Roger Williams Park

Angel Taveras, Mayor
Robert F. McMahon, Superintendent

Since the 1890's, Roger Williams Park has been the premier playground for both Providence and Rhode Island residents. Designed in 1874 by landscape architect Horace W.S. Cleveland, the entire park is listed on the National Register of Historic Places.

The park's 435 acres feature over 100 acres of ponds that weave their way throught the rolling landscape. The landscape includes specimen trees, the famous Rose Garden, and signficant outdoor public sculpture.

Major attractions include the nationally-recognized Roger Williams Park Zoo, the Museum of Natural History and Planetarium, the Botanical Center, the Casino, the Carousel Village, the Temple to Music, the Todd Morsilli tennis courts, and the Tim O'Neil baseball fields.

The park attracts over 1.5 million visitors a year and is the site for numerous walk-a-thons and festivals at the Temple to Music.

Please visit our pages (links on the right) for information about the Zoo, the Museum, the Botanical Center, the Carousel, and the Casino. If you would like to hold an event at the Park, see the Special Event Request Form link below.
