Its a small zoo, but my kids love going and seeing the animals, its hardly ever crowed so room to move about and enjoy without feeling you are overstaying the area at any given time, cost is not to bad and parking is free.

Not the best zoo if your kid can actually know what's going on, my son constantly asked me where were the variety of animals at the age of 5. Also only took us about 40 ninutes( and that's pushing it) to walk through the zoo. Sad. A lot of birds and snakes though.

Yes this zoo is small and not tons of animals. But it is the perfect size for small kids. My son was able and willing to walk the entire zoo. The exhibits are close up and very easy to see. We have been a few time and it has never been crowded. They also do so many events here (a... More

I was surprised that the zoo wasn't more modern. After all of the city planning that Greenville has done, I thought the zoo would keep pace. It is a lovely park setting and they have adorable animals. It is an easy walk and very family friendly. While I would readily recommend it, I was surprised at how outdated it felt.... More

Greenville Zoo is a nice little zoo, easy to find off 385. Clean and well run, was great even on a January day. Temp was in the 50's, and animals were out in the sun too. Small, only 1 to 1 1/2 hours to go through all the exhibits.

So proud of Greenviiles zoo! Great place to take kids. My grandkids love to go see and feed the animals. I love to walk around myself! It is also great to be so close to the play ground. I also like the educational programs that are offered. Boo in the Zoo is wonderful and so much fun for all! I... More

This zoo gets a lot of negative reviews due to the size. I think it is great. We take our daughter there for strolls on nice days and she loves it. Its the perfect size and attraction for a few hours of your day. The animals always seem healthy. There are several picnic areas that are shaded and places for... More

This zoo is much smaller than the Houston one I'm familiar with. But it matches the size of the city. My impression is that it's good for about 1-1.5 hours of entertainment. Some exhibits were empty or closed. It was kind of expensive for what it was. $8.75 for an adult. Located in downtown and close to Falls Park on... More

This place isn't as interesting as Hollywild and it seems the staff is not as friendly, the animals aren't as active and there's not much to see but monkeys and birds. Prob. The best zoo for a toddler or baby but this pkace is downsizing and getting worse and it's very sad to write this as i've been coming to... More
