All About the Los Angeles Zoo

Bring in Earth Day with a roar at the Los Angeles Zoo! The LA Zoo has been a staple in Los Angles since 1966. Home to more than 1,400 creatures from 270 different species, it’s a perfect place for the family to be immersed in wildlife. The zoo offers over 11 exhibits across 13 acres. The Rainforest of the Americas is their newest exhibit focusing on the idea that “the rainforest is a home.” If amphibians and reptiles are your thing, then check out the LAIR. From rainforest canopies to dry deserts, this exhibit has a little bit of everything. Kids will love the Winnick Family Children’s Zoo where they can explore a cave or watch for prairie dogs. Open from 10 a.m. – 5 p.m. daily, there’s always something fun to see for the whole family.
