Between zip lining and feeding giraffes, you will not get bored. So much to do and see. Birds landed on our heads while we fed them, we petted a baby alligator, fed giraffes and saw lots of interesting animals. Fun play area for younger children too.

I been going to the Brevard Zoo forever and it is one of THE BEST zoos out there! You can hand feed the giraffes, watch the otters play and swim in their pool, visit the rhinos and even interact with them, feed the rainbow lorikeets and cockatiels, and much much more! They also have the new meerkat exhibit where you... More

If you are on the Space Coast to visit the Kennedy Space Center or Cocoa Beach, don't hesitate to visit the Brevard Zoo. They are celebrating their 20th anniversary this year. I'm local so I have visited many times. This small zoo, founded by volunteer donations and help, is fun for all ages. There are many interactive features. For young... More

We travel to Cocoa Beach frequently and at least once a year we make the quick trip over to the zoo. We love this place. Just the right size and easy to see the animals. The new Meerkat exhibit is very well done. The zoo also appears to be a big part of the community including helping out with sick... More

Watch hungry Alligators await feeding when you walk past them overhead After watching the Otters splash about in their cool waterfall, ... how bout... More

Great family entertainment. We have annual family passes for years and go frequently. A new meerkat exhibit is great viewing. There is a water play area with one part set aside for toddlers. The children love it.

We had a really good time. Feeding the giraffe was the best. Thought it was a little expensive especially for the size. Want to go back and to treetop trek and see meerkats but probably not anytime soon because of price. I've been to zoos all over country and a lot are bigger and less expensive.

It's a small zoo, but there is a lot to do for kids (or adults) of all ages. If you go on a nice day make sure to bring the kids swim suits. They have a small pool area (think splashing, not swimming) that the kids love. They don't necessarily need a swim suit, but if you don't bring a... More
