Had a nice visit, enjoyed seeing and interacting with the animals until we got yelled at for feeding our 2 babies food we brought in (apple sauce, goldfish crackers and Vienna sausages) and not the junk food (nachos, candy, ect)they sell there at the concession stand (the 4 adults did buy hot pretzels, ice cream and drinks).

Wednesdays and Thursdays are discounted so we decided to venture over to Summerfield Zoo. The staff was very knowledgable about the animals and I liked that they rescue most of the animals. Definitely make time to watch a presentation, which is also hands on. Presentation is part of zoo admittance fee.

Summerfield Zoo is not huge, but they do have a wide variety of animals. Children can view animals easily as it is not super crowded. They do several "shows" each day. It was nice because we got to hear about a variety of animals, and most animals were brought around for children to pet and view up close. Summerfield Zoo... More

They have a nice variety of animals......reindeer, wolves, goats, horses, peacocks, geese, prairie dogs, llamas, hyena, pot-bellied pig, monkeys, rabbits, and a lot more that I'm sure I'm forgetting. Many of them are rescue animals. They had a half hour presentation where they brought... More
