Old Zoo, Griffith Park

Between 1912 and 1965 this zoo occupied what is now a picnic area in Griffith Park, Los Angeles. The scenographic enclosures are now available for anyone to enter. They are arranged along the lower edge of a small escarpment, to be viewed from below. They are serviced from above, with a series of protected tunnels allowing the keepers to feed the animals. I will post some pictures of these and some of the other infrastructure (that was hidden above the enclosure) in my next post. The Zoo moved to a larger site in the park.
