  • Very generously landscaped park with Watersplash for children. A through fixed Deer Park train. Great experience for a day trip

  • A very well layed out zoo with beautiful walkways under big trees for shade. All of the animals are well taken care of and very clean. A great varity of animals and some fun animal shows. 
  • lethargic animals, maintenance is not being done at all. looks overgrown like they are possibly going out of business. after you go to Busch Gardens, or any of the Orlando parks, this makes you wonder...  read more »
  • We are here several times a year for family gatherings. Located on the Hillsborough River, not too far north of downtown Tampa, & very close to I-275,, this park is ACROSS the street from Lowry Park Zoo. Shelters can be reserved from the City of Tampa for a small fee, but inconveniently NOT online - you have to visit their office on Columbus near Himes. This is the only reason I give this park 4 stars - it's 2015, it should be easier to reserve a shelter! We've been in many different shelters throughout the park, and all have been a great size for our large family. You can look online to see how big each shelter is, including number of tables & location within the park, which is helpful for reserving a shelter. Except, as I've mentioned, not being able to actually reserve online. Bathrooms are hit or miss here. The last time we were here, the bathroom by the large playground was fairly clean, but today it was not. The park has two great playgrounds, plus a boat ramp, and a dock, so there's really something for everyone, right on the Hillsborough River in urban Tampa!
  • Great free public park on the Hillsborough river. Definitely worth visiting.
  • Good place to walk
  • Clean and beautiful
  • Gorgeous zoo and trails.
