My husband and I walked around this zoo in about 3 hours. We loved seeing all the animals and loved the educational posts about the animals. We observed same species interactions such as the monkeys making a ruckus! We were able to take some great photos of the various animals and our favorites were the Red Pandas especially the cub....

My family and I went to the zoo the day after Thanksgiving. Very inexpensive to get in. Adult ticket 9.00. Cheaper than a movie. It takes about 2-3 hours to walk through the zoo and see all the exhibits. It is small in comparison to some of the other zoos I have visited. (Pittsbugh & Cleveland) but it is a... More

This is a nice zoo, no long lines but I wish they had more attractions. There is plenty of picnic space and a cute little gift shop on site. Some things to do during the fall such as Boo in the Zoo, appeals to the younger crowd.

The Greenville zoo used to be so much better. They had a better variety of animals and they weren't all behind dirty glass.There are a number of better zoos within 2 hours of Greenville, I would recommend saving your money and visiting one of them.

This is a small zoo but nice, easy to go, friendly and kids really enjoy it. The people at the zoo try really harder to keep the place nice and neat

We go there often, usually with grandkids. They always enjoy seeing the animals. They no longer have the elephants and are making numerous changes to the zoo. They have some new animals, but we have not been there to see them yet. We especially like to see the lions and giraffes.

The animals love to see the people and they make nice sounds for you. Our family watches and learns so much more to see real live animals.

This zoo is small and only takes about two hours tops to get through. It's not expensive and worth the trip especially with young kids. There are a few little playgrounds throughout the park for the kids to enjoy and a snack stop too. However I'd skip on the snack bar and eat before or after your visit.

My husband and I took our 3 children to this zoo and we were completely disappointed. There were no elephants, no tigers. It has extremely too many trees and not enough animals. It was NOT worth the price paid. There was no water in the animal's "ponds", cages and animals seemed neglected.

Perfect size zoo for a field trip. Interesting animal exhibits but not lots of walking. The classes for the students were well done and held their attention. The kids had a fun day.
