What a great zoo to visit and it didn't take up too much time to where you felt exhausted after you went. The only let down for me was there was no otters...which I found out was due to a death...I love otters and that is always a zoo visiting highlight.

This is the best zoo we have visited. There are animals everywhere. You don't have to wait for them to appear. We were able to feed a giraffe and birds. There are zip lines, boats and a train if you can't walk the entire distance. The food was reasonably priced. Great place to spend the afternoon.

We had a free afternoon and decided to visit the Brevard Zoo. It was just right for about 2-3 hours as we had time to see all we wanted to see. People who want to do the zip line or other activities will need more time. The place is nicely arranged with sections according to parts of the world or... More

This was such a fun stop during our vacation! We went on a saturday afternoon and the zoo wasn't too crowded thank goodness. It's mostly covered so even if its a hot day you'll be in the shade a lot. Outstanding zoo!

Great zoo that at first gives you the impression that it is just a small rinkie-dink zoo, but once your in you see that this is a really excellent zoo with lots of animals to see as well as animal encounters and interactions. Have been several times and as local Brevard resident the annual pass works out pretty nice.

the Brevard Zoo although small makes good use of its space. It has quite an assortment of various animals as well as a zip line that goes throughout the park. The animals are well treated and the staff are friendly. There is a petting zoo as well as to aviary where you can purchase nectar or seeds to feed the... More

I enjoyed my visit there very much! We saw all kinds of animals. My granddaughter loves giraffes. We tried to feed them several times but each time they came in and by the time we reached the cash register to purchase the cracker they had moved on back out to the fields. I didn't like that part of the visit.... More

We had a group of five adults and young teens and went on the Canopy Walk and the Zip Line at the Tree Top Trek. It was a great experience. A fee of the staff earned kudos and high praise for their great attitudes in helping some young adults overcome some fears. A man they call Nugget and anothrr man... More

We love going to zoos! This one is beautifully landscaped, and has interesting displays. There was only one animal that seemed stressed by his small enclosure - most animals seemed content and healthy, and most enclosures were of ample size. It was a bit expensive for its size, but we got in cheaply because we are members of our hometown... More
