Playgrounds
 
After observing and learning about so many different exotic animals at the zoo, sometimes kids get inspired to act a little wild too! Here at Zoo Miami, there are several playground areas designed for kids to create their own adventures. At Playworld Playground’s Jungle Journey area, kids can tap into their inner monkey at the jungle gym, or let their imaginations take them on a safari, as they escape life-size gorilla and hippo figures. After their jungle journey is done, they can hop on over to the Ocean Voyage playground, a water-themed area where kids can get soaking wet playing with spouting fountains, overflowing buckets and a whale tail waterfall.

At the Children’s Zoo, kids can run around the playground or climb atop a rock figure as parents supervise from the snack bar. For more educational fun, kids can check out the Wings of Asia Aviary entry plaza, where they will find a huge mock excavation pit containing a 40-foot long dinosaur skeleton. This plaza provides interesting opportunities for kids to learn about dinosaurs, birds and the connection between the two. Amazon and Beyond also features several small play areas for kids, including Fiesta Fountain, a water-play area in the Village Plaza. Smaller playgrounds can also be found in each forest, where kids can climb on top of their favorite wild animals and bounce around the spongy floors. The entry plaza in front of Dr. Wilde’s World also features large animals like an elephant, crocodile and rhino for kids to climb and play.
