animals are very large and acclimated to what each animal needs. Staff is extremely friendly and there is something for everyone. Feeding the giraffes is a must stop and do!
