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.

The zoo itself is okay. Our family just got back from the SD zoo. No comparison. This zoo is small and packed with people that dont known how to smile..little ghetto. BUT most importantly, the zoo is SWARMING withe BEES. It's crazy. We brought our subway sandwiches in with us and a couple of soft drinks. The bees could smell them from a mile away. The bees swarmed on our food like flies on s',,t. Luckily none of were stung this time. We could not concentrate on nothing but bees. Go to Santa Barbara zoo.

The zoo has been under construction for a while due to the new elephant exhibit (finally open, yay!), so I can only give it 3 stars at the moment because of some of the crowding. But overall this is a really nice zoo. The new elephant habitat is huge. The Red Ape Forest (orangutans) is a fantastic space with so many viewing opportunities. The zoo keepers are really knowledgeable and accessible, and they'll come out and do feedings during regular hours. Case in point: the hippo. We saw the hippo's jaws open wide and the zoo keeper dump about a dozen apples down his gullet (one at a time, of course), plus a melon. Pretty cool! And I have to give a shout out to the food. Churros and pizza used to be pretty much all you could get. But recently I had a very good -- and healthy -- grilled chicken sandwich with good fries. For not that expensive. Makes a big difference! Yes, some of the exhibits are a bit dated. But overall this is a well kept, nice zoo with a lot of great animals who seem to be happy enough to be relatively active when folks are visiting.

I have been to the Los Angeles zoo twice in the last six years and both times, the experience was the same. Easily 40% of the enclosures had no animals in them. Among the animals they do have, many behave in a manner that suggests they are not treated well. The zoo itself is, as other reviews have stated, laid out very poorly and with confusing signage. With San Diego not too far away, one questions the need for the LA Zoo to even exist, as poor as it is.
