The first zoo in Tampa was very small and located in Plant Park which is on the campus of the school of Tampa but during the 1950's the zoo was moved to Seminole Heights. The zoo was named after General Sumter Loper Lowry, who was a hero in several wars and made quite a few civic contributions to the town.

The zoo has more local species than any other zoo from the State of Florida, including Key Deer, the American Gator, Flamingoss, the Florida Panther and RaseateSpoonbilll as well as the AmericanCrocodile. The zoo also has anew addition called Safari Africa which features Giraffe, Elephants, Zebra and the White Rhino as well as meerkats and the shoe-bill stork.

Another new addition you'll get to see with Lowry Park Zoo coupons is the Asian Gardens, which was previously the Asian Domain, but has been completely renovated. The Asian Gardens section features the Indian Rhinoceros, Sumatran Tigers and a Komodo Dragon as well as leopards, pigs and an Aviary with many species of birds in the Sulawesi Indonesia theme.

The zoo has quite a few projects in its species survival plan, which include species that are on the endangered list or the threatened list, as well as some that are being specially looked at. These include chimps, Bornean orangutan, mandrills, the Victoria Crowned pigeon, palm cockatoo and komodo dragon. The zoo also has a hospital for injured Florida manatees.
