I am a photographer and love taking wedding pictures here. This is a great place to walk with kids and feed the ducks, go to the zoo, take a stroll on the duck paddle boats, exercise, or just take in nature.

It's a great stress reliever. Whenever I used to feel sad, I would come here amidst nature and lakes and relax. It's beautiful in suffer and winter time. In winters the lake freezes and it's an awesome experience.

Very expansive park on the South side of Providence. The park has multiple different attractions within it's own borders including a museum, a zoo, several memorials, and more. Definitely a must see during a stop in Providence, but it helps to know how much the park has to offer before going.

Roger Williams Park is small (approximately 4 acres) and pleasant. Within the park, you'll find Roger Williams National Memorial site -- a tribute to Roger Williams, the founder of Providence and an ardent early advocate for religious freedom. The park also offers a great view of the State Capitol building.

I have to say that between Roger Williams park and the zoo... This was a very nice place to spend the day while in providence. The auto path goes around for a good ways and either biking or walking is encouraged. The Zoo was a lot of fun with our grandson. A lot to do and a day well spent.... More
