Nice little zoo

We went on a day that was over 100 degrees and it didnt really seem too bad. It's a smaller zoo, so we got through it in less than an hour. We enjoyed watching a baby monkey.

It's a small zoo but it's enough for my the young kids. They love the playground in the middle as well. We have a membership which is very affordable and so we come a ton in the spring and fall

We took about an hour and 15 minutes to tour this zoo with a 3 and 4 year old. The kids loved seeing the lions up close and it had some of the loudest (and interesting) monkeys I've ever seen at a zoo. It was a VERY hot day or we probably would have stayed longer. Fairly priced tickets for... More

The Greenville Zoo is a really nice zoo in Greenville. Parking is free and admission was $9 for adults. They do have memberships available as well. It takes about an hour to see all the exhibits so it felt like it was lacking something. I would have liked a few more exhibits. There is a place to buy food and... More

My daughter and I went to visit the giraffes. What magnificent animals. They were beautiful and so entertaining. We were so disappointed that the one "baby" died. We have been following the giraffes on the live Cam for years.This is a very small Zoo. I was brought up visiting the Bronx Zoo. However this zoo is very enjoyable. Another favorite,... More

In town on a business trip with my husband. I took my 11yr old son to the zoo. I had heard it was small, but actually bigger than I expected. It is smaller than most but makes up for it in quality. Staff is super nice and informative. We really enjoyed our trip and will go again next time we're... More

We visited this zoo few weeks ago and it was a very sad experience; over 90 degrees temperature and no enough water for most of the animals, our 4 year and 8 year old even talked about it; entrance fee is very expensive to what this zoo has to offer to their visitors. Very disappointed! Greenville has many beautiful areas... More

Exceptional offering of nice displays and well managed enclosures. 101 on the day we visited they had a spray tent but the Zoo was appropriately sized for a 6 and 3 year old despite the heat. Alligator exhibit was a hit. Excellent experience for the kids at a reasonable price.

This is a well-managed small zoo in a generally pleasant setting with emphasis on bird life and varied species of monkeys, though there are a representative African and South American areas.

As zoos go, this is a postage stamp variety with relatively few animals. The path through the zoo is a loop of exactly one mile and will take you little more than an hour to complete. The setting is very attractive with the various cages set among a heavy growth of trees and shrubs. It was entertaining for my 9... More
