Roger Williams Carousel Park
What doesn't it have? Roger Williams Park has a great zoo which is just getting better with a new Wild Dog exhibit. It has Swan Paddle Boats - haven't attempted that one yet. There are Pony Rides and a cute little Choo Choo Train. There is a Carousel. But our new favorite activity has to be Hasbro's Boundless Playground. It is designed with special needs children in mind. The set-up is thoughtful and the activities are unique. My 19 month-old and her two buddies had a blast. Oh and on a beautiful day...it wasn't crowded!
I have taken my daughter (now 4) to this zoo and playground since she was 2 several times a year and she never gets tired of it. She loves the little dune buggy getting a snack. Visiting the giraffes and penguins are her favorite. I like the fact that the carousel (is big and open til 5 ) and playground are so close so she burn off some last energy for a long nap for the hour long ride home. Great park and zoo! Membership is worth every penny!
This zoo is the best one we've been to that's close to home (Central Mass). It's much better than Soutwicks - cleaner, flatter, better exhibits.
