Great zoo to take a date or the family!
Pros: All the birds! Especially the shoebill.
Cons: Huge parking lot so if you park far away it's a hike.
Not a zoo expert by any means, but Lowry Park is pretty cool. Love the nighttime events like WaZoo and their holiday lights. Never too crowded, at least when I've been, and enough rotating exhibits to come back for repeat visits.
Pros: Big, well-maintained, ample parking, great fundraiser events.
Cons: Tickets can get a little pricey if you've got a big family, but they do a solid job of trying to make them worth it.
The zoo itself is a great family place and offers a lot of learning and fun for kids. On the other hand, Wazoo is their annual Beer Festival which offers a chance for adults to enjoy the zoo in a different light. I have attended several Wazoo's and I might say the beer selection is great (a lot of micro brews) and the food is good as well. Just make sure to have a DD or safe ride home.
Pros: Great local zoo with lots to do.
