For those who think theres not much to see... 7/6/2010

If you think this zoo has not much to see, you probably don't have a lot to compare it to. The Orlando zoo is located in Sanford. It takes all of about an hour to see every exibit. Lowry Park is awesome! It has a huge variety of animals, lots of things to keep the interest of children, and the concessions are tasty! Coming from the land of the mouse (Disney), I can honestly say that this is a good value for the price. Pros: well laid out, clean and good food! Cons: a little pricey, but worth it! more

Perfect size zoo for the whole family! 9/30/2008

My wife & I took our 3-year old nephew here in March of this year, and we all had a great time! The first thing I noticed was how clean and well-manicured the grounds were; not a piece of paper anywhere. There's a wide variety of animals, from meerkats, to giraffes and elephants; there's even a huge aquarium with manatees. The zoo is small enough to go through within a couple hours, yet the animal displays are relatively large & open. We all got a good laugh when an angry chimp flung dirt at me (yes I'm sure it was only dirt, not something else lol). Our only disappointment was that the tiger display was being renovated, although we did get to see a cheetah. There's an Austrailian-themed petting zoo where kids can actually walk through a kangaroo area & interact with them. Highly recommend for all ages! Pros: perfect size zoo for the whole family, clean grounds, good value Cons: none! more

Not much to see! 10/15/2006

I realize that this is the only zoo in the area, therefore, Lowry does not need to worry about competition, however, the number of exhibits and overall condition of the park facilities are sub-par for the size of Tampa Bay. At least hire a few people to clean the place! Pros: The animals seem healthy! Cons: The park is dirty and uninspired! more

Fun for kids of all ages 12/8/2002

I would definitely recommend this to all. There are many fun things for kids of all ages. The water ""play"" is nice and refreshing on a hot day. The petting zoo, is also fun, stinky yes, but fun. Another bonus, a McDonalds in the zoo! And don't forget the rides on the backs of camels. But, the restrooms really need some work - they are repulsive. Pros: Convenient, Animal Interaction, Fun for kids Cons: Restroom dirty, parking more

A Day with the animals! 8/27/2002

Great place for kids. Weekdays are nice, avoid the lines. No problem with parking during the week. A little pricey considering the size of the zoo, but worth it. Bring a change of clothes for your child if your kid likes to get wet in the fountains. Pros: Nice setting, Great for kids, Feeding the animals Cons: Price more

new at the zoo! 7/31/2002

It's always a new experience at the Lowry Park Zoo, which improves every year. Although not as large as zoos in other cities, it has an excellant variety of animals, birds and reptiles. Best of all, they are presented in a close approximation of their natural habitat. Not to be missed is the aviary where you are inside with a multitude of exotic birds that have no fear of eating from your hand. Pros: Inexpensive Cons: limited hours more

Nice 7/26/2002

Nice zoo right in the middle of Tampa. There's something there for everyone. more
