Tampa’s Lowry Park Zoo consistently earns the Best Zoo in the US designation from Parents Magazine by offering family friendly adventures and special, limited-time exhibits that educate as well as entertain visitors of all ages. The current limited-time exhibition, Sea Lion Splash, delivers on both counts!
For $2 per person (plus the zoo’s general admission or Zoo Pass), visitors gain all day access to the Sea Lion Splash zone which includes a bounce house and slide, a giant sandbox, the specialty gift shop, and a 30 minute presentation featuring the California and Patagonia sea lions. The educational shows are offered at 10:45am, 1pm, and 3:45pm now through May 31, 2014.
During our recent Earth Day visit, we learned about the sea lions natural habitat and delighted in the playful antics of these adorable animal ambassadors. Be sure to stay after the show for an interactive sea lion photo opportunity. For a small fee, we had our photo taken with two of the sea lions. Feeling their whiskers and strong necks was an experience we’ll never forget!
The sea lion educational program is designed to help us to better appreciate some of our nearest neighbors from the California coast to South America, said Craig Pugh, CEO and executive director of the Zoo. Sea Lion Splash is at Lowry Park Zoo now through May 31, 2014!
