Summertown was originally conceived as a retreat from the hot temperatures of summer months for the populace of Adelaide  (hence Summer Town), this is still the case today with a variety of Bed and Breakfast style accommodation located throughout the area.
The town also boasts its own netball/tennis courts located at the Tregarthen recreational reserve, as well as a Chocolate factory, institute and the district Country Fire Service station protecting the Uraidla and Summertown community from fire.
