The Lowry Park Zoo is a fantastic way to spend a day with the family. If you have children, you won’t want to miss this incredible family-friendly zoo.

With more than 1,700 animals and 56 acres of beautifully manicured landscape, the zoo is a veritable paradise to visit. There are several animal exhibits where you can get up-close with some of the animals. Feed a cracker to a giraffe, ride a camel, or pet a goat – it can all happen here and your children will be thrilled.

The zoo also features several shows throughout the day where you can learn about some of the animals that call the zoo home. Don’t miss the Birds of Prey Show, it’s a crowd favorite with some of the rarest and most beautiful breeds on display.

Since it’s often hot in the Tampa area, there is of course a water area for the kiddies to get cooled off and splash around. They’ll have fun running through the fountains, and you’ll enjoy a little time off your feet watching them play.

Don’t forget to stop by Wallaroo Station for some fun rides for the children and a playground where they can tire themselves out.

Once you come to the zoo you’ll see why it’s easy to keep the family entertained for an entire day and you’ll want to come back to make sure you’ve seen it all.
