This is a lovely, very large park in Tucson. In addition to a dog park and the nearby Reid Zoo, there are two large duck ponds and a large grassy area that would work well for picnics. There is also a large experimental rose garden available to the public. Even in the heat of August, there was plentiful shade on... More

Great habitats for the animals, manageable size for a visit--with or without kids. Lots of shade, no pacing big cats. Elephants are a must see!

This is a small zoo with well presented exhibits and habitats appropriately sized for the animals. It does not emphasize local fauna. For that you should go to the Arizona Sonora Desert Museum. The snack bar was not well run. Although we were there on a holiday weekend when the zoo was fairly busy, there was only one cashier and... More

We brought our niece to the zoo today. Specifically so she could feed a giraffe. Had to juggle drive times, lunch times et ux to get there at 2 PM. Giraffe personnel advised feeding was seasonal and should've been updated on-line! It wasn't. Of the few exhibits left, many were out of service or closed with the cute signs on... More

Spent the day at Reid Park, enjoyed walking around the water, strolling threw the rose garden, then took our little chiwheenie to the dog park. He had a blast. Great people, well behaved pups nd lots of room to play. The large dog side looked a little crazy, but the small dog side was a fantastic relaxing nd fun experience.... More

Pretty park - one of the very few with water but VERY busy on weekends. Good parking but again very busy on weekends so parking can be touch. The zoo is on the property so you can take that in as well as do picnic lunch in the park.

It's hard to find an oasis with water in the desert, this one is OK. Busy and loud, but ok. It has green space and playgrounds!

The Rose Garden is a separate fenced garden off the parking lot at Reid Park and TripAdvisor should really list it as a separate attraction just like it did with Reid Park Zoo, since it is not similar to anything around it. The Rose Garden is difficult to find since it is not signed very well. Enter off S Country... More
