Love visiting zoos and this one didn’t disappoint
Oct. 2021 • Couples
Great little zoo. The animals looked well cared for. Many cages had cross areas from side to the other giving them areas where they can explore. Many volunteers who talked about different animals, things coming up at the zoo and answered lots of questions. About a 2-3 hour visit with lots for kids to see.

Beautiful Zoo
Sep. 2021
This is one of the nicest zoos we have been to in a long long time. It is beautifully shaded, lots of animals well kept, great layout. Everyone working there and volunteering is very friendly. They say they are a small zoo, but it didn't seem small to us. Went in the morning and spend about 2-3 hours there. So much to see and they are adding more. I forget to mention, there is a great outdoor area to have lunch from their restaurants.

A hidden treasure!
Apr. 2021
The Brevard Zoo is not to be missed! It was well worth the hour drive from Vero Beach to see this hidden treasure. The exhibits are all beautiful and spacious, and the animals are well taken care of. They have many animals I had never seen before, including a giant otter! Such a fun day, I hope to soon return.

Consider becoming a pass holder if you live close by!

I’m currently a pass holder and this Zoo is absolutely amazing for my toddler son! We go here at least 2 x a week, and enjoy the animals or little splash pad. There is also great playground so you can definitely plan a whole day of activities with kids!

Local zoo will surprise you
Aug. 2021
Have been meaning to visit this zoo for a few years while our daughter attends college in Melbourne and finally made it! We were so impressed by the entire place. All of the staff were very friendly and informative. The property is well laid out and interesting to walk around, and there is a large variety of animals to see. You could easily spend several hours here. The splash pad is great on hot days as is the Dole Whip (YUM!). The only drawback were the birds stealing people's lunches at the cafe in the center of the zoo. You had to eat with one hand and fend them off with the other. We literally watched them hop onto the picnic tables and grab someone's hamburger bun. It's amusing until it starts happening to you. It would be great if the zoo could put up screened in areas for dining so that you can actually enjoy your meal as there is a pretty good selection of items to choose from there. We did one of the kayak trips which was great but did not have a chance to get to the other kayak route or the train. This is definitely a great place to entertain the family!!

Wonderful Wedding
Jul. 2021
We have been Brevard Zoo members for several years, worth every penny, always enjoyable to walk thru the Zoo.

Whoever designed the layout of the building should be congratulated on how well the day and people flowed from area to area.

We attended our first wedding at The Nyami Nyami River Lodge, what a wonderful experience.

The ceremony was on the outdoor patio, under the shade for the guests, with the beautiful water and trees in the background.

The indoor area is so large, no crowding.

The animals greeted us at the entrance with the zookeeper, and were also shared in a special section on the patio. The merkeets were always active and entertaining, with viewing areas near the buffet section.
