Everyone In Hawaii Should See What’s Inside The Gates Of This Abandoned Zoo
The United States of America is home to countless sites that have been abandoned, some for just a few years and others for centuries. The Hawaiian Islands are no exception. And while you will find countless abandoned spots throughout the islands —from roads and neighborhoods to schools and telegraph stations — there is perhaps no place more fascinating than the abandoned Paradise Park, an exotic bird zoo on the island of Oahu that was abandoned and left to battle nature in the early 1990s.
