It is a while since we last visited, It is not my favorite zoo but great for kids.
Recognized as the #1 family-friendly Zoo in the United States by Child magazine, Tampa’s Lowery Park Zoo features more than 1,700 animals on 56 acres of lush, natural habitats in seven main exhibit areas: Asian Domain, Primate World, Manatee and Aquatic Center, Native Florida Wildlife Center, Free-Flight Aviary, Wallaroo Station children’s zoo, and the new Safari Africa.
For the young and young at heart, Tampa’s Lowery Park Zoo offers many interactive experiences to help teach the value of the living world firsthand. Visitors can feed giraffe, stingrays and take a ride on a Dromedary camel or pony. In Safari Africa, zoo goers can soar across the zoo on the Skyfari sky ride or hop aboard the Safari Ride for a guided tour. Also at the zoo: two water play areas, educational shows, rides and restaurants.
