what makes this zoo special is the staff and how close you can get to the animals. Super friendly and helpful staff.
I was so excited to go to this zoo for the simple fact they had elephants. I live on the east coast and there are no elephants in our zoos. Sadly the day we went to the zoo the elephants were not out:-(. The otter pool was fantastic. The otter was being trained while we were there and it was... More
This zoo is small but very nice. The landscaping is lush, and the animal habitats are large and well designed. The new elephant exhibit is particularly impressive. The giraffes also have a great home with both shady and sunny areas and a lot of room to roam. The buildings and visitor facilities are older and less elegant than some zoos,... More
For the past 5 years we have gone to Tucson to the Gem Show. Five years ago we discovered Reid Park Zoo and make it a point to go every year. The small compact zoo can be visited in 2 hours but the animal displays are fantastic. The tiger compound allows you to be very close (maybe 6-8') to the... More

The weather was gorgeous and we enjoyed strolling through the nicely landscaped property. The animals seemed content and the exhibits look well-designed. A friendly docent volunteer shared some information with us about... More

It's a smaller venue, but the viewing areas and paths are laid out well. (The compact design is a bonus for families, tired tourists and anyone... More
This zoo is sanitized and dull, and WAY too expensive. The DM has animals, views, botanical gardens, and much more, for the same price. Not to mention the great drive over Gates Pass!
Very nice attraction the whole year around but the Zoo Lights are something very special... The whole place is lit and caroling and Christmas sing alongs... You do not see the animals at night so make sure to go back during the day and see them well cared for and so relaxed.. The new elephant exhibit is nothing short of... More
The Reid Park Zoo is really impressive. They have a lot of exotic animals (zebras, lions, monkeys, a polar bear) and they're easy to see. The zoo isn't really big, and that's great because it's very easy to walk around and see the whole thing. I like this zoo about ten times more than the Phoenix Zoo because you can... More
