While certainly not the most impressive zoo, the layout is easy to walk and most of the animals are easily seen. They are proud of the elephant exhibit, but it is way too big to see any elephants very well. Be sure to check out the monkeys and orangutangs - they are the best by far.

Nice zoo to visit. It is not as big as the San Diego Zoo, but still nice to see. I could have spent half a day to watch the tigers. The koala was sleeping but cute to see.

You'd think Los Angeles would have better zoo. We don't. It's very small compared to other City Zoos like Denver, Bronx, San Francisco. Go here only if you have nothing else to do.

I have been to zoo's all over America but the LA zoo isn't much , the enclosure for there elephants is deffinately way to small as were most of the other enclosures , after that i never went back , i just felt sorry for these majestic animals forced to live out there lives in such small spaces , if the can't provide proper conditions for ofter rare and endangered animals it shouldn't exist at all .
