This intimate park is a real asset to the Prescott community, and well worth adding to the itinerary of anyone visiting town. The whole zoo and its diverse inhabitants can be seen in a leisurely stroll, making it perfect for families with children of all ages. I don't know another place where my 2 yr. old son could get so... More

i'm from St. Louis where we have one of the best FREE zoo's one can visit. It covers acres and has it all, any animal you can think of to reptiles, birds, sting ray cove to sea lion shows. WIth place to eat and get a drink. So this one was a little disappointing for me.

This zoo is a nice place to stop for families and kids. This is a zoo that take animals that can not survive in the wild or would be otherwise euthanized. There is a small park just off to the right as you enter as well as a picnic area. They have reptiles, birds, a tiger, a bear, petting area,... More

Full disclosure...I was a Docent there for a couple of years, years ago. I go back, when I can, just to see how things are going, like this visit. And a lot has continued to happen. It's small, and you will be closer to most of the animals, safely, than you will be at a big zoo. Since Heritage Park... More

A very interesting place (although a bit tough to find). It's not so much a zoo as an animal reclamation center. They have a number of very interesting animals and they tell you what happened to them and how they got to the rehabilitation facility. Make sure to be there at 2 PM so you can see Sasha the bear...

This was a cute little zoo and we did enjoy ourselves. I'm not sure if it was the time of year we went (January), but in my opinion, for the number of empty cages, it should have cost about $5 as opposed to $8. The gentleman in the ticket booth was not particularly welcoming, nor did we see much in... More

It was really nice on the other side of Willow Lake, AZ, at the Zoo! We visited the animals and donated our pumpkin as we learned from other folks certain animals eat pumpkin. A fun day!

I want to share my recent experience with the photography tour provided by Wayne Fischer. He offered a generous lengthy tour behind the scenes of each of the animals with wonderful opportunities for photography. I highly recommend you take this opportunity to photograph each of the animals and learn their significant stories. After the tour I stopped in the office... More
