Tampa’s Lowry Park Zoo is now ZooTampa at Lowry Park and heads into 2018 with a refreshed, contemporary identity featuring a new logo and revitalized vision. The Zoo also shared future plans that will enhance the Zoo’s capacity to preserve Florida wildlife and create memorable guest experiences.
• Roaring Springs - a wild, new family water adventure, presented by Pinch A Penny, will open later this spring.
• Key West – an original region of the Florida realm will be renovated showcasing the colorful sights and sounds of Florida’s southernmost point.
• Florida Wilds - the Florida Boardwalk will be transformed to expand its capacity to provide vital care to Florida wildlife like black bears, Key deer and panthers.
• Florida Waters – construction is underway on an upgraded life support system at the David A. Straz Jr. Manatee Critical Care Center allowing the Zoo to treat even the most severe cases. The center offers guests views of real-time rehabilitation of injured manatees. A future reimagined manatee recovery habitat will allow guests more ways to be nose-to-nose with the gentle sea cows before they are released back into the wild. The area will also feature interactions with playful otters and stingrays.
