Heritage Park Zoological Sanctuary is a non-profit wildlife sanctuary, dedicated to the conservation and protection of native and exotic animals. Located in scenic Prescott, Arizona, the sanctuary provides a source of recreation, education and entertainment for all ages. With the mission of "Conservation through Education," Heritage Park Zoological Sanctuary provides a unique and up-close experience with animals visitors may see nowhere else.

Last month we went for their evening zoo lights event. It was only a few bucks to get in and a great excuse to be out walking. They have the entire zoo open with lights throughout. They had "dancing" lit trees that changed with the music. It is small (we walked around twice in about 40 minutes) but for the... More

We visited and expected a small zoo experience. It was small in size, but completely worth it. We had an enjoyable few hours here as a family. The animals here are often rescued or obtained from other zoos, or collections where they couldn't be kept any longer. So cool that this is essentially a zoo that provides a place for... More

We came here after reading all the reviews of being able to see the animals up close. We saw a tiger and a bear and a very cute baby coyote that only came in to view for the employee but then ran away. Other than that we didn't see any of the animals except the birds which there are a... More

The price is ok. I was disappointed. The place had really bad odor. I realize it's a zoo however it was worse that normal. The Bears were close. They are beautiful I just felt the cages was way to small for them as well as the tiger cage. Uneventful.

We have been to this zoo a few times. We always leave happy. Employees and volunteers are always willing to answer any questions and get the animals out for you to get a closer look. It is small but it is good family time.

I took my daughter and 2 grandchildren to the zoo while they were visiting from out of state. We had so much fun. The property is clean and has a nice lay out. It is easy to walk through. The animals are well fed and look and act healthy and happy. My grandchildren learned much about the animals that are... More

This zoo is for rescued animals. It is small and you can take as much or as little time as you want to go through it.

this is a smaller zoo and it is sort of sad in my opinion as all the animals are either orphaned, or found injured, or otherwise brought in. Still you can get close to the one's that are there.

I loved this place! This is a fairly small zoo with many rescued animals that are from the local area. It is easy to navigate and great for families with small children.
