Summerfield Zoo is home to a large variety of exotic animals, ranging from reindeer and monkeys to camels and mountain lions! We are an up close and personal zoo with lots of opportunities for interaction with almost 200 mammals, birds and reptiles, endangered and threatened species. We have fun, educational Animal Encounter Shows everyday.
Most of the other services offered year round – field trips, birthday parties, on site parties or gatherings other days and off site educational programs!
