Highlights / General details
With more than 1,200 animals on 56 acres of lush, natural habitats, the Zoo contains several exhibiting areas, including Safari Africa, Ituri Forest, Wallaroo Station, Primate World, Florida Wildlife Center and Asian Gardens.
Animal interactions are available as well, including feeding a giraffe, walking with wallabies, feeling a stingray, touching a giant tortoise and more. Visitors, especially children, will enjoy the hands-on experience we offer that provides an educational insight into the animals' lives.
Tampa’s Lowry Park Zoo is recognized as a conservation and biodiversity center. As the region's only dedicated zoological garden, it was created to be an economical destination. The Native Florida Wildlife Center and the manatee hospital showcase these native species and inform guests on what they can personally do to help preserve their environments.
