Looking for a fun relaxing family afternoon, try the Greenville Zoo. Very small in scale but a good value for a young family with young kids. Variety of exotic animals are limited but nephew really enjoyed the tour. They have a very nice playground and park next to the river that you could spend an afternoon picnic at without even... More

Had an amazing time with my husband looking at the animals. It was a great date night! For a small zoo it was well thought out and the animals are well taken care of

The zoo wasn't so big that it was overwhelming but a perfect size for a perfect day with the family. It only took a few hours to see it all. Great place for you and your family!

This park has tennis courts, a dog park, plenty of paved trails (its part of the swamp rabbit trail), river passage, playground equipment, and plenty of parking. I spent three afternoons here running along the trail while I was visiting and this park was always bustling. It was a nice slice of green in the city.

Not a ton to see here - but it was nice for a quick stop with my 3 year old. We saw it all in about an hour. Best thing I liked was the water mister things - great on a 90 degree day!

It's not a bad zoo, it's just very small. There are truly better zoos to visit that aren't far away.

That's always the case huh? Maybe it was because it was only $6 back then or cause it was our first visit, but I left wishing for more even if admission was only $8.75. "Joy" the elephant unfortunately died while being transported to another zoo for geriatric care (I took a picture of her couple years earlier in her heyday)... More

The Greenville zoo is not the largest magnificent zoo but it is a nice zoo! Especially for younger children going for their first time or to make fun family day trip! It's a nice well kept zoo and the exibits have up close viewable access to the animals!!! It is an easy stroll through!! I recommend bringing stuff to grill... More

It's not the biggest or best zoo but there is a huge play area and a number of large playgrounds outside the gate of the zoo (free access to the playgrounds). I'd recommend bringing a picnic here also the food wasn't up to much. It's a small zoo it was a bit sad to see the lack of space for... More

The staff was rude and very few animals to see for the admission price! Taking inventory on a day when kids come there to buy a souvenir and when I asked when they were opening, I got a very rude response that they had to take inventory and it might take all day! Seems crazy to me to take inventory... More
