My husband, adult son and I visited this zoo while on vacation and enjoyed it tremendously! Prices were very reasonable- $16.95 for adults, $12.95 for children ages 2-12. There were many excellent animal exhibits as well as a really neat area designed for young children with a large wading pool, sand box, climbing equipment and children's activities. We had intended... More

A little small and pricey, but nice. Seeing the leopard and giraffes up close was pretty cool. The deer were also awesome.

This place is a really great place to bring children to, there is a petting zoo, a place they can burn off some calories near the petting zoo ( a big tree fort) and plenty of "critters" to look at. Make sure you see the giraffe's and get to the Australian section and check out (and feed) the parrots and... More

If visiting Florida with your children, be sure to visit the Brevard Zoo. The animals are kept in their natural habitat. It is a very clean and well maintained zoo. There are many interactive opportunities for children. There is a nice petting zoo, a big tree fort and a small water park, with some interesting elements, like a whale slide... More

There's a lot to do here but make sure that if you go there near closing that you go to the right if you have kids. There is a bunch or activities for them to do but close at 4 and you will miss out if you go to the left.

Our main purpose was not to visit the zoo itself but to accept the zip line obstacle course challenge. At least that is what my daughter and 8 year old grandson did while the old man relaxed elsewhere. The course might be rated as military quality with some parts requiring a combination of zip lining, rope climbing, and other challenges.... More

Cool refreshments were nice on a hot Summer evening! More of a family outing with my daughter, sister & niece than a meet & greet w/ the animals.

This county Zoo is well maintained and a wonderful addition to the local area. If you haven't visited (or better yet... joined) this attraction I highly recommend you give it a shot. It isn't the San Diego Zoo, but we are real proud of it.

I went there with my family and 4 kids from 11 down to 5 and we all had a great time! Walking along the wooden pathways and lanes makes you feel in direct touch with Mother Nature, the view of the animals is incredible. The children fed the animals and they enjoyed doing so. We all had lunch at the... More

This zoo had a few animals I have never heard of before. It was fun, nice exhibits, lovely educational signage thruout. It felt organic with all the vegetation.
