This zoo is always adding new animals and new exhibits. Nice small zoo for families. Several areas to feed animals.

It was beautiful and loved the setup of it but there aren't very many animals at all. I won't pay to go back. Walked through it in less than an hour.

The Brevard Zoo is a surprising place to explore. A lot of beautiful habitats and not too huge to walk around. Just beware of school groups, may want to call ahead and see what is booked that day.

It was fine nothing special, but we were with couple of old folks and they had fun. Kids liked it too. But, look overhead and Tree Track Zip line course is what I like.

My family and I visited the Brevard Zoo yesterday and had an outstanding time. Several of the exhibits are close enough that the animals come right up to receive treats. I spent more money on feeding the animals throughout the park than we spent for entry and lunch on ourselves. Staff and volunteers were helpful as well, willing to answer... More

I really enjoyed visiting the Brevard Zoo! I took the advice of several reviewers and arrived soon after opening time. If you are kayaking or zip lining it would also be a good idea to do those activities first. I was prepared for rain and saw most of the exhibits before the showers started. One of the employees told me... More

Been to a lot of zoos. This one is just average. Overpriced and nickel and dimed for everything. Animals were hard to see if they were out at all. Train ride was super boring.

Love the fact that everything is spread out so it never feels crowded. The staff is always very nice and accommodating.

We decided to go to the zoo for fun, and bought the wild explorers package. It was well worth the money because we were able to have zoo admission, feed giraffes, go kayaking, and feed birds. The animals were adorable and the staff was more than helpful. However, if you are going on a very hot day I suggest bringing... More

We were having some stress during our vacation, and decided to stop at the zoo for some R&R. This zoo turned out to be the highlight of our week. We really loved seeing the different animals, especially the giraffes. I still go through my photos from that day to revisit the happy memories. The alligator presentation was very interesting, and... More
