Being a Tampa native, I've seen our zoo (Lowry Park) grow into the showpiece it is today. Not only does it have state-of-the-art facilities for all of the animals within the park but it also has something for every member of the family. I recently spent 3 separate mornings there with my 19 month old grandson and then returned this... More

Went to the zoo this past weekend with the family. As always, free parking at the zoo. Park is kept up well and employees are friendly. Best deal is to get a yearly pass and then in Sept you get free admission to MOSI and The Florida Aquarium. My only complaint would be that their food and snack prices have... More

For a family of five we are always looking for the best bang for our buck. Lowry Park Zoo fit the bill. We drove from Orlando on a recommendation from a friend . we opted to do other things than the Disney money machine. Lowery Park is a family friendly environment. Although we were there in January 2014 we arrived... More

was very impressed with the park, however they need to hire a few more professional looking people, seen some careless and lazy people not working there though they were getting paid to be working.

In May we went and visited the zoo for the first time. We really enjoyed it! Spent the whole day there and stayed till closing. We enjoyed it so much we ended up bringing friends back last week and did the Premium Beind the Scenes Tour. It is so worth it, the experience of seeing the animals close up was... More

I went here for my birthday, and on your birthday you get in free! I got my husband and daughter a Living Social deal, so they got in for $26 total. This zoo is awesome. It's small, so you aren't exhausted walking round it all, and you get great views of the animals. You can buy a cup of nectar... More

This place is beautifully landscaped and the animals are so well cared for! The employees are super friendly, the gift shop has a wide selection of souvenirs to choose from which are not outrageously priced, and the kids loved the water fountain near the entrance. Tons of different animals to look at, and you can pay a few dollars to... More

Lowry Zoo has been one of my most favorite yearly visits. They keep adding new attractions or rides each year. I believe the animals are well kept, and they have enough things to do to keep the little ones busy. There are a few splash pads around the park to keep cool. You can ride the amusement park rides for... More
