FlamingoSummer is coming up fast, and when you live at WaterGrass, there is so much to do. You and your kids have lots of fun activities from which to choose. Because Wesley Chapel is just a short drive from Tampa, there are plenty of day-long outings available! We’ll be doing a Summer Family Fun series, and our first feature is the Lowry Park Zoo.

Reviews: Yelp and Trip Advisor

Lowry Park Zoo has tons of fun to offer your family this summer! You can spend the whole day exploring the 56 acres of natural habitats and seeing the more than 1,700 animals living here. From manatees to koalas to elephants, Lowry Park Zoo has all the animals you and your family love.

While you’re there you can interact and learn about different animals in a hands-on way. Some of the experiences include Giraffe-feeding, Wallaroo Petting Zoo, Bushland Budgies, Stingray Bay and more.

According to a Yelp user, “This is a great zoo. What other zoo can you go to and see manatees? And learn about manatee research? And hang out with the parrots in the aviary? They are also set up in such a way that both kids and adults will walk away with a little more information on both the animals and the environments they live in. And you’ll have so much fun that you won’t even notice that you’re learning things too.”

Get the whole family together and spend the day at the zoo during one of their upcoming events:

  • June 24, 5-8pm, Summer Safari Night
  • July 1-4, 9:30am-5pm, Red, White & Zoo
  • July 16th, 7pm-8am Special Manatee Rescue Sleepover, kids only grades K-5
