A prime attraction of the Los Angeles, the Los Angeles Zoo is a later addition to the Los Angeles.

My family loves animals of all varieties and the zoo is especially wonderful to us! My oldest turned ten today and he and his friends had a fantastic time along with their younger siblings as well. Thank you so much
Excellent zoo. Lots of different types of exotic animals. Very wooded. Excellent food services. Be prepared to stay at least four hours. It's a bit difficult to navigate, very confusing layout. But you will enjoy it anyway.
I've been coming here, since I was a kid, and the zoo is just great. GLAZA does very good work, and the staff at the park are nice. Thank you to the medical teams for the couple of times I had to ask advice for my friend's rescue park in the amazon. They helped out greatly, and it just goes to reinforce their awesomeness. Keep up the great work. GO PLANET!
Located in Griffith Park. Tons of animals. Lots of walking. Small play park if you have kids. Petting zoo with sheep and goats. The World of Birds show is always entertaining. Big parking lot, but it fills up fast. Come early to avoid crowds. Bring a backpack with food and water so you don't have to rely on overpriced zoo offerings. Don't forget sun screen.
I decided to do LA Zoo over San Diego Zoo because of price. The entry to the zoo was US$12.00 which is inexpensive once you are inside and see the amount of enclosures they have. I spent most of the day wondering around all the enclosures and towards closing, I still had not seen all the animals. The souvenirs are reasonably priced and the overall atmosphere is great. The layout was quiet easy to follow and the availability of the service train was great when you needed to get to the other side of the zoo quickly.
