Tampa's Lowry Park Zoo Tickets


Five-time winner of the TripAdvisor Certificate of Excellence (2010-2015), Tampa's Lowry Park Zoo is one of the most popular zoos in the southeastern U.S., with over 800,000 visitors annually. The Zoo originated in the 1930's as a municipal department with a small collection of Florida native species. It grew gradually throughout the next four decades, but struggled to meet the developing professional standards of modern zoos. In 1982, community leaders created the Lowry Park Zoo Association to take over management of the Zoo for the City of Tampa with the goal of creating a world-class zoo through a public-private partnership. The Association then became the Lowry Park Zoological Society of Tampa, Inc., as it remains today. Working with a national zoo designer, the Society was able to create a modern, 24-acre facility that opened to the public in 1988. Accreditation by the Association of Zoos and Aquariums (AZA) came shortly after in 1990. The Zoo was most recently re-accredited in March, 2015.
