I have wanted to visit this zoo for quite some time and finally did this Saturday. Easy drive and super easy to find. Great zoo, the girls loved the train and carousel. Saw lots of animals we hadn't seen before. Very nice play area for the kids. All in all great zoo we had a blast!

The Erie Zoo is not a very large zoo however it is the perfect size for our large town. The exhibits are well maintained and the animals looked like there were well cared for. There zoo is going though some changes (for the better) they seem to be getting rid of a lot of the larger animal enclosures, such as... More

I visit this zoo quite often during the spring and Summer. It's small but very nice and easy to walk through. It's cheap and I enjoy the exhibits, the giraffes were always very neat. I understand the zoo is under renovation so I will defintley be heading back once they are complete.

We really enjoy the Erie Zoo. They have plenty of animals without being overwhelming. We can do the whole zoo without getting over tired. Everything is clean and well maintained. The staff is friendly and helpful. They were training a lot of new staff today,as it was obvious. We are grateful for the healthy lunch options too.

This community Zoo has some exhibits that other small town zoos don't have. What it shares with other such zoos appears to be pride what they have and in manner of presentation. Had an enjoyable time in an easy to navigate environment. Staff working there were very friendly and helpful

We came during an off time of year-probably the first warm day they'd had in a while but had an enjoyable time. Staff is friendly, the zoo is laid out well and easy to navigate, and little kids especially seemed to be having a great time. I'll probably visit again, even though our kids are older.

The zoo itself is beautiful, and the zoo is on the same grounds as the botanical gardens, which make it a pretty place just to walk through.

This is my favorite zoo to this date. I love the layout. The zoo is clean and the animals alert and seem happy. The flowers and gardens are beautiful. Architecture with grounds well thought out. A very pleasant outing. You will not be disappointed.

Love the Erie Zoo...a large part was fenced off for construction this summer so I am looking forward to the new lion area to be open. Very kid friendly!
