The Erie Zoo, is a easily walked, mostly flat day trip. Lots of picnic areas and a play ground. The train is a quaint ride, thru a tunnel and over a bridge. The children's area is very interactive.

I do believe so. Parking seemed to be reasonably accessible. They added some stones to add room, you may have to walk a bit but there should be room.

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
