Great for young children!

Although the collection of animals is limited, this is a great place to take children. There are lots of activities, and the walk is about right for the young ones.

We've been to the Greenville Zoo many times, with both our children when they were young and now our grandkids. It's a nice little Zoo and has a nice variety of animals to see. Easy to walk and the children love it. Would love to have large animals back. Broken hearted about Joy (The Elephant seen in the picture here)... More

The zoo is small, but the layout is fantastic. Located near downtown Greenville, it's family friendly and a great place to take kids.

I take my granddaughter here often. It's very inexpensive and it's a wonderful place to see zoo animals!! Outside the zoo is a beautiful park to relax and have fun. Many eateries near by that are very easy to get to Don't pass up the chance to visit the Greenville Zoo

Not in love with any zoo's actually, but this one seems to be trying to do the right thing for their animals.

Easy to complete in 2 or 3 hours.Perfect for a very young child to have a good experience. Petting zoo is very fun. Stroller ready, decent bathrooms and changing stations. A place to pick up snacks or take a short break, the zoo is basically a big loop.

GreenvilleZoo is very small. The animals are in very small enclosures and there aren't very many animals. The zoo is squeezed into the city. I think its inhumane for the animals and do not recommend. The Columbia Zoo is 100% better and well worth the drive. Also Hollywild Zoo is Greer is small but a nice outing. .

Nice little zoo to take the family for a little outing. Clean, well kept and friendly environment. Small but enough for an afternoon outing and the kids will love it. The zoo sits inside Cleveland park so there are things for the kids to do after the zoo without ever getting back into your car.

Is a very small zoo but is very accessible and with a good selection of animals to see. The price is very low and the annual membership is a very good idea if your kids wants to visit more often. The park next to the zoo have an amazing playground for little ones and pic nic area, also there is... More
