I study veterinary medicine so I am always eager to visit any animals.. this place is hands down one of the best places to go to. We went today, and hour before they closed and still had time to check everything out. A few of the animals were sleeping, probably because we arrived so late but it's okay. The animals... More

I study animal behaviour and welfare so I can tell these animals are very well looked after! I was very pleased to see all the enrichment provided - the mountain lion was playing with her toy when we visited! Lovely staff. Small but it's a good day out.

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.

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 :)
