The old Los Angeles Zoo was open from 1912 to 1965 before moving to its current location. I actually remember going to this Zoo as a young child.
I like that they've left many of the old structures in place, and turned it into a family picnic area. Some of the old stairways used by the keepers to get to the back of the grottos are covered in colorful graffiti. They are supposedly fenced off, but there are lots of holes in the fencing. We saw several groups using it as a location for photos and videos when we stopped by on our way home from Universal Studios in April.

- About me . . . When I'm not working I like to be out exploring and photographing. I do this blog just for fun, and to be able to share these images with friends. I hope you enjoy viewing these images as much as I enjoyed creating them.
