If you are not a huge fan of crowds and Busch Gardens, then you may love this place. The zoo is small and well kept. The kids will love seeing all the animals.

Then afterwards go to the ride area. You pay for each ride and it doesn't cost a fortune.

If you live in the Tampa area then get a years pass. I think the last one I bought was around $45.

We've been visiting Lowry Park Zoo for 5 years and we are amazed at all the new things they have added! The Austrailian-themed kid zoo is an absolute favorite of our four children, and the Africa section is becoming the adult favorite. As the zoo no longer offers reciprocal free admission with annual passes from other zoos, they now offer a 50% discount, we visit less often as even at 50% off admission is steep for a family of six. That said, we would rather save our pennies and visit LPZ than any other zoo in Florida!

PROS: Way cool!
CONS: Expensive, no reciprocal free admission

We love Lowry Park Zoo! This Zoo is filled with so many exhibits as well as interactive things to do. You can ride a camel, feed a giraffe, pet stingrays or ride a carasoul. A great way to spend a day.

This zoo is rated one of the best in the nation for many good reasons. Being in south Florida, it is designed with wheelchairs in mind; this is an asset when you have strollers. They have an excellent assortment of animals. The giraffe exhibit actually gives you the option of feeding them. If the kids tire of the animals, they have two playgrounds - one for preschoolers, the other for larger children - to play in. The parrots/parakeets in their enclosure can be fed. Note: if you feed the birds, they are not only tame, but can be aggressive.

PROS: wide range of activities, highly interactive
CONS:

We've been to the zoo numerous times since we bacame members last April. No matter the time of year, the zoo is always bustling with people. They have wonderful exhibits and things for the little ones. I love the water park area int he summer time. It is not very expensive and with a membership, you get little extras. Can't wait to take my son again and when his little brother due this fall comes, we'll be taking him as well!

They have a huge array of animals that the whole family will enjoy. Their kids area is amazing and offers many things for them to play around on and cool off on those hot summer days. The carousel is also a must. Lowry often offers $2 and $3 admission days, which can get crowded, but a definite bargain. If you're on vacation in Tampa or just live in the area--this park should be on your itinerary.

My family loves the Zoo. Many wonderful exhibits. We love the manatees. They have recently added new areas. There is an water area for the children to play in bathingsuits. Plenty of parking. A McDonalds is among the many places to eat there. Definately worth the trip.

One of Tampa's best kept secrets is Lowry Park Zoo, for a fraction of the cost of a trip to Busch Gardens, your children will enjoy an amazing zoo full of animals from across the world as well as those local to Florida habitat. There is a petting zoo for younger children, and various events year long. They have an incredible manatee aquarium and interactive exhibits.

There is so much to do at Lowry Park Zoo. Both adults and kids will have fun visiting all of the animals. The zoo often has coupons and specials for Florida residence. The areas are kept clean (for a zoo) and the staff is friendly. Don't forget your sunscreen!

They have all types of exbits w/ animals of all types. My favorite thing that they have done is the ZOO BOO. Around Halloween they have Haunted Houses and Trails through the park. It is fun for the whole family. They also have a school program here. There is a waiting list for the school program but it is worth it. The children love to learn about the animals.

I have visited Lowry Park Zoo Approx 8-9 times now, in the past 2 years. Every visit is better then the first! My family and i very much enjoy every moment at the zoo, theres always new attractions and exciting new things. Anytime we have family come to visit we always take them to Lowry Park to show off we have such a wonderful zoo in the area. You can beat the prices to get in, yet they did go up slightly but its still worth every penny and more we will be long time visitors to Lowry Park Zoo, Highly Recommended!

PROS: The Monkeys and so much fun to watch! So many fun things!
CONS: Food's outrageous in price but it always is anywhere, Need more rides!

I have been too a lot of zoos in my life, and this is definitely by far one of the very best!

They have a wide variety of animals featured, from apes to lions, from birds to fish. I could stand there all day and watch the monkeys mess with each other -- they are so funny! Another amazing animal you won't want to miss is the endangered manatee. Also known as sea cows, these creatures are so precious and amusing to watch. There is so much for a family to do, and all ages will thoroughly enjoy all the wonderful things that the Lowry Park Zoo has to offer, from animals to playgrounds, and so much more!

I have been to many zoos and Lowry Park far outshines them all.

In addition to the typical zoo displays of lions, monkeys and elephants, they boast a riverboat ride down the Hillborough River which gives a nice look at Florida wildlife. There is a wonderful childrens area based on the Austrailian Outback complete with pony rides, a few lazy kangaroos, some singing coyotes, a petting area, kiddie rides, and water spraying everywhere for the kids to splash in. Best of all, the new displays being introduced every year or so give the animals room to run. I was amazed to watch as elephants were able to run across a field, as giraffes and other animals played by a natural looking water hole.

This zoo is a must see.
