Easy enclosures for the smallest children (even in strollers) to see all of the animals. Peacocks strolling around the grounds are a pleasant surprise and feeding the giraffes is a fun treat. Camel rides are available but we didn't try it. Not too large to see it all in a few hours. Strollers available for rental and food and water... More

Major zoo's are often hard for young children to take in. This zoo has the big name animals and enough of the smaller ones like birds and monkeys. Great shading on the pathways makes it enjoyable 11 months out of the year.

Even though it was 90 degrees the zoo is so shaded you would never know it. Grounds were beautiful and animals active and well cared for. Got great pictures! Eco-friendly.

We have so many different animals there and they keep adding to it, clean and entertaining, the zoo keepers are so friendly and enjoy sharing their knowledge with all, especially the children. We love the Reed Park Zoo.

Ain't San Diego or the Bronx Zoos, But for a relatively small the exhibits are interesting, the zoo well-laid out and clean. It is especially a great venue for smaller children -- just the right size and not overwhelming. For kids 4 to 10, it's perfect. Also for kids 65+!

I really do love our zoo. I think Tucson does a great job with the variety of animals they have in their zoo. The baby elephant born in 2014 is such a delight to watch grow up.

This was a zoo worth visiting. We enjoyed this zoo. Loved the baby elephants. Feeding the giraffe was a highlight. The big cats were very good.
