This zoo is on the smaller side, but it's landscaping and layout make it seem much bigger than it is. Good variety of animals with decent size exhibits

This zoo is just the right size. With little ones they stay interested and it is not to tiring on their little legs. Lots of things to see and do. The food prices are reasonable and they loved the little train.

Very disappointed in this Zoo...some of the animals seemed so miserable and lonely. I read other reviews that said the same thing..wish I had read before I went and I would not have gone.

You only need a few hours to see the whole zoo but it's one you must visit. The buildings, bridges and hanging plants are so beautiful and the enclosures are unique and the animals have lots of room. The staff were friendly.

It's a cute but a small zoo. Plenty of animals to look at. It's a nice way to spend the afternoon. The animals weren't too active because it was a little windy and chilly. Also there is a playground for kids to run and play.

This was a nice little zoo. There were plenty of animals and a lot of activities for kids. It had a nice layout, but some of the enclosures seemed a bit small.

It is not the most interactive zoos I have been to, but the habitats are well maintained and the staff are friendly.

Quaint and cozy, lots of shade - not too big and nice animal displays. Not sure what food was available, got some drinks and there is a gift shop.

Very good zoo for younger children under age 10. Layout and traffic flow is very good. If you live locally, good zoo to have season pass for younger children.

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
