I will always have an affinity for zoo's so don't expect the harsh critic in me to come out when reviewing the Los Angeles Zoo. I must say though, I had a great time when I went. Recently revamped from what I but am unable to compare as I never visited the old zoo. I have been to many zoo throughout the world and I must say it holds its own. Los Angeles is a major world city. How can it not have a great zoo. It still doesn't compare to San Diego zoo as that one is inherently the best zoo in the world but hey had a lot to offer. The enclosures were large and spacious for the bigger animals and the floor plan was laid out well. Enough to keep you guessing after a full day there but you can leave with confidence that you covered most the grounds and attractions. I hate paying $5 for a bottle of Dasani though.

For the most part the zoo was good. I went a month or so ago and they had a week old baby Hippo! So cute. They also had koala bears, kangaroos, foxes, elephants and an incredible gorilla exhibit. However, the main reason I went to the zoo was to see the lions. They had a beautiful male lion and a lioness. But their exhibit was pathetic. I just felt so bad for them. The lions had a small, flat exhibit with no rocks and very little plants. It was mostly just dirt with a small concrete patch. The water was disgusting. The whole exhibit was surrounded with a rock mural, but not one rock in the exhibit for them to climb.

The last time I was at the LA Zoo was probably when I was in a stroller or in a classroom field trip! The day I went was the worst day to go! It was 90 degrees in the valley with tons of families and crying babies. The highlight was seeing Elmo and Cookie Monster! I feel bad for most of the animals because they are either bored or sleeping. The most favorite animals was the koalas and giraffes. Parking is $5. There's a pinic area to hang out for rest time and food you can bring in a cooler. If you have kids, I recommend the yearly pass, it's a deal to show and remind your kids the zoo. Overall, I would go back just to hang out with the kids but not a regular thing.

Waste of Money! Don't spend a dime on this experience.. Not worth it! Light Show is not what you expect it to be. Go around aton and you will see better light decorations ,. In addition there was no light show, but a light decoration and lots of vendors to make money on you!

It was awesome! I loved the animals and it was great. I also got a caricature and it was great! It looked exactly like me and exactly how I wanted it. I might go back to get more!

I love the LA zoo! I always have a blast when I come. I would avoid this place during the summer as it tends to be overcrowded and it’s too hot for the animals (and most humans) anyways. The best time to go is either really early in the year or really late. They are constantly trading animals with other zoos to find mates for their animals which means babies are constantly being born. I want to go just to see all the new babies! Parking is “free” but you need either need to park really far or loop around the lot for awhile. They have valet parking for $7 too.

I cannot believe the LA Zoo would be this aweful!! the animals are ALL sleeping or bored out of their minds, the exhibits are basic cages, not a lot of variety of animals, and you cant even see a lot of the animals 90% of the time because they're hiding from the heat, or the animal died and they never replaced it. If you want an AMAZING zoo experience and u happen to be in Toronto, Canada: check out the Toronto zoo!!! if you consider the LA Zoo a zoo, Toronto zoo will blow ur mind.

Came here on a Sunday with the kids and I have to say we had an amazing time. It's a great place to spend a day seeing and learning about the animals. If you want to get a work out and have fun while doing it then the L.A. Zoo is the place to go.
