Not something I would picture in Arizona

This is a small, quiet park with paved trails. The water feature and palm trees are unique to Tucson. I recommend for a one hour, uncrowded getaway.

After a day of hiking, spending an afternoon with a picnic lunch at this oasis was wonderful. The water is once again being maintained after some drought years so the area is beautiful. The ducks were swimming, the egrets flying around and the turtles sunning themselves nicely on this fine spring day. Agua Caliente Park is a great gift to... More

This small park on the far east side has a different feel compared to others in the area. The palm trees seem out of place next to the cacti. It is a good family park with lots of picnic areas. The ranch house has a small art exhibit of local artists. It is a pleasant place to spend a couple... More

We enjoyed walking along the paths in this park, listening to birds, seeing a variety of ducks and a turtle in the pond plus seeing cactus and mesquite trees in one area and palm trees in another.

So glad my sister recommended we take a lunch to this park! We saw a different part of Tucson than we'd been in before and really liked this area. The park was a very pleasant surprise for us. Can only imagine its popularity in the hot months as an oasis in the desert. Wonderful palm trees, other trees, reeds and... More

I started visiting this urban park two years ago, and found it even better this year as there is more water in the ponds. The park is off Old Soldier Trail and is easy to access from East Speedway, Houghton and Tanque Verde. There is a large parking lot (look for a shady spot to leave your vehicle) and washrooms...

Water fowl swim peacefully in the small pond. Huge palms stand tall. Woodpeckers, wrens, and finches abound. A tropical paradise in the desert.

Had a hard time deciding how to rate the Agua Calliente Park experience. If you are a birder then probably a 5 star but if you are looking for a place to hike a 3 star. The palm oasis is a peaceful place to wonder. There are no bicycles allowed. Part of the trail to the second lake (which is... More

This is a lovely free park with palm trees and birds, ducks, turtles and picnic tables. Great walking and a great place to just relax.

I'm hesitant to write such a strong review in fear of letting her secret out! This park was amazing. It has beautiful, diverse landscape, scenes, and ecosystems all in one location. We saw birds and water fowl and enjoyed the paved walking trails with our small kids. Definite must see and we will drive the hour to visit again another... More
