You can find Lowry Park Zoo at 1101 West Sligh Avenue, Tampa, FL 33604. Load the family up in your Tampa van rental from Carl’s Van Rentals and hit the road for some quality family time at one of Florida’s best zoos.


Wallaroo Station: Enter Wallaroo Station, and you’ll be transported to Australia in an instant. This interactive exhibit is home to some of the continent’s favorite faces such as koalas, New Guinea singing dogs, wallabies, kookaburras, and more. Kids will love the exhibit’s water play area The Billabong.

Free-Flight Aviaries: This exhibit, a replication of a sub-tropic rainforest paradise, plays host to colorful tropical birds like the toucan, purple swamp hen, red-legged honeycreeper, blue-bellied roller, and more. The exotic and endangered birds fly freely about the aviary, gliding gracefully above man-made waterfalls. This exhibit is a must-see for any bird lovers in the family.

Primate World: Orangutans, chimpanzees, and madrills can all be found at the Primate World exhibit. Here you can learn about where these highly endangered species originated from, and what can be done to help keep them from becoming extinct altogether.


Lowry Park Zoo is open daily from 9:30 a.m. until 5 p.m.
