BELVIDERE, Ill. — Belvidere’s Summerfield Zoo has announced its 2013 Opening Weekend for April 27-28.

Summerfield Zoo is open 10 a.m.-5 p.m., Saturday April 27, and 11 a.m.-4 p.m., Sunday April 28. Admission is $8 per adult, $6 per senior and $5 per child, with all proceeds going to the care of all the animals, many of which are rescue animals.

Yvette McGreane, volunteer at Summerfield Zoo, said: “We have everything from A(alligator) to Z (zebra)! We also have everything in between, including mountain lions, hyena, wolves, monkeys and much more! There is always something new going on at Summerfield Zoo, and with all the new babies at this time of year, now is a great time to come out and see them for yourself. It’s also a great chance to see what you have been missing if you haven’t been here.”

Enjoy animal presentations, pony rides, the petting zoo, Carmen’s Café and Prancer’s gift shop all while at the zoo.

Summerfield Zoo specializes in providing an up-close and personal animal experience for the whole family. As a small zoo, visitors can get up close and meet many of the animals.
