Old Los Angeles Zoo

Griffith Park | 0 comments

Address: Spring Canyon, Griffith Park, CA

Located in Griffith Park, less than a mile away from the current LA Zoo, lies the abandoned Old LA Zoo. Waze “Spring Canyon” to get here – it’s the name of the parking lot opposite the hill that leads you up to the empty exhibits (bottom, upper left photo). There are a plethora of picnic tables in case you want to sit for a snack. Walk freely in & out of enclosures, imagining what life was like for the lions and bears that once lived here. Make sure to check out the row of relic cages further up the path, unlocked and ideal for playful photos (bottom right photo).
