Small Zoo with a big heart.

It seems the locals LOVE this zoo and there is good reason. It's a nice place to wander around with kids without fear they will wander too far from you. There is a pretty strict... read more

It seems the locals LOVE this zoo and there is good reason. It's a nice place to wander around with kids without fear they will wander too far from you. There is a pretty strict boardwalk to follow around and see all of the animals. The animals seemed well cared for and the zookeepers seemed to be knowledgeable.

It's really a nice place but very small as far as zoos go. Limited animal environment displays but they do have a treetop line course and a lagoon with paddle boats and kayaks.

Brevard Zoo is one of the top 10 small zoos in the country for a good reason. It is the prettiest zoo I have been too. The aviary is my favorite because you can but a small cup of nectar for a few dollars and have small colorful birds land on you to eat it. If you're lucky the giraffes... More

This is one of the top rated zoos in the USA. The animals are in natural settings, you get up, close and personal. It is a great nature hike, my grown kids love the zipline. If you are in Melbourne, and you do not go here, you missed the best we have! We live here, have a membership and we... More

I love this zoo. I'm a huge animal fan and have been at zoos all over the country. For it's size it is a wonderful place. It has a splash park, petting zoo, aviary where you can feed the birds, kayak rides, and zip lining. Truly something for everyone aged 1-100. The animals are professionally and well-cared for and the... More

What a great place to spend a few hours with the family. You can go for just a short while or spend the day. I recommend annual passes.

We visited this zoo and it was totally fascinating. The Giraffe exhibit features a observation deck where you can feed the Giraffes. The zoo features a Butterfly enclosure, Parakeet feeding enclosure and so much more. The zoo also has a zip line to explore the zoo from the trees. Beautifully designed setting.

A great thing about this zoo is the entire zoo has a path system made of decking with railings, much of it overlooking the animals. Easy for keeping track of kids. Good variety of animals. Some of the exhibits were closed so we were a bit disappointed but I would return again.

This is a very interesting zoo, child friendly, well suited for young or old! The entire zoo is covered over by beautiful tree's too make your journey has comfortable as possible. It has the small-town feeling missing in some of the larger zoo's we have been to. Prices are very reasonable, bring, hat, water, sunscreen, repellent, shorts, and lunch. Allow... More
