Roger Williams Park Zoo is open free on Black Friday!

November 22, 2017

Roger Williams Park Zoo will offer free admission on Friday, November 24.  The Zoo family hopes that visitors will share the holiday spirit with the community by bringing non-perishable food items to benefit the Rhode Island Community Food Bank. Boxes for food items will be at the front gates of the Zoo.

“The purpose of opening the Zoo on Black Friday is to encourage everyone to get outside, enjoy the fresh air, and take time with family and friends to experience everything the Zoo has to offer,” said Dr. Jeremy Goodman, Zoo executive director. “Our Zoo is a wonderful place, no matter the weather, to enjoy being outside, visiting with interesting animals, and of course playing in Hasbro’s Our Big Backyard.”

Many of the animals at Roger Williams Park Zoo enjoy the cooler temperatures including the adorable red pandas, captivating snow leopards, and delightful moon bears all on the Marco Polo Trail.  Additionally, do not forget to stop by and visit with the red wolves who also enjoy the brisk temperatures.
