My husband and I love to visit our zoo. It is small but the exhibits are interesting and the animals are fun. Go mid morning and you might be able to watch the zookeepers weighing the red panda. They use white grapes to lure him onto the scale & we watched him step off right before his weight registered in... More

My wife and I had a great time especially when we saw the large tortoises . A lot to see and do plan to spend a few hours there.

This zoo is nice to take children. I went there when I was a child many years ago. The zoo has improved. The surrounding park is really nice to. Good place to go to kill time.

Enjoyed taking my nieces there. Sad that some of the animals are gone and that you can no longer feed the goats and chickens. They loved the little kids playground inside the zoo and the water misters to cool off by walking through.

This is a lovely zoo for young children. They do not have many animals, and I think the price is a bit steep. If you live in this area, a yearly pass makes sense, but I would not visit Greenville just for the Zoo

This is a small but nice little zoo. We had a couple hours to kill before dinner and the zoo, surrounding park, and snow cone vendor helped us do that. Maybe we lucked out, but the lions and giraffes were out running around and entertained everyone for a good while. The "petting zoo" area was cute. Was fun for us... More

I wouldn't mind that the zoo was small with limited attractions, because sometimes on a hot summer day a trip to a zoo that you can see all the sites in less than 90 minutes is just what you need. I did however think that the animals are kept in the least amount of space possible, and several looked thinner... More

We felt the zoo was an excellent zoo for a family with small children. The exhibits were great and the trails were very good for strollers or walkers.

This zoo is small... very small, which is both a blessing and a curse. It's a blessing because we were able to fit our visit in between breakfast and lunch. It was a nice compact chunk of time that fit perfectly into the rest of our agenda. It's only a curse if your are expecting a more expansive zoo like... More

While zoos in general bother my environmental sense, Greenville, for the most part, provides habitats that appear sufficient for their resident's. I still cringe seeing wild animals held in caged areas and cannot shake the feeling that it is not right though. The adjacent park has a playground that is delightful for the kids.
