The Greenville Zoo, located at 150 Cleveland Park Drive in Cleveland Park, is home to a wide variety of animals from around the world. Founded in 1960 with the aim of promoting an appreciation of nature and wildlife and educating the community about nature conservation, the zoo features a range of diverse habitats in which animals are kept and looked after, from African lions, giraffes, and Amur leopards to domestic animals, reptiles, frogs, and snakes.
The zoo has an excellent conservation and research program called Quarters for Conservation, which provides funding towards the protection of endangered animals such as giant anteaters, turtles, Gibbon monkeys, and Amur leopards. The zoo has a network of walking and bicycle paths, playgrounds for children, tennis and volleyball courts, and several picnic sites for visitors to enjoy.
