A convenient family attraction located on Hwy 98 between Gulf Breeze and Navarre, Fl. Exceptional set up for a medium size attraction that will thrill the young and young at heart. Not so big that you will be dragging the kids back into the parking lot after a strenuous day. Great size park for a leisurely afternoon stroll and fun... More

We took three of our grandchildren for a day trip to the Gulf Breeze Zoo. We all enjoyed our visit. We found the park very clean and the animals appeared be to well cared for. My granddaughters really enjoyed the Parakeet exhibit and feeding the giraffes. We took a chance and had lunch there. The food was vey good and... More

We went there over the holidays with our five grandchildren (three and under) and thoroughly enjoyed the Zoo Lights. The biggest hit (for the adults, too!) was playing in the "bubble snow". The variety of the light displays was impressive. Don't plan to see many animals at night, however! The children could still feed the goats and sheep but the... More

Our family was in Florida to attend a family funeral. When traveling with small children one has to give them some fun time. Our 17 year old son and our 5 year old granddaughter had a blast! Lots of interaction with the animals, it was clean and the animals were very well cared for. What a wonderful way to spend... More

Visited the Gulf Breeze Zoo while on vacation. Had a very nice visit. It is a smaller zoo, but the enclosures and animals were well cared for. My advice is to buy a budgie stick to feed the parakeets. It was fun and reminded me of the pet budgies we had when I was a child and with my children.

Love this zoo. Great place to go with the family. You can feed the animals and pet the barn animals. The zoo is beautiful and very nice. The workers are great and really take care of the animals. They will answer any questions you have. Always have a wonderful time when I go here. Also went to the zoo light... More

I love going to the zoo but not this one. I've moved from bigger cities and seemed to get more out of them. I was gonna get an annual pass for me and the little one but it seemed to much. It has a great train, animals and parking. Try it out and you decide.

Although not as big or perfectly "manicured" as other big city Zoo's, the Gulf Breeze Zoo does a great job of getting people up close and personal to a variety of animals. (Isn't that what a zoo is suppose to do?) My favorite attractions are feeding the Giraffes (and various farm animals), taking a ride on the Train and feeding... More

This is the best time of the year to go by the zoo. First because the weather is perfect to walk around and second because of all the lights they put out for Christmas. The staff is always friendly and it's a lot of fun feeding the animals!

Best zoo we have ever been to. Got to get up close to large animals, hand fed many, including giraffe's! Going in the Budgee bird enclosure was so thrilling. Birds landed on our arms, shoulders, hands and even on my phone while taking pictures. The zoo was very clean & animal enclosures very roomy.
