The Remnants Of This Abandoned Zoo In Southern California Are Hauntingly Beautiful

If you’ve lived in Southern California long enough, you may recall that the Los Angeles Zoo was once located in Griffith Park. It opened in 1912 and was a popular spot for kids and families until it closed in 1965. Instead of tearing down the original structures, they were left standing and still remain on the property today. It makes for an eerie tour to walk through this old zoo that was once bustling with life. Here’s a glimpse of what it looks like today; it’s a fascinating exploration that will make this zoo visit one you won’t soon forget.

What an interesting piece of Southern California history. This spot makes for a perfect day trip for walking and exploring, so head to LA for the day and take a look around. If you remember this zoo from the past before it was closed, we would love to hear from you so please share your memories in the comments.
