ZooTampa at Lowry Park
Get Wild Safely
As our community gradually reopens and eagerly seeks ways to reconnect with each other, we are humbly reminded of the importance our Zoo plays in providing Tampa Bay with outdoor nature experiences which boost mental health and provide comfort.
Upgrade Your Day
Add amazing moments to your day at ZooTampa with our unforgettable signature animal encounters, like our Indian Rhino Feeding, where you'll get to feed a greater one-horned rhinoceros, a rare species vulnerable to extinction. Plus, learn more about our breeding pair Jamie & Johnny, and get exclusive access to the team that cares for these special animals every day.
Feel the rush of a three-story splashdown on our family water ride Roaring Springs! Don't want to get wet? Climb aboard the open-air Expedition Africa Safari Tram Ride, where you'll get behind-the-scenes views of dozens of animals, including the Zoo's African elephant herd, Patas monkeys and more! All rides at ZooTampa are included with your admission.
Tampa Bay’s number one family Halloween event, Creatures of the Night, returns this October with spooky scares and unforgettable eerie frights for ghouls & goblins of all ages. The mostly outdoor event will take place for 11 select nights from Friday, October 2nd to Saturday, October 31st and will be modified with enhanced health & safety measures to ensure safe family fun.
