Great staycation! The zoo is a great get-away! It has all kinds of adorable animals, critters and it is beautiful. I wish that it was bigger so that you could spend more time there; however, it is what it is and we have to be grateful for what we have in this area. Great day!

It's a typical small zoo. We did the zip line tour (a different company) nearby while our teenagers zip lined. Then quickly went through after their tour. They were pretty wiped out from the heat and didn't want to see much. I could see this being a good option if you have small children and want to do something that... More

Our group ages ranged from 11 to 66 years old and everyone enjoyed their time at the zoo. We missed the petting zoo, so we hope to make it next time, as well as the splash zone for kids. It was very hot when we went in the middle of the day in June. I would recommend going earlier in... More

Terrific regional zoo. Well laid out, well kept and cleverly set up. Nice selection of animals ranging from little furry creatures to Hippo's and Giraffes. Very clean and a great place to take kids.

I've live in Brevard for over a decade and had never been to the zoo until the other day. Skeptical, I joined some friends and was surprised. For a small zoo it's really nice. We had a great time. Admission isn't too steep. Feed the giraffes, it was a great time.

Brevard Zoo is so beautiful and unique, while not the biggest zoo around it is so special. The habitats are all natural and very few of the animals are enclosed behind glass which lead to many opportunities to be able to touch and feed them . The zoo is ever changing and expanding so going back frequently is not boring.... More

Too packed with people, your typical Florida animals here. We went in May and it was too packed, and too hot.

I've been to some of the worlds most renowned zoo's. This is a small zoo with family and young children attractions. some are interaction birds, small animals etc. and there were a few larger animals .. alligators, etc.. Overall it is a good experience and worth the time, money , and effort. DJ

I had my 8 year old nephew and hubby along and was expecting that in the summer heat many animals would be hard to see. We were delighted that the rhinos were close and the giraffes stayed near the feeding station where visitors could purchase and feed lettuce to them. The funnest exhibit for my nephew was watching the Meerkats... More
