Due to COVID-19 (Coronavirus), the Greenville Zoo will be temporarily closed to the public, starting Saturday, March 14th. This decision is following City of Greenville recommendations to help slow the spread of COVID-19 and was not made lightly. Animal care staff and vet staff will be on site to make sure our animals receive the same level of care during the closure. Follow us on social media for updates.
