The Brevard Zoo is a 75 acre non-profit facility in Melbourne, Florida. This is my favorite zoo in Florida due to intimate size, simple park layout, friendliness of the volunteer staff, variety of animals, and a wonderful water park and petting zoo for the little ones.
If you get a chance to visit, make sure to check out the Treetop Trek – Ziplining and obstacle course in the trees above the animal exhibits. During one visit I heard chatter above me and stopped to speak with two ladies doing the trek. They said “We meet here every Saturday. It’s healthier than sitting in a coffee shop and catching up after a busy week.”
Recently another baby giraffe was born. Seeing him and his young sibling are worth the admission alone.
