Great zoo! Go every year that we visit Erie. Great for adults & children. Also, nice train ride that takes you thru the zoo and get to hear a little on history of the zoo.

Small but packed with things to see. Laid out nicely to walk around. Great on a weekday. Places to picnic are near far away.

The zoo was a lot of fun and had a lot of exhibits I did not expect. Rhino, Zebra, Giraffe, and Penguins were awesome!

I didn't expect much being that I was in Erie. It is an older zoo and the exhibits are small. They are upgrading some of it, which is nice. Layout was a little weird as we missed a whole area and had to double back....More

This is a great smaller zoo that carried a few animals that I have never seen or heard of before! The price of admission was very reasonable as was the price of concessions. It was a great way to spend about 3 hours!

Just like any other zoo. It’s small but if you’re looking for something to do for a few hours this is the place to come to relax and enjoy. Clean and friendly!

A relatively small zoo, but very nice. There are a wide variety of animals to see. There are some interactive exhibits, especially in the children's area. Perfect for young children. The price is quite low.

Looks like the others never drove a trailer and parked one. There was limited parking after 11am. I suggest you get there way before park opens if you have a travel trailer.

Hi, I am sorry but I do not know the bus routes in Erie. You could call the bus transit terminal and ask. Sorry that I am not more help. Enjoy the Zoo. We loved it. Jennifer
