This is a wonderful zoo. They have recently added a few more animals and attractions. My kids really enjoy everything it has to offer. You can get really close with the animals and there are always zoo keepers around to answer questions.

Southwick is a great zoo with opportunities to get up close and personal with many different animals. There are wonderful educators that give talks and answer questions. There are also rides (don't miss the train and the elephant ride!). You can buy food there, or bring your own. A bit pricey, but you can download coupons directly from their website.

Southwick Zoo was a great field trip. There were plenty of animals to look at with information available on each. There was a petting zoo with goats and chickens. We even got to see a goat that was due to have a baby any minute! There is a small train that will take you around the park where you will see various habitats and take a little break from walking. Or just to have the opportunity to ride a train. :) It is spacious with areas of sun and shade and definitely to occupy the kids for a day.
