We were looking for something to do while visiting family in the area and decided the zoo was a great idea especially with our 2 year old grandson. We enjoyed the time we spend at the zoo. It is summer time so some of the animals were not out so you could see them as it was hot. We really... More

This zoo is nice... it has a lot of things to keep you busy for easy 3 hours. The giraffe exhibit is amazing! The only bummer was no zebras or anything (my kids love those), but they have zip line and a water park. The train is an absolute downfall!!! You pay to go super slow, and go in one... More

What a wonderful job they have done with the Brevard Zoo. We had never been and went on a Sunday. We have friends that volunteer there and they had been telling us how much they thought we would enjoy it. Our children are grown and gone but we went to many wonderful zoos when they were young. I loved everything... More

This zoo is perfect for everyone, especially for families. It's not too large, but it has a wonderful collection of wild and unusual animals such as the giant anteater, white rhinoceros, lemurs, a rock python, impalas, crocodiles, gator, and a great aviary with the most amazing birds. There are butterflies and fantastic monkeys. The price is very affordable and even... More

My husband and I took my 80 yr old mother with us while on vacation in FL. We heeded the TA advice and arrived when zoo opened. Very good advice since August is soooo hot. I have never seen so many interactive things at a zoo. ... feeding lorikeets, cockatiels, giraffes, treetop zip line or walkways, kayak trips, paddle boats,... More

I have been to a lot of zoos and I cannot escape the feeling that all the animals look depressed and miserable and out of their element. Brevard zoo takes you to a jungle-like surrounding that transports you to many of the animal's natural habitats. You walk along a wood boardwalk under tall tropical trees and foliage and you can't...

Very nice small zoo. We took my elderly parents and had a great time. Wheelchair rental was easy and helped make my Mother's day more enjoyable. Train ride was short but a nice chance to sit and see some different areas. They have a new meerkat exhibit and who doesn't love meerkats? Lots of different species in well maintained, properly...
