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.
The next famous exhibit is of the wide variety of Asian elephants of mainly Thailand, India and China. The elephant enclosure includes a research and medical housing. The elephants are assorted in groups to help in the classification based on their continental or territorial coverage. The third largest exhibition is of the Botanical Gardens, which houses more than 800 species and varieties of plants worldwide.

A great adventure for families or individuals. The terrain is good for walking, not hard to push a stroller around. Best to go on overcoat days, more animals are out & about. Have good choices for eats & drinks, staff are friendly & helpful. Animal caretakers are also friendly & knowledgeable. I feel a real nice deal for the money.
This Zoo is perfect for outings with a toddler. If you're not rushed you can leisurely walk through the zoo, letting your little one stop and sit on the low benches or climb on the rocks. We spend two hours here and try and arrive by 11 am to catch the zoo keepers feeding animals. All the feeding seems to be complete by 12:30. We love the monkeys, giraffes and the rain forest habitat with the aquarium and sea otters. Bring snacks since its mostly fast food in the park.
Good exercise as the exhibits are spaced apart fairly far from each other. Wish some exhibits were closer to the front of the zoo. Giraffes and otters seem like the happiest animals. Don't go if you're most interested in seeing lions. The lions need more space to roam and are sleeping on 95% of our visits.
This review is specific to the holidays. I don't know what I can say beyond look at my pictures. This place is fantastic. The lighting displays are out of this world. So many unique colors and designs and they have some real cutting edge lighting displays that must be seen to be believed. Many of the displays are choreographed with music. Take a ride on the carousel listening to holiday music. This is a great way to spend an evening and it will really get you in the spirit. As an added bonus, many of the shops have unique holiday items for sale.
Always fun. great place for walks. The elephants are nice. Love the giraffes. A lot of areas have been remodeled. If you are local I think it's best to get the year pass .
