Family Overnight at Roger Williams Park Zoo

Presented by Roger Williams Park Zoo at Roger Williams Park Zoo


Snooze at the Zoo for the wildest family overnight adventure in town! The night begins with pizza and ice cream before educators engage you and your child(ren) in hands-on activities, program animal encounters, and a Zoo tour by flashlight. Set up your sleeping bags in the Meller-Danforth Education Center, watch a movie, and snack on some popcorn before falling off to sleep. You’ll need your zzz’s before waking up with the animals! A light breakfast will be provided before a morning Zoo tour.
