Come Visit

Welcome to the Zoo!

Zoo Miami (also known as The Miami-Dade Zoological Park and Gardens) is the largest and oldest zoological garden in Florida and the only sub-tropical zoo in the continental United States.

The unique climate in South Florida allows us to keep a wide variety of animals from Asia, Australia, and Africa, representing a broad mix of species that is unlike any other zoo in the country.

Zoo Miami's lush, tropical, open-air exhibits replicate the animals' natural habitats and allow you to enjoy beautiful and endangered wildlife at a safe, yet remarkably close range.
