Roger Williams Zoo is thrilled to announce the zoo’s re-opening in phases beginning June 1!

As they welcome guests back there are some guidelines to follow to keep everyone safe. During this temporary phased reopening, your Zoo journey may look a little different. Watch this video to see what safety measures we have put into place to ensure your next visit is a happy and safe experience.

What’s Open, What’s Not?

It is our mission to create engaging experiences that empower guests to join us in conserving wildlife and wild places. You are a part of our mission and your safety, the safety of our team members, and the safety of the animals are our number-one priority.
