The Greenville Zoo is small, but it's very clean and has a nice variety of animals. We have a family membership which is very affordable. The cost pays for itself with a few visits. I especially enjoy going there in the spring and the fall.

The zoo is very nice. It is not huge but it is enjoyable for people. Lots of different animals. The snacks and the store is very nice and reasonable. There is some places for children to play in zoo, and a great playground right outside of zoo.

A really nice zoo to visit, not too big or busy. The residents all looked well cared for and there was quite a good variety from pot bellied pigs and chickens to lions and giraffes.

We have lived in Greenville for a long time and have always wondered why they keep the larger animals in such small spaces. They have used a lot of space for play areas...to me that is a waste. It is a nice enough zoo.

This is a small zoo, suitable for a small town; it has no great exhibits and no large animals. The upside of that is that what is there can be viewed up-close in (often pitiful) enclosures. My grandkids liked it more than a much finer zoo in another state for these very reasons.

We had a great time visiting the zoo with my son and two grandchildren. They loved the play area and zoo animals. The staff at the gate could use a little help with their knowledge of member programs bu they were pleasant for the most part. The zoo is smaller and can be done in a couple of hours more... More

Greenville Zoo is small but easy to navigate and very enjoyable. They have a wide variety of animals to see and a small concession area and gift shop. It was clean and although very hot when we were there it is mostly shaded and they had some cooling stations which was a nice reprieve.
