Now that the Southern California regional health order has been lifted, the L.A. Zoo has announced it will be reopening on Tuesday, Feb. 16.

Entrance will be by appointment only, with limited capacity in accordance to the current Public Health order. After making the reservation for a time slot, an e-ticket may be scanned by phone or paper printout.

There will also be COVID-19 health measures in place, such as mandatory face coverings, 6-feet of social distancing, modified foot traffic flow, no cash payment accepted, dedicated hand sanitizer stations and additional cleaning procedures.

As is the case with all of L.A. County, indoor dining will not be permitted and guests will be asked to eat in place to avoid interactions without face coverings.

The zoo will also have certain exhibits closed and has temporarily done away with speaking presentations from staff.

Tickets for the zoo are currently $22 for guests 13 and older, $17 for children 2 to 12 and free for Children under the age of 2. Children under 2 are also not required to wear face coverings.
