I love visiting this zoo. It’s educational. It’s great for families with small children. They have a lot of programs to be involved with. We are very fortunate as a community to have the zoo.

Our experience with the zoo itself is limited, we visit Greenville multiple times a year and even though we go to the zoo, we usually just use the park and the trail system around the zoo. Great walking trails right by a stream that is...More
