Great place to go with kids or even just the adults. They have a variety of animals & a shuttle that you can take around. They have multiple places to eat located in the different areas. I just wish there was more signage around. I've been so many times & yet I still get turned around easily.
They recently put a Dino area in. It's very cute & fun. They also have events throughout the year. Some are members only, but it's neat to go.
We love the LA zoo! My kids are always entertained while it has lots of walking which is great exercise for mamas!!! He snake liar is great a little warm inside on hot days. The howler monkeys are my kids favorite.
Love coming to this Zoo with my family. The Lair is always a favorite and the small ice cream stand just before the marketplace is our last stop each visit for the best ice cream cones in the zoo. They even have a Starbucks, but beware it is not a full Starbucks and it's not open first thing in the morning as you might expect.
The LA Zoo is a fun place for the whole family to enjoy! I love all of the updates and new exhibits, but I would like to see an update to the food as well. Not everyone packs a lunch or wants a cheeseburger or chicken strips. A few of the smaller places never seem to be open when we are there.
Love the zoo! Our favorite thing is the Condor center which is open on weekends and Fridays. We're also very excited about the Australia nocturnal house being open again. It's come a long way with the new lair and rainforest of the Americas. It's a great zoo!
The membership pricing is very inexpensive, I love how big this place is, not a fan of the hills and bummed that a lot of the animals are in hiding. The new Elephant exhibition is a must, wish they let us feed Giraffes.membership appreciation nights a fun but very crowded.
A bit dated, but they're making improvements and putting in some new exhibits. I suggest getting here as soon as the place opens in the morning, because later in the day the place becomes, well, a ZOO.
I have such great memories at the zoo with my boy. We came every weekend for 2-3 years. Great place to get some exercise while walking around.
Great place to take the kids! My daughter loves watching the animals and especially enjoys the petting zoo. On the weekends it can be quite busy; however, there are several volunteer offering close up experiences with small animals such as lizards and hedgehogs. On top of all that they serve beer.
I like the fact that the elephant enclosure is really big but some of the other animal enclosures seem rather small. The day we came, the poor leopard was pacing back and forth and did not seem comfortable. As an artist that draws animals, I like coming here to sketch rather than looking at pictures on the web. It’s still a nice zoo with a lot of beautiful flora.
