We have lived in Chicago with larger zoos available. The Greenville zoo offers just enough to keep going back, without feeling overwhelmed. A beautiful day, seeing animals, a walk along the river, picnic in the park, stroll downtown or take the trolly...you can do it all in Greenville! A season pass is a wonderful investment for the family-see what you... More

I have been taking my kids to the Greenville Zoo for years. Just not the same since Joy the elephant died. Small hometown zoo. Clean and we'll maintained. Very small. The giraffes are cool.

Greenville Zoo offers the right dose of entertainment for kids up to maybe 12. No big entertainment shows, but a nice and educational reptile department. It's small-town entertainment as you would expect it and offers a variety of kids' educational camps.

Greenville zoo is a smaller, but not disappointing zoo to spend an afternoon in. Great for smaller children who have shorter attention spans or tire quickly. Easy walking areas with plenty of benches to sit and watch some of the animals from while you enjoy the landscaping around the zoo. Well planned and cared for!

Greenville has been/is making changes to vamp up downtown, making it more inviting to the community and tourist friendly. But over the years no changes have been made towards one of the important places for the children. Its too small, needs better viewing, and more options. This zoo is very small, can be a let down if you have been... More

I liked the price, the size, the variety of animals, and the beautiful location! This is a great place to take your family. Many locals buy inexpensive season passes. There's a great playground right next to the entrance too!

There's places for young and older children to play. The animals are in a nice airy section, The giraffes are great. It's always relaxing to spend time there and than cross the road to the wonderful playground.

Zoo is very nice but small. We buy season passes every yea and for the money it is fun for the kids. The pass also gets discounts to other local zoos like Zoo Atlanta or Riverbanks in Columbia so it's worth it if you do some travelling. It takes maybe an hour to see things and a bit longer if...
