Lots of animals to see, clean and well laid out zoo and if you have never fed a giraffe it is time to do it here.

The Brevard Zoo is well worth a visit. You would think for a smaller city/area like Melbourne/Viera that this zoo would be rather unimpressive... Wrong. There are animals from 6 continents, including kangaroos and giraffes. The viewing areas and living habitats are well kept and lush. It feels like you are walking through the jungle from each exhibit to one... More

Twin toddlers have enjoyed the wading pool, the garden, play area, sandbox, and discovery center. The zoo is well kept, clean and staff and volunteers alike are friendly. Eating options in the zoo are very limited, especially for those with allergies or dietary restrictions.

The Brevard Zoo is a great place to spend a day with family. It offers a lot of attractions yet it isn't so large that you can't get through it all.We usually spend a half day. They have many areas for small children to experience and enjoy. The Lagoon/Splash Kid Zone is great for cooling off. The Petting area is... More

Although it is quite hot in summer, there is plenty to do and explore at the Brevard Zoo. Suggest going early to beat the heat and visit giraffes for feeding! We bought zip line passes but could not go due to inclement weather, and we were granted passes to return again anytime! Despite the many school bus groups, there was... More

The brevard zoo keeps growing and has multiple exhibits but still remains small enough to see everything and take young children with a train and now zip lines it is a must if you visit brevard

Went and had after several tries (due to thunder warning) the kayak tour which our 8year old son really enjoyed. The water playground is more for smaller children up to 4-5 years. Very nice Zoo!

This is a great place for anyone. Friends have enjoyed the ziplining, the exhibits are clean and set up along mostly tree lined beautiful pathways. Recommended
