This zoo is pretty fun. I am a little surprised by how many animals they have.

“Perfect sized Zoo for a half day trip and free parking”
Reviewed May 24, 2012

My son had a class field trip to the Brevard Zoo. The weather was super hot, but there is a children's splash park. It's easy walking and be sure to bring lot's of dollar bills to buy food specific for each animal area. There are two different snack bars, but at lunch time there is quite a long wait. No family restrooms, so changing into bathing suits can be a challenge.

“So much fun!”
Reviewed May 22, 2012

Get there early to avoid the crowds and see the Giraffes. The tend to duck in when it gets cloudy or too hot. This place is always changing and expanding into something new every year. Worth a visit.
