They enjoyed the active turtles, the petting zoo, giraffes, the monkeys catching apple pieces and the small train ride. Its a few hours to enjoy it all. Plenty... More

Its best to go early morning during the summer months. But it is best in the September-May months when it's a bit cooler. My grandchildren always ask to go to the zoo when they are in Gulf Breeze for a visit even though they've been going since they were tiny. They love feeding the birds!

This is a great little zoo. We had a wonderful time walking all over looking and feeding the animals. It was fun for my teenage sons to feed the animals and take pictures. The zoo is clean and well maintained. And the animals are lovable! It was a nice break from the sand and water at the beach. Grandma even... More

If I have to be perfectly honest, I feel like "roadside zoos" should be closed down all together. The habitats for these animals are so small that it's more like visiting a sad animal shelter than going to visit a zoo. There's no shade and nowhere to sit along the way. The kids did have fun in the petting zoo... More

This is a lovely little zoo with a surprising array of large animals. It was a unique opportunity to see some of the largest species up close and personal ~ including lions, tigers, and giraffes, which were close enough to feed by hand. That was a treat! The grounds are quite clean and mostly lush, tho a bit scruffy in... More

they really have a wide variety of animals. you can feed giraffes by hand, they have a lot birds, a train takes you around the park, and at wintertime, they douse the place in holiday lights. do get there late because it can be pricey to get in at wintertime.

Love this place and all the things you can do there. You can ride the train and go in a bird cage and feed the birds. Lot animals you can interact with and the place is amazingly clean
