We love to take our grandsons to the zoo because it is small and personal. Sometimes the volunteers and caretakers will tell you a lot of fun facts about the animals, and you may even get to be up close and personal with a few of them. My favorite time to go is when they have some of the animals... More

Who knew Prescott had a Zoo? Lots of the locals don't even know Prescott has a zoo! The Heritage Park Zoo is a sanctuary for animals that have been brought there because they could not survive in the wild or be rehabilitated. I spent about 2 hours at the zoo and was able to see some great AZ animals. They... More

we went there with 3 small children, two of which were crabby, over tired toddlers and they loved this zoo. All the animals were close up and easy for the kids to see. The reptile and spider exhibit was a high hit as our little ones kept dragging us back to these two exhibits. The playground was a huge hit... More

Unlike most zoos, Prescott's Heritage Park Zoo only takes animals that have been injured or abandoned, and can't be habituated. They are kept in natural enclosures and spaces, and the staff takes loving care of them. Each habitat tells you about the animals, with emphasis on their background and why they're there. Truly humane. Feedings (especially Shash the bear) well... More

Loved this zoo! It was the perfect size! There were staff members walking around with animals, that you could actually touch. They were having a birthday party for two of the bears that were turning 20 years old and 2 years old!!

My daughter and I enjoyed this little zoo (which is really a sanctuary and not a zoo). The people are very friendly and you can really see some of the animals up close. The whole thing only took a little over an hour to see and it was worth the small entrance fee.

Take your family members on a nighttime trip to this zoo at Christmas time. The zoo is decorated with tasteful Christmas lights and the animals are available for viewing with flashlights (be sure to take your own strong lights). Dress warmly and enjoy.

This Zoo is a must see - it is economical for a whole family and wonderful experience. The zookeepers and staff are very professional and very cordial. They responded to all of our questions and made a special effort to share the animals stories with us. It is a rescue zoo and while some of the stories are heartwrenching, see... More

You must go to this zoo. All of the animals have been rescued, and are just adorable. I especially loved seeing little Hotshot who was recently rescued from the terrible wildfires that they had. If you have kids, they will definitely enjoy Heritage park Zoo (although my hubby and I are in our 60's ad we love the place too!!!)... More
