Loved walking the trails around this palm tree lined small lake. Lots of birds and wildlife to spot. We walked all around the main lake and hiked the trails around the spill area. Some weekends they have guided walks with bird experts. That would be good to check their web site for.

Wonderful place for bird watching in a desert oasis, pack a lunch and enjoy this beautiful setting.There is a Audubon office along with an Art Gallery. The home is original home furnished as it was in its period.

If I hadn't seen this park named on the city map, I would have never known it existed. If you have an hour to fill, stop and see this picture perfect palm-tree lined pond. There are also some historic exhibits and a short paved trail you can explore. There are picnic tables with grills, restrooms and plentiful parking.

My husband and I visit Agua Caliente when in Tucson and have always enjoyed the peaceful oasis environment. Three years ago the ponds showed signs of distress and were mostly dry except for the main one. This year the main pond appears almost full but the others are completely dry. There are pictorial signs explaining the reasons. However, it's still... More

I've lived in Tucson for years and just discovered Aqua Caliente park. It is so delightful. Beautiful grounds. Pretty places to take a walk, a family picture or a picnic. Big open place to throw a frisbee and a beautiful p

This is a nice, pleasant park on the far east side of the Tucson area. Close to mountains, with nice views and some native wildlife. The park itself is nice, but doesn't have a lot of amenities of other parks, such as ball fields and basketball courts. It IS a good place for a quiet picnic. There is a lake... More

Good place to go birding. There is a large pond with coots, ducks, and turtles. There is a pathway to wander and observe birds. There is a building that houses an Audubon store and there is usually an art show there, too.

Beautiful county park on Tucson's far northeast corner. It's a surreal desert oasis which includes a large pond that's full of fish, frogs & turtles, hundreds (thousands?) of palm trees, aquatic plants, and grassy areas. The whole area is very scenic. Water is scarce in the desert, so the pond naturally attracts a nice variety of wildlife. While we were... More

Truly an oasis. It's nice to sit quietly and watch the turtles or the reflection on the water. Great for bird watching, a group meets on Thursday morning for that purpose. School groups frequently arrive for field trips, some days are busy with picnics, visit the ranch house for Audubon gifts, a history lesson, and local art.

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