Field Trips

Register your group here. 

The zoo is open seven days a week and your group is welcome to visit any day. The zoo takes approximately an hour and a half to tour.

We are not offering onsite education programs at this time. All field trips will be considered a self-guided visit to the Greenville Zoo.

What to expect seasonally: 


Fall is a wonderful time to visit, with lighter crowds and animals enjoying cooling off from the summer temperatures. In mid-to-late October, the zoo is decorated for our popular Boo in the Zoo Halloween event. 


Does your group have spring fever? During peak field trip season (April and May), Thursdays and Fridays are the busiest days, so the earlier in the week you come, the lighter the crowds will be.

What to bring: 

  • Light jackets/rain gear (if necessary)
  • Sunglasses/sunscreen
  • Water
  • Light snacks (for inside the zoo)
  • Lunches (for lunch in Cleveland Park)
  • Tarp/blanket for a picnic in the park

Reserve a Cleveland Park Shelter
