“Okay zoo, nice playground.”
Reviewed November 20, 2012

Greenville zoo is the closest zoo to our house so we visit it a couple times a year. It's a small zoo, but there is enough to do for a 1/2 day family trip. The playground just outside is huge and tons of fun for all ages.

“Baby Giraffe Made the Trip Worth It”
Reviewed November 16, 2012

This zoo is OK. We went just to see the newborn baby giraffe and luckily we were able to see him. We were very disappointed that the zoo did not offer wheelchairs as my elderly mother-in-law was with us. That would have made our experience much better.

“Come see our newest arrival!”
Reviewed November 14, 2012

Can see entire Zoo in two hours. Perfect for the family! Baby Giraffe just born on display. I recommend the Year Family Pass, you can use it for other zoo's in the State.

“Great little zoo.”
Reviewed November 8, 2012

Went during the week with my wife. Very easy to walk between exhibits. Plan on taking about an hour plus, especially if you have little kids. We were there just twelve hours before the baby giraffe was born but the mother was nesting by eating all the weeds in the enclosure. Enjoy the day.

“Cute Zoo and Great Park”
Reviewed November 6, 2012

We took 3 young boys to the park and zoo in Greenville and they loved it. Our time was split between the wonderful park in front of the zoo which had more creative equipment than I've seen in a long time AND the beautiful little zoo with very nice animals and great pathways. We all loved it!
