“Great little zoo with fantastic assortment of animals”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 29, 2012

The animals here are very different than what I see at my local zoo (Detroit) and it was refreshing. It's easy to navigate and great for kids (tip: plan on spending time outside the zoo at the playground). Most animals were up and about, and they seemed EXTREMELY well cared for, clean and happy.

“Greenville Zoo”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 24, 2012

Greenville Zoo is small, but that can be a good thing. One can go through this zoo in a couple of hours without the kids getting too tired.

“Okay zoo, nice playground.”
3 of 5 bubbles 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”
3 of 5 bubbles 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.
