Los Angeles Zoo, Los Angeles Reviews - Write a Review

  • What an amazing experience! I was a bit cynical going into it based on what I had heard from others, but we just LOVED the LA Zoo! The atmosphere was so pleasant, the exhibits were well maintained and the zoo was well cared for. My family and I had a great time. The gorillas were especially captivating. Thanks for the memories!

  • Decided to attend opening night of the LA Zoo Lights. I must say it was fun and my family enjoyed it from start to finish. The one exhibit I enjoyed the most was the twinkle tunnel. The price for admission was reasonable and didn't have to pay for parking. I highly recommend.

  • Visited during their LA Zoo Nights. Got tickets online. Beautiful lights and decorations. Even though most animals are sleeping, it was a fun place to spend a warm November evening. There's a beautiful Christmas tree at the entrance and the music puts you in the holiday spirit.

  • This is one of the best places (and deals) to come to in LA. Our small children love it. We have been coming here for years. The trick is to arrive early before parking fills up and the crowds arrive. We even had a Birthday party here. The annual family pass price is practically free. There have been talks about privatizing the ownership, I hope this doesn’t change the experience for us loyal LA zoo-goers. We often pack a picnic lunch and find a bench (opposite the monkeys) to have lunch. The more you come here, the less chances you have of getting lost. It’s a maze. All part of the fun. 5 Stars!
