Small well run zoo,with a passionate volunteer staff who are all kind and knowledgable. Excellent grounds and the animals seem very well cared for. The kayak tour was awesome. I'd highly recommend stopping here for a few hours of up close animal experiences!

So many new things to do at the Zoo! The zip line, canoe rides, train ride, and I love the butterfly aviary! You'll like the giraffes, too!

We have a membership to our Brevard Zoo and visit often. Every time we go we remind ourselves how lucky Brevard County is to have such a great zoo in our backyards. There is a diverse group of animals in clean and comfortable habitats. The meerkats exhibit is very entertaining and one could spend hours watching their antics.

A nice zoo where all the animals are taken care of very well. My kids especially enjoy the splash pool. It's a perfect setting.

This is a great small zoo to spend a couple of hours. It is definitely not comparable to larger zoos with exotic animals, but for Melbourne it is very nice. The giraffes are the star attraction and now there is also zip lining and an aerial adventure. Over all a great place for young children.

We took a day trip over to check the place out and were not disappointed. The zoo is a little older but has some pretty unique animals and experiences that are worth checking out if you like zoos. They have a Kayak option for $8.00 for a 20 min. Kayak around a little river running through parts of the African... More

My 2 nephews and niece came to visit me from Ohio. They were 12, 14, and 16. They enjoyed the zoo especially feeding the giraffe and birds. Nice small zoo that you can easily see everything in a day.
