Welcome to Roger Williams Park Zoo!

All tickets are available online-only.  Visitors must choose a specific day and specific time slot, as visit capacity is limited.  The time slot is your arrival window (ex: if you choose 1 PM, you must arrive between 1 – 2 PM).  Once on grounds you may stay as long as you’d like during operating hours. 


Member Ticketing: Current Roger Williams Park Zoo members no longer need to reserve a timed ticket in advance - just show your digital membership card and a photo ID at any ticket booth for entry on the day of your visit. Timed-entry tickets are still required for non-members. 


Save now! Group discounts available: Groups with 10 or more paying guests SAVE!  You'll save $2 on each ticket type.  This discount will apply automatically when 10 or more paid tickets are added to your cart.

Additional General Admission ticket information:

  • All purchases are final, so please choose carefully - orders are not eligible for refunds, reschedules, and/or rainchecks. 
  • Discounts including military and reciprocal discounts must be purchased in-person. Please call the Zoo before visiting to ensure availability. Group and library discounts are available online. 
  • Last admission into the zoo is at 3:30 PM. If you are reserving tickets for the 2 PM timeslot, please plan to arrive as close to 2 PM as possible to ensure you can see the entire zoo (an average visit is 1.5 hours and some exhibits close at 3:30 PM, with the entire zoo closing at 4 PM).
  • A small non-refundable service fee is automatically charged to each order.
  • COVID regulations change frequently, visit our website for the latest masking and safety information.
  • Our zoo will proudly receive guests regardless of the forecast, so we encourage you to dress accordingly and have fun! 


A Note About Parking: We offer complimentary parking across 4 large lots. All parking is on a first-come, first-served basis.  Please note that lots can fill quickly on busy days and ticket purchases do not guarantee lot availability.  To avoid parking setbacks, you may want to consider ride share services or bussing on high-volume days.
