  • The original LA zoo opened in 1912 about two miles north of this location until it opened here in 1966. This location originally contained housing for veterans returning from WWII until the mid-1950s
  • The two ocelots are worth checking out before kids area and to the left area from Giraffes are the servals - good that they now have a male and female to keep each other company
  • Annual zoo membership is one of the best deals for families in L.A.!
  • The food at the zoo isn't great. If you're hungry head across the street to the Autry Museum. There's a bigger selection and healthier options.
  • Be at the gate when the zoo opens. Head to the back of the zoo and work your way forward. Try to see everything by noon and then head out as the mass of visitors comes pouring through the entrance.
  • The LAIR is the newest exhibit at the zoo and well worth visiting!
  • Get here at 10 when thy open.
  • Chimps get pretty wild and crazy around lunch feed time. Playground is good picnic spot. Bring your own snacks, concessions are nothing to Woot about.
  • The beer and wine really help take the edge off the screaming children
  • Zoo's exhibit are simply amazing plus try their churros stand.
  • They have a serious bee/trash problem- it's a health hazard. Not impressed and won't be back.
  • Filthy, neglected and ill-maintained. Disappointing.
  • Food is pricy, buy the collector cup it's worth it. You can get free refills at the big stand if no one sees you. LOL. I should know, I work here haha
  • Parking is free, and the zoo is awesome... Great place on a day like today....
  • If you take Alma to the elephants she will smile and giggle.
  • Don't miss the Winnick's Family Children Zoo area, not just a petting zoo! Lots of fun. A nursery, a cave to explore, more animals!
  • , . , "". , .
  • Get here by 10 before the crowd
  • Free parking! Beer carts! Almonds!
  • Reptile Lair and the primate sections are my favorite.
