This is a small zoo with the basic animals you'd expect to see. It is the perfect size to keep my toddlers attention without overwhelming her! Keep expectations low (this is no Columbus or San Diego zoo) and it's a fun 90 minute zoo trip.

This zoo is large enough to give anyone a great day of entertainment and small enough to make it the perfect place to introduce younger children to a great variety of animals. Stroller and wheelchair friendly. Picnic area for family outings.

This zoo needs some upgrades, and also if possible an increase in size. You can walk around the whole thing in ten minutes not even.

Wonderful zoo for young children! Only takes a couple hours to see and enjoy all the exhibits. This leaves plenty of time for the little ones to catch a nap before or after their fun and exciting day!

This is a nice smaller zoo. The staff was very friendly and helpful. You can tell they care about the animals. There is a concession area and gift shop. Also a train ride is available for a small fee. Plan on about 2 to 3...More

This zoo is pretty small, but the narrow walk paths seemingly give more of a "jungle" feel. My son is young, so this zoo is just big enough to keep his attention. They have all the main animals you would expect at the zoo. My...More

We visited the zoo to kill some time as we waited for the weather to improve. I was nicely surprised by the small but well run zoo. The price was 9 dollars for an adult and we'll worth it. At first I was concerned about...More

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
