ZooTampa at Lowry Park reviews
Not good. Grandparents purchased season tickets so as to take 3+ year old granddaughter. Banana ride is broken. Train ride now requires minimum 40" height and adults no longer allowed. Besides the... more »
Loved the manatees! There are lots of neat exhibits in 5-6 different sections. The Florida part is not really open yet. Not worth it to walk the whole route just to see a few animals. more »
It has been a couple years since we visited the zoo and we're pleased with some of the changes. The venue is nice and clean still, the animals look good and even though it was a hot day, they didn't seem bothered. This is a nice place to bring the family. Take your time and enjoy the displays. .. or in the case of the Orangutans, being on display. :)
We were very impressed with ZooTampa at Lowry Park. All the exhibits were well looked after, and we enjoyed every minute at the park. It is well-organized, and a will take you the better part of the day to explore. It is best that you arrive at opening, as many of the animals seek shelter during the heat of the day. The Zoo's commitment to working with other facilities to save endangered animals, especially not the "pretty ones" that people pay $$ to see, is quite commendable. The water log ride in the middle of the park is a nice refreshing "splash" in the middle of a hot summer day. There are also plenty of opportunities for smaller children to splash around.
