    Cute and Loving Experience!

    My fiancé proposed me at Zoo Tampa on December 4, 2020, and it was an unforgettable moment! They pretended to be just a regular Koala encounter but actually it was a surprise and a very well planned proposal. My fiancé told me that the personnel at Zoo Tampa was extremely helpful, nice and kind. We are highly recommend this facility!

    ZooTampa at Lowry Park's reply:

    Ana, thank you for the wonderful words. We are so happy that the proposal was unforgettable. The pictures are too cute!

    Fantastic!

    It was easy to set up! Every one at the zoo was prompt, professional, and available for every question I had. The experience was amazing and my fiancé loved it.

    Travis, thank you so much for allowing us (and our penguin friends) to be a part of your big moment!
