What is there to do?

Have you ever experienced a giraffe or white rhino feeding? Have you ever enjoyed the thrill of a log flume at a zoo? There's a first for everything, and at Lowry Park Zoo, there's a good chance you'll be ticking a few of those boxes!

Lowry Park Zoo has 56 amazing acres of lush natural habitats, and those acres are made up of seven fun man exhibit areas that kids will just LOVE exploring! From the Asian Gardens, Aquatic Center, Florida Wildlife Center, to Primate World, there will be something new and fun for the kids to explore. 

Are you ready to go on safari? It's a jungle in there! At Safari Africa kids can see some amazing wildlife up close - from meerkats, zebras, elephants, to the sweet pygmy hippos...the whole family can stand on the feeding plateau and get eye to eye with even the tallest animals! (YOU can also feed the giraffes!) 

The Wallaroo Station is designed especially for families, where there is a host of interactive things to see and do! Crickey - it's an Australian adventure too! Kookaburras, cockatoos, koalas and wallabies....kids can even play in the "Billabong" water area (or ride the Tasmanian Tiger roller coaster!) A great introduction to the great land of Oz!

And yes, the Lowry Park Zoo has RIDES! There are seven rides which are included in your admission. Bump the day away with Outback Bumper Boats, or enjoy a guided safari tour with behind-the-scenes views of dozens of African animals!

Are you and the family ready to get WILD at Lowry Park Zoo! We certainly are - let’s go!
