One of the most beautiful zoos I have been to.. Architecture and overall quality of animal enclosures that ranks even with the larger zoos. An absolute must for a family with small children.

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.

You can easily walk this zoo in a couple of hours. Great for 5 and under. They finally tore down the playground...although my kids loved it, it was getting dirty and gross. I'm excited to see what they replace it with!

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
