We visited in Fall with my daughter and grandkids, and spent a wonderful 5 hours viewing exotic animals and having a picnic lunch.

Roger Williams Park Zoo is one of the oldest in nation, opened in 1872.  It is hosts exhibits of over 100 animal species from all over the world.  It’s extremely clean.  There are family-friendly rest rooms for changing infants – we even brought my baby granddaughter along !
