Roger Williams Park Zoo

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, anteaters, flamingoes, sloths, alligators, and more!  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 TTOR is a non-profit land conservation and historic pre-servation organization dedicated to preserving natural and historical places in the Commonwealth of Massachusetts.  It is the oldest regional land trust in the world.  The trustees of Reservations own title to 116 properties on 27,000 acres in Massachusetts - all of which are open to the public; it maintains conservation restrictions on 200 more properties.  Properties include historic mansions, estates, and gardens; woodland preserves; waterfalls; mountain peaks; wetlands and riverways; coastal bluffs, beaches, and barrier islands; farmland and CSA projects; and archaeological sites.
