I've been to a few zoos in larger cities, and while they are nice, sometimes I feel they are too large. While Erie's Zoo may seem small compared to others (and it is). It is the perfect size for a half day trip or for children. The zoo only takes around two hours to get through, but there are certain... More

This was a nice zoo, however, we were a little disappointed to see that the zoo had no elephants, aquarium, and no bears. The zoo closest to where we live in Pittsburgh has all of these things so we felt a little spoiled by that zoo compared to ours.

The family spent a couple of hours checking out the animals and play areas. Construction sites were a bit much, but the zoo is very accessible and overall an easy trek.

We decided to visit the zoo on our recent trip to Erie. I was very impressed. This zoo is very clean and allows the opportunity to see the animals up close. Smaller than some, but worth it!

This is a nice little zoo that has a decent number of animals to see. You can literally see them all in about 2 hours. It is a very clean zoo, plus having ducks freely roam and having a separate childrens section are nice touches. I do not think the 8.00 per person is worth the 8 mimute train ride.... More

It was a great little zoo. The price was right and the kids liked it. It was small but had quite a few animals. The price was right as well.
