This is an Excellent zoo ! There are several different areas inside the zoo, and each of them are presented exceptionally well. Grounds are kept clean and inviting. Guests can get up close and personal with many of the animals. We first visited on our own as two seniors, then came back next year with our son, daughter-in-law, and granddaughter.... More

We visited Brevard for an afternoon. The zoo is just perfect for children 12 and under or adults who want to roam around a "jungle" for a bit. There is a wading pool for the small kids and they were really enjoying splashing around. There are several snack bars but the wait is slow. Just not an efficient set up.... More

The Brevard Zoo is one of the best zoos around, and is expanding all of the time. There are many varieties of animals, some you can feed, some you can pet, and some you will love watching. I absolutely recommend this Zoo to children and adults, alike!

We've been to this zoo many times. This is by far the most entertaining that we've been to, and the habitats for the animals is great. My 4 year old son loves to feed the giraffes. The membership fees are reasonable, and give you discounted access to other zoos around the country.

The Brevard Zoo is ranked among the top 10 in the Country. The best time to go is from October to May. It is very hot and humid in the Summer. This is a well run zoo with something for all ages. I highly recommend it to families.

The fall is a perfect time to visit. The weather was wonderful to spend about 3 hours exploring. Really impressive set up, very natural and low impact. Lots of up close encounters. The bird aviary is outstanding with lots of friendly and informed staff and volunteers to guide and inform.
