The Roger Williams Park Zoo this week revealed its 20-year master plan to renovate the zoo in three phases.
Last year voters approved a bond that set aside $15 million to cover the cost of the zoo renovation’s first phase. Each phase, which will add new exhibitions, will cost $25 million. The first phase will include a new rain forest building and a new education center. The old education center will be repurposed to a reptile house, the first one in New England, said Roger Williams Park Zoo Executive Director Jeremy Goodman.
