Thank you to everyone who visited the zoo this year! We will re-open in April 2015.

Reserve your 2014 Group Trip to Southwick’s Zoo Today!

Have you seen our new cotton top tamarins? They are one of the many amazing and beautiful animals here at Southwick’s Zoo.

Southwick’s Zoo is “Hotspot” for Field Trips and Groups! Field trips here are the perfect way to see (and learn about) some incredible animals in a large, safe, and fun environment.
