Nice little zoo

Nice zoo, they have a great variety of animals. I loved all the monkeys, I wished I got to see the orangoutang (SP?) she was inside because it was to cold.

Not only is the zoo well laid out, there are play areas which make it very enjoyable for very young children. We had age ranges from 2 to 16, plus adults. There is a great play area just outside the zoo, and the Swamp Rabbit Trail (local bike path) passes the zoo.

My nephew and family came in town so we decided to visit. I was thrilled to find a great zoo for s great price. Some exhibits needed updating, but very clean and very large. Hope to return soon!

This zoo has been in Greenville for 50+ years. I grew up near the park. Greenville Zoo has been remodeled and updated throughout the years and is a fantastic place to take you children. Add this to you next visit to Greenville.

I was surprised to find all that this zoo had to offer. Well kept grounds and animals were out and several had pairs or families.

The kids love their annual trip to boo in the zoo. Great for a day trip when the weather is nice. The kids look forward to it every year

This is my hometown zoo. We love the zoo, and the animals themselves but...we have season tickets because they are the best deal. They literally pay for themselves before 2 uses. With that said, the exhibits are nice, but they don't switch out animals very often (not that that is "good"...but they don't "ADD" any either). They are working on... More

The zoo is divided into regions of the world, with good signage and good information at each section. Located on a hillside, it looks to be family friendly with a play area at the bottom.

I like this zoo because it is very kid friendly. Several times a day an expert targets a particular animal and gives a demonstration. The expert answers questions and even allows a hands on experience, if possible. My grandkids love going to this zoo.
