What a great day of fun for the entire family!!! I took my 2 sons ages 14 yrs. and 3 yrs. old and they both had a great day!!! My 14 yr. old had been several times before, but it'd been a while since we'd been, so it was like a new experience for us. And it WAS a new... More

I really enjoyed my visit to this "user friendly" zoo. The scale is very "doable" in a reasonable amount of time. It centers mainly on African and Australian species and puts you very close to them. The Meerkat Hamlet is a huge attraction and is right near the entrance. Since it is quite small by comparison to the a REALLY... More

We come from Michigan & have gone to the Detroit Zoo a bunch as well as the Toledo Zoo. This place beats both by far. Yeah they don't have lions or tigers but they have a Cheetah & Jaguar! The exhibits are natural & it's really like walking a nature trail. Super cool! We went on a beautiful sunny day... More

They pack a lot of animals and environment in a small space. The zoo is broken into different areas and the areas are circular in style. You see everything in an area, move to the central path and continue on to the next area. We enjoyed the kayak tour of the river and recommend it as a different way to... More

I've always been the type to visit all sorts of zoos. I love seeing animals and what relates to nature. Brevard Zoo has all kinds of scenery to enjoy. The animals are beautiful and so full of life. There are feeding options (I love feeding the little birds in the birdhouse). There are a few signs here and there with... More

I grew up near the Toledo (Ohio) Zoo and thought it was a great zoo, but this zoo is much better, even though it's much smaller and doesn't have any lions, tigers nor bears. The only con was the admission price. Parking was free. Everything is outdoors, so don't go if it rains or looks like rain. You'll walk along... More

Approximately twenty years old, this zoo has grown like Topsy, with exhibits of both native and exotic species, and education programs to boot. Very popular with residents and visitors alike. Exceptionally good giraffe exhibit, where visitors can stand on a platform for up close & personal, eyeball to eyeball interactions with the giraffes. Good African section generally. Kayak and upper... More
