Providence, R.I. – Roger Williams Park Zoo is ringing in the New Year by offering a special Winter Wonder Days discount of half-priced admission from January through February 2016. During this time visitors can enjoy a winter visit with the animals for just $7.50 for adults, $6.50 for seniors (62+) and $4.95 for children (ages 2 – 12). RWP Zoo members and children age one and younger are always free. The Zoo is open New Year’s Eve and New Year’s Day.
A winter visit to the Zoo offers a unique experience and a great way to beat cabin fever. Cold-hardy animals like snow leopards, red pandas, bison and others may be more active, while visits to the Tropical America and Australasia buildings, and the Textron Elephant & Giraffe Pavilion offer a break from winter weather. Visitors can enjoy hot food and beverages at the Wilderness Café in the upper area of the Zoo.

As of January 1, 2016, Zoo admission prices before the Winter Wonder Days discount are $14.95 for adults, $12.95 for seniors (ages 62+), $9.95 for children (ages 2 – 12), and children age one and younger are admitted for free.
