I am having some confusion on Roger Williams Park (botanical garden, greenhouses) and the RW Zoo. I want to visit the botanical gardens, rose gardens, grounds and greenhouses but am not too interested in the zoo part. The official web site is all combined and mostly talks about visiting the zoo but barely mentions the garden portion.
So can anyone answer these questions:
1) To visit what I'm lookin for do you just go to the zoo entrance and pay the entrance fee and go in?
2) or is the park and gardens portion free (and only a charge if you visit the Zoo?)
And is there a better place to park? Any better web site than the official one?
Any help or clarification would be appreciated!
