“Fun, Varied, Smallish, In-town Zoo”
Reviewed February 7, 2013

Greenville, SC's zoo is a perfect children's destination. Very close to a good kid's park, the Zoo has a cute baby giraffe with its parents, all kinds of monkeys and a reasonably-priced store. As another reviewer mentioned, it's large and interesting enough to wear out the tykes, not necessarily an adult's zoology dream. Still, I go here with my family at least twice a year and more often if something special is going on. A must-see if you are visiting Greenville, SC with kids. Enjoy!

“just enough zoo to wear the little ones out”
Reviewed February 5, 2013

The zoo can pretty much be walked through in 30 minutes to an hour. Its usually the same stuff each time and gets boring for the adults but the kids dont mind. I buy an annual membership for the grandkids each year. They have fun and get fresh air so everyone is happy.

“Just love this zoo.”
Reviewed January 30, 2013 via mobile

My little one and I go several times every season. When she was born, the best gift we got was a year's pass to the Greenville Zoo. I put her in the baby Bjorn carrier and we walk around and point things out to each other. She has gotten to hear gibbons laughing, lions roaring, and birds calling. She's seen a baby giraffe, a baby orangutan, and a baby alligator. She has interacted with spider monkeys, goats and a rhino iguana. And she loves to watch the giant tortoises, elephants and leopards. It has been a wonderful experience. My favorites are the red pandas and the ocelots. We go on regular days and special events. I can't wait till she's old enough to do the toddler camps.

“Great Fun”
Reviewed January 23, 2013

We have been here a few times and we seem to find new things during each visit. The zoo had a new member born last October which has been a hit (a baby giraffe). We always have a good time at the Greenville Zoo and we were surprised of its content considering it's placed in a rather small city.
