“Cheap thrills”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed November 13, 2011

For a rescue zoo, it's pretty good. All the animals were out and about. We got up close to numerous animals but our 4 year old really wanted to play on the playground and that was about it. We came when admission was only a $1. That was worth it...don't know that we would have paid more.

“Well worth the visit!!!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 6, 2011

After visiting Prescott for many years, we finally got to see the Heritage Park Zoo. It is home to many abandoned, injured and illegally kept animals. We enjoyed our visit, seeing all the animals, and spending time on the playground. Definitely recommend it for a visit if you are in Prescott!!

peaceful little zoo, great to be able to walk around with my little ones without facing the crowds of the Phoenix zoo!

“Great Place for Toddlers”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed June 13, 2011

The zoo is a bit small but it had lots of things to keep our 20 month old happy. We got to see the tiger and bear close up (which can be rare in larger zoos). The bathrooms were clean and the best part for our 20 month old was that there was a large sand box area with toys for her to play with, a splash pad, and a playground. The three combined with the zoo meant that she was entertained for about 3 hours--nicely done. She also got to pet the goats which she loved.

The cost for us, with our Phoenix Zoo membership, was $8.00 for me, my husband, and my 20 month old daughter--not bad for a morning of fun. Without the membership it would have been $16.

I recommend it for people visiting prescott with small children.
