Los Angeles Zoo - Review
A prime attraction of the Los Angeles, the Los Angeles Zoo is a later addition to the Los Angeles. Besides safely housing the large variety of animals, the large zoo has accommodations and provides facilities for educational programs and public enrichment knowledge bases about the evolution or lifestyle of the animals.
The most famous attractions of the Los Angeles Zoo are its Campo Gorilla Reserve which specializes in the caring and exhibition of the western lowland gorillas within a comfortably large reserved space. The visitors are supposed to see the animals from behind two observation chambers of glass. It includes culture of palms, fern plants and pomegranates to provide natural fodder for the gorillas.

Los Angeles Zoo, Los Angeles Reviews
So much nicer now! Going early is always best. Even more ideal if you get the membership so you can get the early entrance privilege. They have yummy snacks at their kiosk and the bird show is so worth it. Love that we have our own world class zoo.
I really loved this place, it brought the child out in me! We attended here with our nieces and nephews. Very big zoo, I absolutely loved the petting zoo. My top favorite are the Gorillas, Elephants and Chimps. We were able to get really close and interact with the animals. Amazing experience.
I'm normally a big proponent for the LA Zoo. I'm a zoo member and have had a membership for the last 6 years. This was my first visit in quite a while however. I still rate it highly but I think just a few areas hurt my experience. I enjoy photographing the animals and in a few ways this has gotten even harder. There sometimes appear to be fewer animals of a given breed on display. This reduces the chances of getting a good view of an animal breed/species at any given time. I also noticed late in the day that the jaguar didn't appear to be on display (could have been brought in for the day). I was never impressed with the visibility in that enclosure, but the one place I had good luck getting photos in the past is now useless because the vegetation growth now blocks the view. I suspect that the animal inventory was reduced because of ever changing zoo requirements that recommend more and more space per animal. Overall however, I still believe it's a wonderful place and a great experience for kids and anyone else that loves or takes an interest in animals. They also try to show to show case various plant life around the facility.
Has all the traditional animals, elephants, apes, lions, tigers, giraffes, you name it. Super reasonable prices especially if you get a membership. The special events like Easter bunny, Halloween boo at the zoo, etc are worth the price of a season pass. The Brew at the zoo and 80s 90s nights are awesome dates. I've heard some people complain about it being dirty or sad looking animals but each time I ask they say they haven't been in years. Maybe it was that way but since 2015 it's been pretty amazing.
This is one of the nicest Zoos I have been to. They are clearly in the business to help the conservation of our natural resources and endangered animals. If you are thinking about visiting here, consider purchasing a membership. The money will be well spent and you can be guaranteed that the money goes to the actual conservation of species, habitats and environments around the world. You can do your part by recycling your plastics, using reusable plastic bags and water bottles. If you see trash on the ground that can be recycled nearby, do your part to save the environment, don't wait for someone else to do it. Make America Great Again!
