Both single and double strollers are available for rental while you enjoy the Los Angeles Zoo. Stroller rentals are conveniently located at the International Marketplace.
- Single strollers: $7/day
- Double strollers: $11/day
Zoo visitors in need of a wheelchair can rent either a traditional wheelchair or one of our electric wheelchairs. Wheelchair rentals are conveniently located at the International Marketplace, but can be requested at the front Admissions area and a staff member will bring the wheelchair down to you.
Please be aware that electric wheelchairs are limited and are rented on a first-come, first-served basis. Because of this, we recommend that you arrive as close as possible to the Zoo’s opening time (10:00 a.m.) to secure an electric wheelchair rental. Reservations are not accepted.
- Conventional wheelchair: $6/day (plus a $25.00 cash deposit)
- Electric wheelchair: $25/day (plus a $25.00 cash deposit)
Please note that the minimum age to rent an electric wheelchair is 18. There is no age restriction on conventional wheelchair rentals.
Wear comfortable shoes! The Zoo is situated on 113 acres in Griffith Park among the foothills of the Santa Monica Mountains and there is a lot of walking to be done, so dress appropriately. Comfortable shoes are a must, and in the spring and summer months, bring sun protection such as sunglasses, parasols, hats, and sunscreen.
In the cooler fall and winter months be sure to bring a coat. The Zoo does offer its Safari Shuttle for an additional fee that will bring you to four different locations throughout the Zoo, but it is not a guided tour of exhibits. In order to see the exhibits you will need to do some walking. In addition, for parents of our youngest guests, the Zoo offers single and double strollers for rent near the admissions entrance. And for our disabled patrons, standard wheelchairs and electric conveyances are also available for rent.
Disabled parking spaces are available in the Zoo’s visitor parking lot; an official state disabled persons parking permit is required.

Visitors with Service Animals
The Los Angeles Zoo allows service animals on its premises to provide assistance to people with disabilities, in accordance with the Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA). Under the ADA, “a service animal is a dog that has been individually trained to assist a person with a disability.” If you plan to bring your service animal to the Zoo, please click here to learn more about guidelines you’ll need to be aware of to keep the trip a safe one for yourself, your service dog, the Zoo’s exhibit animals, and other patrons.
If a patron wishes to board their service dog while at the Zoo, clean and safe kennel facilities are available on Zoo grounds for the duration of the patron’s visit. Prior arrangements are encouraged, but not required. If you require more information or other assistance, please call 323/644-4200.
