Founded by Robert W. Commerford over 40 years ago, we here at the Commerford Zoo love bringing our animals and rides out to meet you!
A Bit of Our History
It all began with some simple horse buying and selling, but soon we were showing up at local county fairs with rides and parade costumes on. Since then we've added elephants, camels, ponies, kangaroos, and other exotic animals to our family. To keep you entertained while our animals rest, we've also got a super-slide, carousel, and other fun rides. With all that we've created our own fun-fair!
Apparently walking around the neighborhood with an elephant attracts the attention of the newspapers! You can read some of the press we've gotten, and about some of the events we've been part of:
- US tastes Indian wedding spectaculars - BBC (July 1, 2008)
- Groom Turns Heads With an Elephant of an Entrance - Washington Post (June 15, 2008)
- Elephant trumpets couple's big day in Hamilton - Gloucester Times (September 2, 2007)
- Need a Zebra? Or Perhaps a Camel Will Do? - New York Times (June 7, 1992)
