This Picturesque Rhode Island Park And Zoo Used To Be A Swamp But Now It’s Amazing

We have many beautiful parks in Rhode Island, but that wasn’t always the case. Slater Park, the oldest park in the Ocean State was once just swamp and farmland. Today it is a picturesque spot where you can enjoy beautiful ponds, trails, and even a small zoo.

We’re aware that these uncertain times are limiting many aspects of life as we all practice social and physical distancing. While we’re continuing to feature destinations that make our state wonderful, we don’t expect or encourage you to go check them out immediately. We believe that supporting local attractions is important now more than ever and we hope our articles inspire your future adventures! And on that note, please nominate your favorite local business that could use some love right now: https://www.onlyinyourstate.com/nominate/
