Being from the UK, I didn't have the biggest expectations going to a zoo but I was nicely surprised. There are lots of talks and things to do and everyone seems really friendly... Only slight thing I would change is the size of some of the enclosures. Seems some are a little small and it makes me slightly concerned about... More

We really enjoyed this zoo. The place is clean and tidy, nicely organised with good signs and lots of information. The animals are in great condition, and in good sized enclosures. There are lots of little surprises: the children's area had a petting zoo and a splash zone, there's a mother & baby relaxing area, there's conservation info about the... More

The Lowry Park Zoo is a fun place to take kids and enjoy a day of watching animals and making memories. It also has interactive areas throughout the parl along with a splash area and rides. No outside food can be brought in, but they do have snacks for purchase.

Plenty of animals to see in nice surroundings. We chose to visit Lowry Zoo instead Disney Animal Kingdom in Orlando, mainly because of the high prices at Disney. We didn't know what to expect but were glad of our choice. There's plenty to do and see for all ages and particular good for families. Food and drink isn't expensive and... More

I had visited this zoo 20 years ago and was suprised at the upgrade that had been done to it. It is wonderful for children and adults of all ages. The animals living areas are clean and the animals appear to be taken good care of. Well worth a visit if you are in the Tampa area.

It was a great day out - and part of our Tampa City Pass.... We had a full day here, there was loads to do with plenty of animals and information to keep the kids (and our!) attention. So many times we have been to places like this where you get stung for eating a 'proper' meal but I have... More

We went to this zoo based on the high reviews.. but wow… Most of the attraction were closed. Not many animals.. lots of birds.. the zoo itself looks very nice but you can tell that is going bankrupt or something.. it has a lot of potential but for $25 I would expect a lot nicer zoo.. At least with more... More
