If you're visiting the zoo on a hot Miami day, and you're looking for some relief, or if you just love to splash around in water, Zoo Miami has got you covered! Our several water-play areas located around the zoo are guaranteed to cool you down during your adventure. The biggest and best in wet fun is the Ocean Voyage play area of Playworld Playground, where kids can get soaking wet as they splash around a whale tail waterfall spouting fountains and overflowing buckets of water. Parents get a break to cool down too, as they supervise from shaded seating. Kids can also have a blast playing in the Fiesta Fountain at the Amazon & Beyond Village Plaza, where water shoots up from the ground to drench them! Smaller water-play areas include a water-spouting mushroom by the hyena exhibit and a water-shooting play area right in front of the Children's Zoo. Kids and adults alike can also enjoy the many refreshing, cool misting stations that are located throughout the zoo.
Gorillas will be off display until further notice. Our Children's Zoo area is undergoing some renovations from February 27 to April 1. All other areas of Zoo Miami are OPEN for your enjoyment! We apologize for the inconvenience.
