Griffith Observatory
Posted on: 2007-11-01

Two exciting new developments are occuring during the month of November 2007 at Griffith Park. Beginning on November 3, 2007, the Griffith Park Observatory will allow visitors to drive directly to the Observatory without prior reservation and visit the stunningly remodeled art deco palace with its many exhibits and fantastic planetarium show! Guests will no longer be required to take shuttle buses or pay the $8 reservation fee.

The other much-anticipated develoment is the opening of the Campo Gorilla Reserve at the Los Angeles Zoo. Four years and $19M in the making, the exhibit features waterfalls and tropical plants in a natural-forested setting that mimics the animal’s natural habitat. The new exhibit will be open to the public on November 6, 2007.
