My ASD son totally enjoyed this zoo. I was super worried but it was for nothing. He enjoyed all of the animals especially the otters. It was a hot day but you can easily find shaded spots with no problem. They have a nice gift shop with reasonably priced items. The admission was reasonable and worth it. Adults $17.95/Children ages 3-11 $13.95/Children under 3 are free. Its usually opened from 9:30AM to 4:15PM. The kids will love it. Also, this is one of the most educational zoos that I have ever been too!

Get outdoors and enjoy a little wild life. Enjoy the wonderful adventures of the local zoo, such as, pet petting, zip lining, and small bathing pool for the little ones.

My family spent many afternoons enjoying the zoo always ending the day in the splash pool to cool off! Make sure to enjoy the extras offered at the zoo- train ride, feed the giraffes, kayak and zipline!

Great day out for all the family, they have zip lines so you can view the zoo and animals from the tree tops! Also good childrens pool with fountains and slides to cool off on a hot summers day.

Small perfect for a short outing. But, you can spend longer enjoying the animals.

The Brevard Zoo is located in the North Melbourne area (Viera), and although it's a small zoo, it is chock full of animals big and small. It is definitely worth a visit.

A small group of people with a big dream...building a zoo. A world-class zoo that would serve as a conservation hub where people could gather to learn about animals. A place to escape from the urban world and get closer to nature, to be reminded of the diversity of the life with which we share this planet.

They had the vision, but now they needed the resources. Frank Vega, past publisher of Florida Today, recruited several community leaders and the dream started to take shape. Executives from the major aerospace companies formed teams to work on architectural designs as well as to provide the labor for the new Zoo. A. Duda and Sons generously donated the land - a prime location for the Zoo

The Brevard Zoo was a nice surprise for our grand daughters and us. The animals are very viewable in natural environments. The girls really enjoyed looking at the animals from our kayaks in the waterway. Educational and easy to find, right off the freeway. Pricing is reasonable and parking was free. They recently added Treetop Trek aerial zip lines, which we understand, are fun.
