“Great picnic with ducks and turtles!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed April 16, 2013

What a delight! A true oasis in the desert. One of the three old hot springs still exists and the ponds are lovely. Find a table in the shade, read, explore, and bring your picnic lunch. Open play areas and soft shaded relaxing in an otherwise dry desert region.

“Perfect for a picnic”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 19, 2013

We explored this desert oasis one March evening when the daytime temperature was 80 degrees, and the oasis felt cool and lovely. The ducks and the turtles entertained us at our picnic table until it was time to walk along the paths and watch the sunset. Highly recommend this little-known county park in extreme eastern Tucson area. Uncrowded, easy to sit and relax in the shade of giant palm trees, fun to watch the kids watch the wildlife.

“Oasis in the desert”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed March 18, 2013

This was a delightful surprise. An Oasis in the dessert with lake, palm trees, some wonderful birds and a bit of wildlife. I loved the dozens of turtles sunning on a big log near the bridge. We saw a few white and blue herons. Lots of pic nick spots and nice walking trails. but don't go on a Monday or Tuesday because the visitors center, ranch and art gallery are closed. The walking and hiking trails are in the back of the pic nick area and parking lot. Some areas are closed off now because people do not respect the fauna. Be sure to bring your camera.

“Beautiful View”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed March 8, 2013

But, this is a heck of a climb - so if not in shape, take another trail. I would just say that one might spend so much navigating the narrow mountain trail that you don't see as much as when on a flatter trail.
