Moms, visit Lowry Park Zoo for free this weekend!

Tampa, FL -- Tampa’s Lowry Park Zoo is so wild about moms you can bring yours for free this weekend!

On Saturday, May 7 or Sunday, May 8, moms receive free Zoo admission and DinoQuest admission with the purchase of their son’s or daughter’s full-priced admission ticket (paid ticket can be child or adult admission, based on age). 

This is also the last weekend of DinoQuest at the Zoo, which ends its run after May 8.

Introduce your mom to some of the newest moms who live at the Zoo: A trio of female yellow-footed rock wallabies have become first time mothers, just in time for Mother’s Day.  The marsupial moms – known as Mum, Daisy and Thumper – arrived at the Zoo last year and have conceived three female joeys in various stages of development.
