An actual Oasis in the desert. Located in the Northeast corner of town so very scenic. Worth checking out for sure.

A friend recently suggested we go there and what a wonderful place to be. It was hot so we did not hike but apparently there are more than 100 acres of park to explore. We sat on a bench by the water and palm trees and enjoyed the afternoon.Lots of birds to enjoy. There are picnic facilities for those who... More

Sometimes you just have to be near water and this park is perfect for that. It stands for hot springs and here in the middle of the desert is just that. A perfect place to walk, picnic and take in one of the nature talks. Saw a great talk on bats one night.

I was going to give this attraction 4 stars but they changed how they conduct the Thursday morning bird walks. Until a few days ago the bird walks that are given every Thursday were free, like they are in The Desert Museum. Now they are charging $5. The park does have more water than most of Arizona, but so does... More

A nice out of the way park with water, trees, and solitude in a busy world. There are walking trails, water, shade, and wildlife.

Grass!!! Plus the history is cool and leashed dogs are allowed to romp with you on the park and in the wash behind. Cool!

We were here several time in February (of 2014 actually) and enjoyed the walking trails with the different ecosystems. Lots of different birds. One morning, we went on a guided birdwalk with a local naturalist. It was great. Will be going here again next time in Tucson!

A nice park for families but also if you just want to meander around and appreciate what is being done to preserve this park. I noticed that the palm trees needed to be trimmed but when I mentioned it to the park worker she told me that they're kept that way for animal habitats. There is also a pond for... More

Found this park thanks to trip advisor. This park is one of the oldest in the area and definitely a Oasis in the desert. Lots of birds and other creatures to view while having your picnic. Well cared for site with good facilities including a small nature gift store. Good historical information supplied on your walk on one of the... More
