Dont expect a San Diego Zoo experience but it is a nice place to visit for a short zoo trip. This is an excellent place to take young kids especially with the nearby playgrounds.

The zoo was a perfect size, especially if you have small children. The orangoutangs are adorable and lots of other cool animals. It is a small zoo so it won't be an all day venture. And the food there was reasonable as well.

My husband and I love to visit our zoo. It is small but the exhibits are interesting and the animals are fun. Go mid morning and you might be able to watch the zookeepers weighing the red panda. They use white grapes to lure him onto the scale & we watched him step off right before his weight registered in... More

This zoo is nice to take children. I went there when I was a child many years ago. The zoo has improved. The surrounding park is really nice to. Good place to go to kill time.

Enjoyed taking my nieces there. Sad that some of the animals are gone and that you can no longer feed the goats and chickens. They loved the little kids playground inside the zoo and the water misters to cool off by walking through.

This is a lovely zoo for young children. They do not have many animals, and I think the price is a bit steep. If you live in this area, a yearly pass makes sense, but I would not visit Greenville just for the Zoo

This is a small but nice little zoo. We had a couple hours to kill before dinner and the zoo, surrounding park, and snow cone vendor helped us do that. Maybe we lucked out, but the lions and giraffes were out running around and entertained everyone for a good while. The "petting zoo" area was cute. Was fun for us... More

I wouldn't mind that the zoo was small with limited attractions, because sometimes on a hot summer day a trip to a zoo that you can see all the sites in less than 90 minutes is just what you need. I did however think that the animals are kept in the least amount of space possible, and several looked thinner... More

We felt the zoo was an excellent zoo for a family with small children. The exhibits were great and the trails were very good for strollers or walkers.
