Boo in the Zoo

We love the Greenville zoo, only wish they had more animals. Price is fair lots of events they host. It's a lot of fun for the whole family.

Construction going on so not all attractions were available. We are FOZ members and I was with my wife and one year old son. The jerk at the kiosk that needed a haircut refused to admit my wife because she had no ID. Note to Management. If I the cardholder, present my ID and I'm clearly with my family and... More

We visit the zoo quite often as the prices are reasonable and it is conveniently located near a great children's park, our favorite local bike trail (Swamp Rabbit Trail), and some good downtown restaurants. The zoo is small, but well kept up and pleasant. The exhibits seem to be large enough so that you don't immediately feel sad about the... More

We have lived in Chicago...so I know the Greenville Zoo is not a big city zoo. BUT it is delightful. Something you can do with your family of all ages-young and old-without being exhausted. The zoo is clean, the animals great, the staff is friendly and helpful. There's a big deal about a zoo in Dallas posting a video feed... More

I was very excited when I learned that I would be visiting the zoo in Greenville. It's such a lovely walk from downtown and my expectations were high for such a well developed and maintained area. I have been pleasantly surprised and pleased by the design and the overall appearance and appreciation for the natural beauty that has been expressed... More

I took my grandson to the park nearby and realized the zoo was right there. We ventured in and enjoyed the animals. The zoo is small and very easy to go through in a short time frame. I liked the size for a small child but am used to larger zoos with more animals.

Haven't been there in a while and not since the elephant exhibit was discontinued. One of the elephants died, leaving only one and she was moved to another zoo; but, sadly she died on the way there. The elephants were always a first stop whlle at the zoo. Always enjoy my visits there. New exhibits are being added so am... More

This zoo is extremely small and can be gone through in an hour and a half!! It is mostly shaded for our hot, SC summers which is a true blessing!!

This small size zoo packs a giant size punch. Small enough to stroll & enjoy in just a few hours and have time left to enjoy other nice - day activities. Yet large scale feel to enjoy a wide array of must-see animals. Great for young children, and there is a grand size playground right outside the zoo also.

This is a sad case of neglect by woeful city leadership and poor treatment of a neighborhood treasure. They even transferred the venerable Joy, the elephant, who tragically died on her way to a new home. She had brought her own brand of joy to several generations of children. Poor Joy who tried so hard. The zoo was once well... More
