I think this is a great zoo for small children. Not much walking and the staff has children working with the animals too. The show was great as we had the opportunity to see the animals up close. We were able to pet some unusual animals too, such as a baby camel with a soft head. There are also inexpensive pony rides and the ability to feed goats. Since the goats jump, I had to hold my granddaughter and feed them but we loved the experience. We loved the staff/volunteers too!

The paths are mostly gravel so wear gym shoes. The goats like to jump on you so wear clothes that you don't mind getting muddy. :) It is a great time!

Our five year old granddaughter enjoyed the animal program and the pony ride.

Very cute little zoo. Staff was very friendly and the animals were wonderful. The layout of the zoo is very family friendly, especially for little ones. I think my children's favorite part was feeding grass to the horses and getting to pet them.

Great place for younger kids. My 2 and 1 year olds loved it. Extra to feed the goats ( $1 for food, $4 for a small bottle), and pony rides ($4). But it goes to a good cause. Reasonably priced for a fun day. Easy to get around with a double stroller

Check ahead for any special animal demonstrations and photo opportunities. They are small but what they do is awesome and deserving of a visit and donations.

I was impressed with the fact that something like this is so close to home. The amount of animals that are there are quite good for a relatively small area. It's definitely worth checking out!

Summerfield Zoo is a great zoo for the Rockford-Belvidere area. I've taken family and friends to the zoo and we always have a great time. We love the animal presentations and all the animals. It's fun to look for the animals (fox, bobcat, etc.) in their cages and talk to them. I definitely recommend Summerfield Zoo to future visitors.

From Our Editors

In 1990, the owners of Summerfield Farm set aside part of their grounds and turned it into a zoo. Since then, they have introduced countless visitors to some 200- plus animals: monkeys, camels, zebras, and mountain lions, just to name a few. While Summerfield offers a unique, intimate viewing experience to guests across its 17-acre facility, the staff also showcases up-close interactions during animal encounter presentations. Summerfield Zoo also has a petting zoo, and visitors can ride ponies and feed baby goats with bottles.
