The Erie Zoo is quite small, however charming, especially for kids to enjoy their nice collection of animals. The place is clean, accessible, easy to walk, and takes about an hour or so to see and experience all their exhibits, including the train ride. Located...More

Our zoo has expanded over several years. Many of the animal attractions have been updated for their safety and enjoyment. The children's area is hands on. Love this place to visit. Take the train ride first to see the area.

Traveled 2 hours to come see the lovely Erie Zoo but it was closed, contradicting what the website stated. I suggest calling in advance because apparently you never know when they're going to close at random.

This zoo was fun. There were a lot different animals and it was right around Halloween so the spooky decorations were a lot of fun. They regularly have special feedings and talks. My favorite were the farm animals.

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
