Owner description: ZooTampa at Lowry Park is home to more than 1300 animals and famous for having one of the most beautiful, tropical zoological settings in the world. The Zoo brings together animals and visitors to create unforgettable, natural connections. Guests get closer to wildlife than ever before by touching a giant tortoise, feeding a giraffe, getting nose-to-horn with an Indian rhino, hand-to-fin with slippery stingrays and more! Families can also splash in water play areas, feel thrills on rides and take in educational shows. Love manatees? The Zoo is the only place in Tampa where guests can see Florida manatees year round. At the David A. Straz Jr. Manatee Hospital, the Zoo’s veterinary and animal-care staff treat sick, injured and orphaned manatees, and return them to the wild after rehabilitation. The Zoo also cares for the most diverse group of Florida wildlife anywhere, and has won numerous awards for animal preservation.

This was a wonderful place to visit. We spent the whole day. All the animals where healthy and clean, and there was a lot to see. Plan to take my Grand kids in the fall. This is a must if your in the area. It was a lot of fun at a fair price!

Although many of the rides and some of the attractions were closed for reno's, the various animals, mantees and kids splash park/rides area made the day a success. The highlight was the ability to feed the giraffes lettuce, which was a hit for my fearless 2 year old. Allow 4 or more hours to see most of the park.

Liked the fact that you don't have to walk very far to see the animals and they are close by. Also like all the feedings available and the bird fly over.

I loved everything! I especially loved the rare bird exhibit. So colorful and beautiful! It felt like we were in a forest with the waterfalls. The safari, the monkeys, manatees, giraffes, and other rare beautiful animals. The food was great. Bonus, I got an autograph from former Yankees player Travis Haffner! I want to take my grandson there! Great experience.
