We had a really nice morning visit to the Zoo. Very reasonable at $9.00 per person. Nice and clean with great viewing areas and very friendly informative Volunteers. My favourite area was the elephants, such a big area for the elephants to roam. There was even a baby elephant. Great place for kids and families, lots of moms with strollers.

Thank you this is one of the nicest well kept little food we have ever visited. Great variety of animals and we found their conditions very humane and very inspiring. The people of Tucson seem very supportive of this zoo and it offers visitors here a great great afternoon.

One of the best elephant enclosures at any zoo. This zoo is arranged so you can see lots of animals in a short period of time. Take a stroll around this park and enjoy all it has to offer. Enjoyed the birding area the most

Reid Park Zoo is very proud of Expedition Tanzania - the newer habitat for a herd of African elephants. We are glad that your stroll through the Zoo included the aviaries, and that you enjoyed bird watching was a part of your visit. Thanks for coming! More

This is a small zoo so it will not be an all day event to walk through all the exhibits. The animals are well tended and happy. It is a very clean zoo and the kids had a wonderful time. The crowd was small as well.

It sounds like you had a nice visit to Reid Park Zoo. As spring approaches, if you prefer small crowds, plan to visit on weekday afternoons. The mornings will start getting busy with school field trips, and the weekends are busy with out-of-town visitors an lots of activities. More

For the size of it, this zoo is actually quite entertaining. The kids love coming here and with an annual pass it's reasonable to bring them often. They have additional events for Easter, Halloween, and Christmas which are a lot of fun. You can do the whole zoo in about an hour at a steady pace or you can slow... More

Reid Park has a surprisingly good variety of animals, given that it's not a particularly large zoo. It is the perfect size to walk through with kids or to simply spend a morning or afternoon (2-3 hours). They expanded the elephant enclosure which is now a highlight of the zoo! Don't let them fool you with the polar bear exhibit... More

We are happy to hear you enjoyed the variety of animals at Reid Park Zoo. We currently care for over 100 species - any of which are rare or endangered. We miss polar bears as well. Two rescued grizzly bears - Ronan and Finley - currently reside where polar bears used to live years ago. More

I went to the Reid Zoo today for the first time, with the Green Valley Camera Club. I had heard and read that it was not a very large zoo and had limited animals. What a delightful surprise! I had a wonderful time. Due to the layout of the zoo and the type of animal enclosures, we were able to... More

I like that this zoo is centrally located and not very big. It's easy for young kids and grandparents to be able to see the whole zoo without getting too tired. The gift shop is very expensive but they have great stuff. The giraffe feeding is my son's favorite, but they only do them twice a day so you have... More
