About
See our full modified operations plan here: https://zootampa.org/visitor-info/new-beginning-zootampa-reopens/ 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.

Awesome zoo!
Jul 2021
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.

Zoo Day with Grandma
Jul 2021
The trees, shrubs and flowers at Zoo Tampa were so beautiful & fresh. The employees, I spoke to around the Zoo, were super friendly & knowledgeable. It was 90 degrees, so a few animals were sleeping in the shade. My favorites were the Manatees.! We sat for a long time watching them underwater. It would be helpful to have a employee in that area to answer visitors questions. We had a few questions to ask. I googled them when I got back to my car!
Thank you for all your dedication to all the Zoo Animals.

Beautiful zoo with lots to do
Jul 2021
My kids and I (ages 6 and 9) loved this zoo so much, we went back a 2nd time while in Tampa for 6 days. I loved that each area is sectioned off by region, and the kids area with the splash pad for cooling off, playground, and rides were a great addition to the day. We also loved cooling down on the water roller coaster. The animals were very active and the facility is beautiful with luscious plants and beautiful trees and very clean. All employees that we encountered were friendly and helpful.

A little disappointed
Jun 2021
We were a little disappointed with the Zoo this year. We understand the complications due the the pandemic, and on this topic they did very well. Employees were wearing masks, social distancing was good and we felt safe.

What disappointed us is that the entire Florida section of the zoo was blocked off for renovations. Not sure if this was advertised anywhere, before tickets were purchased, we didn't see anything on the web site. The section is easy 25% of the zoo being closed. Luckily our tickets were reduced price, due to another zoo membership. If we paid full price we would have been far more upset.

Many of the animals were not out or active. We understand the heat can be a part of this and aren't using it as part of our lower than usual review rating. Just wanted people to be aware.

Great zoo!
Jun 2021
Our family loves to visit zoos on vacation and this was an excellent one. As soon as you walked in you could tell how fun the zoo was. It is well maintained and the employees are kind and helpful. We have two younger kids and they loved going to the splash pad and cooling off in the middle of the day. It is large, and even though there were a lot of kids it didn't feel overcrowded. There is a family changing room nearby if you need it. We did three of the add on experiences at the zoo: behind the scenes with a tortoise, penguins, and elephants. Each of them were phenomenal and really added to our experience. You can buy the photos from them, but you are also allowed to take your own. Logan was our guide on two of our experiences, and he was friendly and knowledgeable. You can tell that the animals are well taken care of and loved by the staff. If we are in Tampa again we will definitely return to this zoo!

We stopped by on our recent June trip and once again enjoyed the zoo, its inhabitants, and awesome staff. Just read the information on why the stingray exhibit was closed...best of luck with the new project!!
The staff at the zoo realy seem to care and take pride in their work.
