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.
Orangutans and gibbons will be off exhibit from Jan 17 - 20 for exhibit improvements. Wildlife Carousel will be closed for maintenance Jan 17 - 20. From Jan 17 - Mar 2017, some areas of the Children's Zoo will be under construction to improve our guests' experience. We apologize for the inconvenience.
