This is a smaller zoo- so take it for what it is. For the amount of space they have and the amount of animals I think it was laid out well and the exhibits were pretty good. Had a good time.

Although I'm not a huge zoo fan, my partner is and we've been to a fair number of zoos including San Diego and Portland. We went right at opening to this zoo and animals were active with very few people around. Had best view of the big cats we've had and it was interesting to hear some of the morning... More

The zoo is on the smaller side, but it very well maintained. There were zoo staff near many of the animal exhibits providing educational information. We loved it.

After being raised close to the San Diego Zoo, Reid Park Zoo is just average. Not a whole lot of interesting things to see. Took the Granddaughter here once and she was quite bored at age 4 or 5.

At just 17 acres, Reid Park Zoo is the perfect size for Tucson visitors to take young children.They will enjoy watching the animals and not be exhausted at the end of the visit. In fact, anyone of any age who likes zoos would find this well-maintained one worth visiting. The nicely landscaped grounds have wide paths and shady areas that... More

My wife and I enjoyed a Sunday morning stroll through the park while listening to the Gibbons cries sounding through out the park. All the enclosures were well maintained and the animals well cared for. I look forward to visiting again.

This zoo, like so many others, could use more resources to expand and improve its facilities. Overall, this is a nice place. The price is reasonable. The staff was helpful when I had questions. I will go back.

Its a small zoo. We aren't overwhelmed by its size. That is a positive. We are underwhelmed usually by the animals we actually can see here. The little water park is a fun bonus at the end of the day. Usually takes a couple of hours to get through this zoo. Not much more. Would like to see some improvements.

We went on our last day in Tucson when we were running out of things to do. So glad we did! Plenty of animals, easy walk, and some of the most active zoo animals we've ever seen. The elephant exhibit is THE BEST I have ever seen...up close and personal!

Took my 3 year old daughter here at 0900 on a monday. The zoo is small, the perfect size to see everything in about 1.5 hours. Kept my daughter entertained the entire time. The exhibits keep the animals close to patrons. We were able to see the zoo, ride the train, have a cheap hotel dog, and be on n... More
