My husband and I have an interest in animals especially some wild and exoctic ones. Because of this we visit any zoo we can when we are on the road. Just down the road in Columbia is Riverbanks Zoo which has gotten national attention for its facilities and some conservation programs they are doing. Greenville is in a progressive move... More

This was a very well put together small zoo. I would plan on spending about 1 hour walking through the zoo and the prices are fair, it was $14.00 for myself and my 7 year old.

Enjoyed the Greenville Zoo - very conveniently located with plenty of parking. Park and playground adjacent to the parking lot is also a plus for families with children. This Zoo is very kid friendly, and while there was not a huge selection of animals - it was still a great learning experience.

As a small "city zoo," it is nice. I would not compare it to a larger zoo, but it is still nice. I would especially mention that its a nice place with small children, because it is rather small. They have a decent selection of animals, and it is laid out well. It's generally clean and fairly well maintained. If... More

This little zoo is just enough for small children with a good view of the animals. Especially like the giraffes.

The Greenville zoo really could use some work. It is a very small zoo and does not have a lot of animal exhibits but it worked out ok with the grandchildren because it was a very warm day and they didn't want to walk for very long.

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.
