Los Angeles Zoo and its collection

Los Angeles Zoo

The Los Angeles Zoo and Botanical Gardens, founded in 1966, is a 133-acre park located in the city of Los Angeles, Southern California. The city of Los Angeles owns the entire zoo, its land, facilities, and animals. It offers a unique combination of a zoo and botanical gardens, providing visitors with the opportunity to explore a diverse range of animal species and plant life in one location.

History of the Los Angeles Zoo

The first zoo in Los Angeles, known as Griffith Park Zoo, was opened in 1912. It was located two miles south of the current zoo site. However, it was closed in August 1966, and the Los Angeles Zoo and Botanical Gardens was established in its current location later that year. The history of the zoo adds to the rich cultural heritage of Los Angeles.
