I love animals and love to visit zoo's. This zoo was very neat but small. I felt very sad for some of the very small enclosures the birds were kept in. It was a lazy cloudy day so most of the animals were in their homes sleeping so made viewing or taking pictures of them very difficult. I did like... More

This is such a lovely zoo and can be done in an hour or half a day. There is a playground for kids and tables to sit at so you can take breaks. Heritage Park Zoo is a sanctuary zoo which means they take in orphaned animals, some animals from closing zoos, or wild animals which were kept as "pets".... More

We spent a few hours here on a recent vacation to Prescott. We had 10 kids and 4 adults. We were leisurely, allowing kids to spend as much time as they wanted in each section. This gave everyone time to observe the animals as much as possible. We were lucky to be there during the bear feeding. The staff is... More

We had a lot of fun at the Zoo. Lot's of animals to see, each with a unique story of survival. The staff is very friendly and knowledgeable. You can really see the love they have for the animals. Bring a picnic lunch. A great value, and much cooler than staying in Phoenix.

A great place with a wide variety of Zoo life to see, great staff and even a motorized scooter for me to use free of charge. The price is very cheap!

It was great to talk to the staff and hear stories of the animals. We watched a bear playing in his pool tossing a bowling ball. Good way to break up our drive and stretch our legs :)

If you're looking for something to do to keep the kids busy then take them out here to the zoo. We enjoyed a great time with my son and my nephews and they talked about it for quite some time. Everyone was very friendly and the staff seemed genuinely concerned about all of the animals and their well-being.

We spent a couple of hours looking round this 'zoo'. It was hot and dusty but the place has plenty of places with shade. Most of the animals were out and about and we got great views of the bears, the tiger, the cats and the large birds. I felt that the place was trying to give enough space for... More

While enjoying a weekend in Prescott, we decided to visit the Heritage Park Zoo. What a beautiful zoo. We loved the whole premise of the zoo as they rescue animals needing forever homes from other zoos and sanctuaries. The staff were all so friendly and we got to watch a tiger feeding, which was amazing. We learned the tigers story... More

We recently visited Heritage Park with our 1 1/2 year old son and he had a blast being able to walk around the zoo. This zoo is a much better alternative to the overpriced and crowded for profit zoos. The animals here are rescued or wounded for the most part and the size is just right. The $8 admission will...
