Celebrate Father's Day with a trip to the zoo and dad will get in for free.

Roger Williams Park Zoo announced that dads and granddads can head to the zoo for free this Father's Day when accompanied by a paying child.

That's a pretty sweet deal, pay for one kids ticket, get one adult in for free.

And the zoo is definitely a great place to spend the day.

With over 100 animals, a brand new rainforest building plus the big backyard for playing the day away, there will be plenty to keep the kids and dads busy this Sunday June 16.

The zoo will be open on Father's Day from 10 a.m. - 5 p.m. and tickets are $17.95 for adults, $15.95 for seniors over 62 and $12.95 for kids 2 - 12. Any child under two is free.

So if you've been wondering what to do with dad this Father's Day, maybe plan a day at the zoo.

Better yet have dad take the kids to Roger Williams and you can hang home and enjoy some 'me time' mom.

The Natural History Museum inside Roger Williams Park is also offering free admission for dads this Sunday, so you could see lots of different things while you explore this Providence park over the weekend.
