After you've seen Riverbanks Zoo in Columbia, this is a total disappointment. It can't even compare. It's small, with a very limited number of animals and species. Greenville deserves a better zoo.

I love our little zoo in Greenville! It is growing! I'm glad the zoo is working to add new exhibits. The zoo always has creative events going on for children AND adults!

I love visiting this zoo. It’s educational. It’s great for families with small children. They have a lot of programs to be involved with. We are very fortunate as a community to have the zoo.

Took us about 2 hours to go through. Nice area for the animals, a pleasant hilly path for people. Some paths kind of steep so it could be tricky for a wheelchair-bound individual, but folks with strollers managed quite fine. Theres a super fun free...More

The Greenville Zoo, located just outside of Downtown Greenville, is a small, but big enough for a lot a fun. They have a large variety of animals. It’s clean, but, don’t totally enforce smoking, which I totally disagree with, being I’ve seen people smoking around...More
