We have visited the Frontier Park many times over the years. Whether you enjoy the playground, the tennis courts, the walking/bike paths, the soccer fields, the labyrinth or maybe sledding the hills after a good snowfall. Thee is no better place in Erie than LEAF.

This is a nice clean and safe park in the city of Erie. The meditation maze is worth the time. The trees are all marked and therefore informative. Great for winter sledding too.
