In preparation for Christmas, the old zoo in Griffith Park is decorated with "Zoo Lights" in the form of artificial animals. A holiday in the Zoo invites visitors to walk along the festively illuminated site on foot. Although most animals are asleep, you can see deer and take a picture with Santa. There are lighted elephant statues, giant glowing snowflakes, a disco-beam forest, sparkling light tunnels, an exciting show of "water and light," a festive interpretation of Los Angeles attractions, and much more.
This enchanting show's illuminations and beloved animals are waiting for you from late November to early January. The park is closed at Christmas, as well as other possible occasions, so check the opening hours before you go.
