The Zoo is home to over 400 animals and features a train and carousel. We recommend that you plan for at least 1.5 – 2 hours time for a visit to our Zoo.
The pavilions located in Glenwood Park are owned and operated by the City of Erie Parks Department. They are on a “first come, first serve” reserved basis.
We have wheelchair accessible routes throughout the zoo. Wheelchairs are able to be rented in the gift shop, based upon availability. You can call ahead and reserve a wheelchair by calling 814-864-4091.
Strollers rentals are available at the gift shop for an additional fee. $7.00 for single stroller. $8.00 for double stroller.
