We made a quick visit to the abandoned LA Zoo recently. It’s not nearly as remote or abandoned as most articles on the internet would lead you to believe. Part of the present day Griffith Park, the abandoned zoo is now a picnic area and hiking trail. Much of the area was decorated for Halloween while we were there with a haunted hayride and various carnival style events. Many of the animal habitats had been incorporated into the hayride but we still had the opportunity to wander through a few. If you’re in the area this area is well worth checking out.
