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

This zoo doesn't have a huge number of species, but what it does have is well displayed. Unfortunately, it no longer seems to have some of my favorite animals, but there are still plenty of others. It has the usual large animals everyone expects to see, in nicely designed enclosures: lions, tigers, a polar bear, giraffes, elephants, monkeys, a muntjac,... More

We went when the zoo first opened in the morning. It was going to be a hot day. My grandchildren loved the Elephants the best. There are so many wonderful animals to see. Just don't go in the heat of the day.

This is a beautiful small sized zoo. My family loves it. The settings for the animals are so nice. Make sure you see the elephant enclosure. It is the best for elephants I have seen.

What an awesome little zoo! The peacocks walk about, and there's oh so many things for the little ones to see from their own viewpoint. Definitely excellent

I love to go to this zoo, it has a lot of things to see and you can get through it in one day. Don't go in the summer though! It gets really hot in Tucson and it is nut fun to be walking in the heat.

I can't remember the last time I visited a zoo so was happy to check this one out. I showed up before noon and it was already packed with families. A large variety of animals and lots of shade throughout most of the park. The only downside was the cafe. Most of the food was prepared beforehand and the selection... More

My wife and I took our two year old son here and we were please that tickets were under $10 for admission. I always hate getting drug somewhere for a kid adventure and getting raked over the coals with high admission prices for adults who don't really want to go in in the first place. All the animal enclosures were... More
