Nice zoo, small, we walked around, rode the train and the kids played in the play area and it only took 2 hours! Plan more to do to fill your day!

Erie zoo is a small but wonderful place to bring your children and grandchildren. We love zoo boo which takes place in October. There is a wonderful picnic and playground area outside of the park.

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
