As home to over 300 animals, it's no wonder that the Erie Zoo is one of the 'wildest' places in the city! Pleasant pathways through the site's 15 acres highlight not only the animals, but also the hundreds of plants and flowers that have been carefully incorporated into the landscape. All ages will enjoy the Children's Zoo, where you can experience first hand the friendliness of some of the Zoo's most gentle inhabitants. Open year round, the Zoo also features special seasonal events like October's scary-but-not-so-scary ZooBoo.
