Roger Williams Park Zoo in Providence, RI
In June 2018, this popular zoo kicked off "Rise and Play," a sensory-friendly morning-programs series held on the first Tuesday of each month from August to November within a section of the zoo known as Hasbro's Our Big Backyard. Children and adults can spend an hour in nature by carrying out activities that range from building mud pies and climbing a treehouse to taking in the outdoor splendor. This playtime also features a large-scale building toy that serves as an imaginative playground where visitors can construct tall towers and ramps and perhaps design cities at their own pace. Also, near the zoo in Roger Williams Park, the Carousel Village holds "Sensory Friendly Days" on the first Tuesday of each month from April through October, which means there will be no music or indoor lights.
