The Los Angeles Zoo opened on November 28, 1966 after three years of fund raising by the Greater Los Angeles Zoo Association. The zoo is owned and operated by the City of Los Angeles and is 133 acres in size.

The Los Angeles Zoo houses over 1,100 different species of mammals, birds, reptiles, and amphibians. The zoo is also home to over 800 different species of plants. Some of the noteworthy exhibits that the zoo has on display are The Red Ape Rainforest, which allows visitors to get up close and personal with several orangutans from Southeast Asia. The Los Angeles Zoo recently opened the Elephants of Asia, a sprawling six-acre enclosure dedicated to Asian elephants. The zoo also boasts one of the largest captive flocks of flamingos in the world, if pink waterfowls are more your speed.

Parking at the zoo is free, and the Los Angeles Zoo is open from ten in the morning to five in the evening on every day of the year except for December 25th, Christmas Day. It's a great place to spend an afternoon.
