Lowery Parl Zoo Tampa 7/14/2006

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. more

Still love this place. 4/22/2006

When we lived in Tampa we would go to Lowry Park Zoo and enjoy the animals. This is a totally different experience to the animals at Busch Gardens. Lowry Park Zoo is very kid friendly and is easy to walk. I always love the big cats but you will see a good variety of animals. Hungry or thirsty? Then you can get a bite to eat. Of course there is the gift shop to get those last few dollars from you. I do like the kiddies amusement area for the little ones. So if you are heading south on Busch Blvd. you just may want to make the turn for Lowry Park Zoo. more

Charming Local Zoo 3/29/2006

Lowry Park Zoo really has turned into a great success story. Great improvements have been made in the past 5 years or so and the exhibs are really nice. The grounds are always clean and the admission price is low. Although it may not be the biggest zoo it is a really nice place for little ones and caters to entertainment for young children. Dont missunderstand me though, this zoo is definately entertaining for any age. more

Nice Local Zoo 12/9/2005

This zoo has a lot of exhibits where animals are in their natural environments. There is a manatee exhibit where you can see the animals above and below the water. They have a great bird exhibit where you pay a small fee for bird seed and the birds will fly up to you and eat the food out of your hand.They have a petting zoo for the younger children.They have a few kiddie rides for an extra fee.They also have camel and horse rides for an extra fee. It comes out cheaper if you purchase a ride bracelet so the children can go on the rides as many times as they like.There is a McDonalds restaurant inside the park.This is a great zoo for the entire family. more

The best zoo 12/5/2005

This zoo has so much to see and do you may have to go several times to get the full experience. They are constantly adding on to the park too. There are an assortment of animals, from sea life, to African safari. Some of the animals are in air conditioned buildings. They have a large merry go round for the kids in all kinds of animal shapes. There is a water section to cool down. more

nice place to visit for the day 11/23/2005

You can purchase a day pass or season passes here. They have many different animal exhibits to see here. They have manatees, rhinos, and many other animal exhibits here. It is a nice place to relax and have a slow paced day. They only have 1 ride here that you have to pay for, the merry go round. We went here a few years ago for the zoo boo where the dressed the park up with several different haunted houses. it was really neat to be in the park at night and take a haunted hayride. I suggest checking it out with the family. more

great zoo for all ages 11/22/2005

The Lowry park zoo is such a wonderful place. They have a variety of animals and it is kept so clean! They offer yearly passes which are very inexpensive as well. My children love this zoo! They have a lot of activities for children as well. The gift shops are moderately overpriced but they offer a wide selection of souvenirs. There are a few restuarants and little kiosks along the walways that offer very good food. Prices are reasonable. more

Wonderful Zoo 10/26/2005

This is a wonderful zoo to visit with my family and friends. Kids and adults alike had a great time. My kids had such a good time riding the camels and observing the other animals. The staff was knowledgeable and kind. I do suggest visiting during the cooler months because the heat can be awful during the summer. more

Great zoo 8/21/2005

We had a wonderful time at Lowry Park Zoo a few months ago. The park is a great size and has awesome exhibits. There is a small petting zoo for the kids too. My son was in awe with the elephants and tigers. They always have something going on...lots of special events. My favorite place was the Safari Africa. The fees are reasonable and you have the opportunity to feed certain animals (for a very small fee). It is a great place to go for all ages. more

Excellent for the little ones. 8/20/2005

Nice zoo for the little ones. If your little one loves the water he/she may cool off in the water fountain located in the middle of the park. The zoo has a good variety of animals. Plus the souvenirs that are nice display. They also have their own Mc Donald’s inside this park. more

Lowry Park Zoo 8/18/2005

A wonderful way to spend a day. The exhibits are pretty interesting and there are quite a lot of them. I suggest you try bringing some water along as they charge the usual insane rates for food and drink as any place. They have a great variety of animals, and the layout is easy to navigate. more

LIke the zoo 8/11/2005

This is the place to take the family to. You can spend all day here. I love going here with my family. We are animal lovers & this is the perfect place for us. They have recently changed a bit. They now have rides for the little kids. The prices are great. The year pass is worth it! more

Nice mid size zoo 8/5/2005

It's a little smelly but aren't all zoos? This one is a great value, lots of wildlife both local and exotic packed in a reasonable size. You can do the whole zoo in 90 minutes or stretch it out to take an entire day. The fountains in the front are a favorite for kids, and I personally like the huge aviary and the tamarinds and marmosets the best. more

Great day of fun 8/5/2005

We took the whole family and had a blast! They had many exhibits and areas of interest to children. The animals are well cared for and they have a good variety of species. They also have a water area where children can cool off from the hot Florida weather. Will returning again and frequently. The kids liked to ride the camel the most. more

Nice afternoon at the local zoo 8/5/2005

Lowry Park has grown considerably over the past several years. If you haven't attended since the mid 80's I would definitely recommend a visit! The zoo has all of the typical zoo animals that you would expect to find with nicely decorated pathways and seating areas at most displays. There is a petting zoo for the little kids as well as a free flight aviary. Check the newspaper and website for any offers or promotions. If you are planning to visit more than once, consider a family annual pass. more
