Comments about Smart Destinations Los Angeles Zoo and Botanical Gardens:
- Free parking! - Less than $10 for a mediocre lunch at the Zoo Grill. - Exhibits not involving water were pretty well kept and clean. - Exhibits involving water smelled but same as most Zoo's I've been to. - Many of the animals were hiding and we did not see them. Best to go earlier. - Lots of walking, but luckily there are many shaded areas. - Took about two hours for us to go through the whole zoo. - Went on a weekday afternoon so there were not too many people. - Bathroom was clean and well stocked. Wasn't the best zoo in the world, but it was good enough, and a great cheap way to spend a couple hours!
