Small zoo with tons of great stuff. We got the ticket that includes animal feeding and train ride (only $5 extra), and get a second day free. So we are going back just for a couple hours do kids can play in the splash bay and playground.

It was a nice mid sized zoo. We enjoyed it. The animals appear well taken cared for. Zoo was clean. Nice Volunteers. Walk slow and take your time, its not that big.

The Brevard Zoo is a small treasure. It is my granddaughter's favorite place to go....even over Disney! Why? It is well kept. It has the most wonderful volunteers. There are so many different activities and programs offered. Many children attend zoo camp in the summer. There is a little pool for kids and toddlers to cool off in. It is... More

Not a huge variety of animals and fairly compact. All the animals looked well, although the leopard looked a bit thin. The train ride was different and fun and the petting aquarium good. Feed a stingray. Shallow activity pools for the kids.

We took a break from the beach to visit the zoo. Our two year old absolutely loves it. We would highly recommend it for a family with small children. Our two year old got in free and my husband and I paid $35. We also paid $2 to feed the giraffe at the giraffe area. We paid $5 at a... More

In general I am not a fan of Zoos, seeing animals all cooped up. this zoo seems an exception or at the very least not as confining as most. animals have room to move. only the animals themselves know if this is to their liking!

We both really enjoyed our day at this zoo. It is nothing like our huge zoo near Chicago. There was so much foliage even in February and the animals were not usually caged. Instead they were in natural environments. The highlight was the bird sanctuary. The birds were very colorful and they were everywhere. We paid $1 for a stick... More
