REVIEW: Tampa Lowry Park Zoo
If you’re patient enough to stay in one place and observe the animals, you typically can witness some different behaviors on every visit… especially for any newborns (i.e. on our visit – the orangutan newborns) at the zoo. We have an annual pass… only $129 / 2-person and there’s so much to see still after only two(2) visits so far this season. There hasn’t been a crowd yet as we’ve visited on weekdays.

Review: Tampa Lowry Park Zoo
GREAT FOR BIRDERS –
Feed The Lorikeets for $5. Know, the lorikeets love rings, shiny things, earrings and bite at them.
So much variety of birds freely flying around in an aviary.
WHERE TO COOL DOWN
There’s an air-conditioned indoor viewing area to see the Manatees
WHAT TO BRING
(1) I like hiding under the Florida sun with an umbrella
(2) Camouflage yourself from the mosquitos with bug spray
(3) Camera with a nice zoom
Walking around mostly on flat walkways (unlike San Diego Zoo on 100 acres of hillside within Balboa Park). For a smaller zoo at 56 acres, you can’t compare it to the Smithsonian’s National Zoo (free in Washington, DC) at 163 acres but Tampa does alright!
