Greenville Zoo

At the 14-acre Greenville Zoo, you can visit wildlife from around the world any day of the week. Open throughout the whole year, except for Thanksgiving Day, Christmas Day, and New Year's Day, the zoo offers special rates for children and free admission for members. Group rates are also available.

Curious orangutans, cuddly red pandas, majestic lions, and many more call this 14-acre zoo their home. Every visitor has their favorite animal, but the giraffe exhibit is special to locals. Stop by and say hello to the newest calf, Kellan, whose name is an African word meaning ""powerful."" Born July 1, 2019, this knobbly legged little guy enjoys nuzzling with his mama, Autumn.

The Greenville Zoo cares about wildlife. The zoo is among only 10% of US exhibitors to be AZA-accredited, meaning they display steady commitment to animal welfare. The attentive staff are also dedicated to promoting conservation through youth education programs throughout the summer and school year.
