Lowry Park Zoo was filled with bus loads of school kids the day we were there, which took away a bit of our satisfaction with the place. Although well-chaperoned, they traveled in clumps and often got ahead of the adults. They were younger children and tended to run you over, elbow their way in to be up close, and run. Aside from that, we did enjoy the zoo, though it was not as impressive as we'd been led to believe by a number of people. At least two areas were not open until a half hour to 3/4's of an hour after the zoo opened...no idea why. Food here was very expensive, so we opted to go without lunch and leave mid-afternoon. When we tried to purchase snacks to tide us over, we were told the things we wanted (from the sign) were not yet available. There is a baby monkey here we enjoyed, and loved the safari ride. Casey was the best guide ever! Triple A does give a discount. The zoo was clean and the employees were visible and helpful. Again, we enjoyed the talks given by employees, particularly the birds of prey demonstration. We also liked that they made a big deal about how they act as a refuge and recovery center for injured and or abandoned animals.
