Although I was sad to see such magnificent animals, such as the Tiger, have to live in her reduced circumstances, I know their animals are rescues and Heritage's resources are limited. It would be especially wonderful to see a few of the enclosures enlarged, especially the tiger's, bear's and wolves. If you go in the summer, arrive right at 9am... More

This is a small well maintained zoo/sanctuary...The animals are very well cared for and many could not survive outside of this environment. The staff is helpful and very well informed about the animals in their care. It can get hot here in the summer months. There is a shaded play area for the kids, near the petting zoo. There are...

We visit here several times a year with five year old. In the summer there is a water play area that is very popular so have the kids in swim suits when you come. Cost is reasonable and there are frequently groupons available. Animals appear in good condition and are generally in view. There is a party area available and... More

This zoo features injured animals from the wild. They are taken care of, and eventually released in the wild. This is a great place for young children and there are docents to explain everything. It is a worthwhile spot and one could spend at least 3 hours.

Low price to enjoy all year. There is always something new and the kids love the splash pad in the summer plus cool special events

This is basically a rescue zoo, so there is an interesting assortment--everything from bears and a tiger to snakes (though I haven't actually braved the snake house myself) and javellinas. It is a perfect sized zoo for a 1-2 hour visit and it is fun for the kids to watch the feedings. There is a petting zoo and a lot... More

Two of us moms met up at the zoo with our children to my surprise they have completely remodeled the zoo. This was the first time that I've taken my two-year-old. We got to watch the tiger get fed breakfast there was a petting zoo just for kids in area just for the kids to play. New playgrounds nice little... More

Lovely that this is a sanctuary for orphaned wild animals. All of the animals seemed happy and content. The animal's environments are created to be as natural and stimulating as possible. There were also birds and reptiles and, even some tarantulas.

They have an impressive WEB site that explains what they do as a sanctuary. Lots of complimentary reviews but the park is very small only about 10 acres. Lots of animals in a very small area. Their tiger, Cassie, for example enclosure is more of a prison cell. Little area to roam. If they are a true sanctuary they should... More

The first thing I want to say is this little zoo passionately loves their animals and the people who visit. The docents are wonderful. And for a city the size of Prescott to have a zoo is pretty remarkable. I'm sure the tenants are rescued and not able to live independently any more and that is why they are there... More
