Came here with my 6 month old, husband, my brother and his family. With our young children this was the prefect place to come. It took us just over an hour to walk through. Very small and intimate with lots of different kinds of monkeys. My 5 year old niece loved the farm animal encounter. We enjoyed it and the... More

Very small, but still a diverse zoo. Reptile building was interesting. My age 3 and 1 granddaughters have been here multiple times and never seem to tire of it. Fun to walk around the paths (or run, as in the case of the 1-year-old). VERY nice playground in Cleveland Park just outside the zoo. Also very nice little-kid playground inside... More

Walking distance from downtown (Main Street) is about 1.5 miles and can get there nicely from the Swamp Rabbit trail. Zoo was small but really taken care of nicely. About 90 minutes to 2 hours to see it all.

The zoo is small but clean and very well maintained. It seems to be a great place to take children. Here we go again, making me write 100 characters.

They should add an aquarium exhibit. I think there could be more interaction with the pubic by the staff and activities to promote animal welfare with children

The Zoo was nice to see, but was smaller as excepted. But what I've seen was interesting ans you can be close to the animals. To spend one hour there is OK.

What a sweet little zoo. It was the perfect way to spend our afternoon. They have a great variety of animals and the layout allows you to be close to their habitats (much closer than some other zoos I've visited).

This was a pretty good zoo. It was just really small. It was definitely worth the visit, but it was nothing to really "write home about". Some of the animal exhibits were awesome though! The giraffes and lions were probably our favorites.

I enjoyed my trip to the zoo. It was a pleasant experience. The animals were interesting as well as the scenery. The place was clean, and the staff friendly. My only disappointment was the size(it runs a bit small), and that some of the attractions weren't there yet.

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.
