I love this zoo. I'm a huge animal fan and have been at zoos all over the country. For it's size it is a wonderful place. It has a splash park, petting zoo, aviary where you can feed the birds, kayak rides, and zip lining. Truly something for everyone aged 1-100. The animals are professionally and well-cared for and the... More

What a great place to spend a few hours with the family. You can go for just a short while or spend the day. I recommend annual passes.

We visited this zoo and it was totally fascinating. The Giraffe exhibit features a observation deck where you can feed the Giraffes. The zoo features a Butterfly enclosure, Parakeet feeding enclosure and so much more. The zoo also has a zip line to explore the zoo from the trees. Beautifully designed setting.

A great thing about this zoo is the entire zoo has a path system made of decking with railings, much of it overlooking the animals. Easy for keeping track of kids. Good variety of animals. Some of the exhibits were closed so we were a bit disappointed but I would return again.

This is a very interesting zoo, child friendly, well suited for young or old! The entire zoo is covered over by beautiful tree's too make your journey has comfortable as possible. It has the small-town feeling missing in some of the larger zoo's we have been to. Prices are very reasonable, bring, hat, water, sunscreen, repellent, shorts, and lunch. Allow... More

This is a beautiful zoo. The animals are in huge areas and very well taken care of. The boardwalks and trails are wheelchair accessible. We spent an afternoon there, even in the rain, it was fun. There are so many extra things you can do, animal encounters, kayaking, shows. Check out their schedules for times!

There were plenty of animals to see, yet this zoo was small enough to cover the whole zoo in a few hours. There was one place to order food, but it wasn't overly priced, and it tasted good. The train was a little disappointing (short), but I think it was more for little kids. We loved feeding the giraffes and... More

The Brevard Zoo does not have a huge stable of animals, but those that they do have, they seem to have invested in, to bring comfort and security to the animals, and enjoyment to the people. The variety of animals are necessarily slanted to tropical natives, though, they do range from around the world. The zoo has a main trail... More

The Brevard Zoo is a terrific experience- be sure to stop and feed the giraffes while you are here! The splash park area is great for younger children and an excellent way to cool off a bit in the Florida heat. Every time we visit the zoo, there is something new to enjoy. Well worth the admission price, especially if... More
