This 131 acres of green space in central Tucson offers shady trees, water features, a dog walk, a rose garden, tennis courts, a golf course and the list goes on. I especially like the park's lovely small zoo. The birth of Nandi (an elephant) there in August 2014 has brought me back a few times to watch the charmer's antics.... More

I brought a five year old to the park while the guys were golfing. We mainly went for the playground, but the other discoveries we found were the glorious rose garden, a kiddy train to ride around the lake, a model boat race, all kinds of ducks, and a water fall. A very enjoyable afternoon.

Reid Park is a fairly large grassy area with trees in the center of Tucson (the older part, anyway). There are picnic tables and playground equipment for the kids, as well as two rather nice ponds, well, except for the fact that people trash them constantly, which really detracts from their beauty. Between the two parks is a hill with... More

I absolutely love Reid Park and you will, too! If you love the outdoors, there is something wonderful for anyone to enjoy, whether you're a toddler or you're a senior like me. For the younger crowd, there are numerous, lovely playgrounds, a beautiful lake, a small train to ride around the lake, a pool and an incredible zoo to visit.... More

We like to walk every morning and we are always looking for a public place to get in at least 3 miles before breakfast. Reid Park was perfect. Not fa from our freeway hotel, we walked completely around the golf course which was exactly 3.1 miles. Perfect. Then we walked through the park, checked out the fountain, rose garden (opens...

If we had gone to Reid Park for a picnic or to just watch the wide array of waterfowl, we would have been completely delighted. But we came for a walk on a windy day when hiking in the desert would have been too dusty. Walking around the 2 ponds was lovely, and the grassy spaces were very nice. Then... More

Golf? Reid Park Golf Course is public and pretty decent. Flat, but a good place for a quick round. Zoo? The Reid Park Zoo is a great place. It's on the smaller side, but has very well done exhibits and the animals are kept in nicely attended and fairly spacious habitats. Picnic? Sure! It's a park! Watch baseball, play tennis... More

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
