This is a nice friendly smaller zoo. They have quite a few goats to feed, Reindeer, Horses, Camels, Zebra, and quite a few other animals. They have a show with 5 different animals in which the Zookeeper describes them and some animals are brought to everyone to touch.

Went there with my family for a quick first birthday trip for my daughter. It is a very nice and simple little farm/zoo to take small children to. Many of the animals are close up which is nice compared to a larger zoo. The staff was very friendly.

Went Thursday ($5 day) and it was great. This place is great for all ages. It is what seems like a farm a family turned into a zoo. Babies everywhere and the baby reindeer was too adorable. Even the Pigmy goats were too cute. The 'animal encounter' is not to be missed. The wolf pup was probably my favorite but... More

This is a really nice, clean local zoo with a wide variety of animals from domestic livestock to exotics. There's a lovely gift shop, lots of employees to make the experience complete. Like others, I disagree with being forced to purchase food, particularly if you are not able to eat what they provide or have small children. All in all... More

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). We spent well... More

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.

The kids were recently at Brookfield zoo and I told them before our visit to Summerfield zoo that this was going to be a smaller zoo. Knowing this, they were not disappointed. We went on a Wednesday and we all got in for $5 each. Then spent another $16 on 18 tickets. Tickets are used for the petting zoo (1),... More

We brought our animal loving two year old here. Many of their animals are rescues but there's quite a variety! Lemurs, bobcats, hyena, zebra, camel, monkeys, as well as reindeer and farm animals. They even had wolves with 4 week old pups. They're going to a zoo soon, so better hurry if you want to see them. We got to... More

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

My husband and I took our 7 year old son here a couple of weeks ago. 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
