Time Out says

The Los Angeles Zoo reopens on August 26 with timed reservations required. All guests will need to wear face coverings and practice physical distancing, and credit is preferred over cash for food and retail purchases. Most animal exhibits will be open, but indoor areas (like LAIR or the condor rescue zone), feedings, talks and playgrounds (including the carousel), among other activities, will remain closed. Reservations go on sale starting August 19 at noon.

The L.A. Zoo’s greatest asset is its location in the isolated hills of Griffith Park. It’s a pretty popular place, but the zoo’s size—80 acres, plus a huge parking lot—means that it rarely feels busy. If you want to visit, it’s worth bearing in mind that some of the larger animals may seek shady refuge from the extreme heat on warm summer days, and by no means will all of them be visible. Though the fauna is the main attraction, don’t miss out on the flora: There’s not a separate botanical garden area here, but you will find over 800 different plant species, from native succulents to prehistoric cycads, labeled and catalogued throughout the zoo’s continentally-themed habitats.
