This zoo is fantastic ... lots to see, reasonably priced, next to Cleveland Park playground, near rockin' downtown. For a small zoo, well worth the trip, and easily covered in an hour or two. Bring a picnic. Nice little gift shop.

This is the perfect size zoo for a family that has small children. Big enough to see without little ones tiring out and becoming cranky. We average at least one trip a week. Our son never tires of the zoo and there are tons of family activities, educational events, and neat animals. If you are a local I highly recommend... More

Our zoo is small, but very family friendly and just the right size for young children. Most families can tour the zoo in an hour with time for a snack along the way. Plan to have time for the kids to play in the wonderful playground just outside the zoo gates.

Very small zoo. Breezed through it within an hour. But for the price it was worth it. The kids had a blast! Best part is feeding the giraffes. Also a very nice playground/park at the entrance of the zoo.

The Greenville zoo is located less than 2 minutes for the city center and is within the Cleveland park area. It has a great toddler playground inside and so many animals it will surprise you.

If you are a world traveler then this zoo may be a little small for you but if you need somewhere for the children to unwind on an afternoon then it's perfect.

Not only are there zoo animals, there is a great playground to have the kids work out their energy. Very reasonable priced and a lovely place. Great location close to downtown. Would definitely recommend a visit

I just love this zoo! It is just off of the downtown and such a nice little diversion from everything else. It has just enough animals to view and amount of walking for a lovely afternoon. Bring a lunch and listen to the lions roar!!

I've had my grandkids here several times. They always enjoy it. The grounds are well kept, and across from the Zoo is a free playground with picnic tables.
