If you’re planning on visiting Jacksonville sometime this summer, we have the perfect spot to take the family for a day of fun. Load your brood into your rental van and head out to Jacksonville Zoo and Gardens, Northeast Florida’s best and only zoo.

Located at 370 Zoo Parkway Jacksonville, Florida 32218, finding your way to the zoo is a snap in your spacious and accommodating FL passenger van rental from Carl’s Van Rentals.

Jacksonville Zoo and Gardens prides itself on fostering an interactive and educational atmosphere that’s also a lot of fun. Over 2,000 rare creatures and 1,000 varieties of plants from all over the globe call the zoo home and would be honored to have you as their guests.


African Loop: A 1,400-foot-long boardwalk guides visitors through vast enclosures called the East African Plains. Along the extensive boardwalk, you’ll run into (well, not literally, that would be dangerous) some of your favorite animals like cheetahs, warthogs, cranes, elephants, lions, and so many more.

Giraffe Overlook: Kids will absolutely adore the giraffe overlook. The gangly, long-necked, cloven-hoofed beasts will bring a smile to your face as their elongated purplish tongues snatch leaves right from your hand.

Australian Adventure: No visit to Jacksonville Zoo & Gardens is complete without a walkabout through the Australian Adventure exhibit. Animals here include wallabies, red kangaroos, cassowaries, and lorikeets that you can feed in a special, free-flight aviary.


The zoo is open year-round (except Christmas Day) from 9 a.m. until 5 p.m.


Adults (13-64): $14.95

Children (3-12): $9.95

Seniors (65+): $12.95
