  • Small local zoo that has plenty to see! The prices are reasonable and you and your family will definitely enjoy it. Also, it's right inside the Cleveland Park so you can make it a full day of fun! 
  • It's smaller. 1 mile. Took us about 2 hours to get through it. They had a lot of signs and fun facts to read. They have a nice variation of animals. A good day trip 
  • If you take your time it might take you 2 hours to walk through the whole zoo, but the variety of animals is great and of course you have to see the baby giraffes, the Greenville zoo has at least 2 yo...  more »

  • I small but nice zoo. I have mixed feelings about zoos but it appears that some of the animals here have been taken in because they had health issues so they can be better cared for. All of the animals seem to be in good health and in comfortable confines. I appreciate the educational aspect of the zoo as well.
  • We love our local, but small, zoo! This is a nice relaxing atmosphere with clear paths. The exhibits are easily viewed with added perches for the smaller kids to see. The playground is a nice break for the kids to burn a little more energy and a veranda with rocking chairs for the adults. They have remodeled and updated several areas. Bathrooms are well placed throughout and we appreciated the misting stations on the 90+ degree day! You could easily spend all day at the zoo and the park just outside of it. The zoo takes about 2 hours to go through.
  • It's a small zoo. Small price. Cool playground nearby. Fun!
  • The Greenville Zoo offers lots of exhibits for a fair price. Even though it's not the largest zoo, it makes great use of space. Recommended for families, friends, or a much needed day off to be alone.
  • Went to visit the zoo on Saturday during the advertised hours to be met by a proud employee at the gate turning sxires of visitors away because management decided to do some kind of a setup. Very bad management decisions to close early on one of the busiest days without even advertising.
