This place is gorgeous year-round. Being right near the zoo is very convenient. There are tons of activities, you can spend the whole day there while spending very little money.

There seems to be no doubt that Roger Williams is a legend around Providence so it is only fitting I guess that a very large park be named in his honour. On the day of our visit the park was covered in thick snow but...More

Not all that much to see here--a pretty park, with a few monuments noting where historic artifacts used to be. All the same, nice to pass through if you're in the area.

Great place to take family to explore the zoo, park and picnic areas. The park offers a great walking and bike route.

Thought this would be more interesting as it is a state park but the monument that was in the park is no longer there, just a park with a gift shop that was closed.
