Arrived after 10:30 on a Saturday morning wanting to make sure I caught the baby elephant.. After looking at the map to find her location I was surprised at how small the zoo is. What surprised me more was how great the exhibits were. Because the animals were so close I found myself spending quality at each exhibit. Other zoos... More

Not the largest zoo but great for $ 9. The best thing to do is to get there early as the animals are less active in the heat .Also I've seen the parking lot get pretty full around 10:30 in May. An annual pass is only $35 so if you like photography this is the way to go. You can... More

The zoo was a little smallerthan expected, but it is packed with fun. We particularly enjoyed feeding the giraffes and watching the baby elephant play. We were able to see everythig in an afternoon, which left time to visit another attraction in the morning.

You can almost touch the animals as the exhibits are so close. Children (for a fee) can feed giraffes and/or ride camels. Baby elephant Nandi is still small and cute. Zoo opens 8am for the summer. Nice gift store, especially for adult t-shirts.

Our zoo features excellent facilities especially for giraffes and elephants. You can feed a giraffe ($2 pp) or watch the baby elephant, Nandi scamper about. The grounds are beautiful and easily accessible for strollers/ wheelchairs. You could spend a few hours and see it all or take your time and spend all day. The variety of animals, proximity of enclosures,... More

We loved it here so much we visited twice in our one week vacation! This is a small zoo, but packed with the favorites! We especially liked the early 8 am summer opening, so we were able to see all the animals being active. Two hours is all you need to see everything at a leisurely pace.

This is the perfect size zoo. Not too large and very enjoyable! My family loved it, especially the bears swimming in their habitat and the lions walking right up to you with of course a clear barrier in between. It was pretty amazing' It would be alot more pleasant though going when the weather is nice. A must see if... More

Reid Park Zoo in Tucson may not be huge, but it is definitely worth the visit. We've visited this zoo multiple times with our kids, and have always found the animal exhibits very clean and well kept. You can get close views of all the animals and interact with some of them (for example, they have giraffe feedings and camel... More
