Heritage Park Zoological Sanctuary is a non-profit wildlife sanctuary, dedicated to the conservation and protection of native and exotic animals. Located in scenic Prescott, Arizona, the sanctuary provides a source of recreation, education and entertainment for all ages. With the mission of "Conservation through Education," Heritage Park Zoological Sanctuary provides a unique and up-close experience with animals visitors may see nowhere else. Animals at Heritage Park Zoological Sanctuary all have a story to tell and lesson to teach. We currently house more than 200 animals on our grounds - among them a Bengal Tiger, two Black Bears, two Clouded Leopard siblings, Mexican Gray Wolves, Bobcats, Lynx, Lemurs, various reptiles, and one of the largest tarantula displays in the Southwest.

Main attraction was the tiger feeding at 11am. Otherwise most of the animals were local rescues, so you get a good feel for the fauna of the region. The whole zoo can be walked in less than 2 hours. We enjoyed it but did not spend much time. A playground and very small splash pad kept the kids busy while... More

Heritage provides sanctuary for animals so I don't mind the reasonable entrance fee. It's not a big city zoo and can be covered in an hour or more if you take your time. It wasn't crowded at all - not sure if it was because I went on a rainy day or not. There is a student discount on admission... More

All the animals have names. They are so cute. Jenni the zookeeper is so smart and funny. And she's the mommy to all the animals.

Everyone in our party found this to be a very pleasant zoo that wasn't crowded and easy to get around. It will only take you an hour or maybe less to walk around as this is a fairly small scale zoo. The black bears were entertaining - they have personality. Staff were very nice indeed.

This quaint zoo was a great escape from the Phoenix heat. Only $10 to get in and I look at it more as a donation to help animals than anything else. We zipped around the zoo in less than an hour and viewed several animals and reptiles. Easy to walk around and enjoy a day with the family. Would recommend... More

This was the second time that I have brought my grandchildren to the park when we have stayed in Prescott. In just a year's time, I have seen such improvement in the park. They were definitely more people attending than last time. It is such a great service that they provide to animals that have been injured. There were several... More

Been here many times. The animals here have a variety of stories of how they came to be at the zoo. What they don't have in this title is that this is actually an animal sanctuary with mostly animals indigenous to Arizona. Don't expect many exotic creatures, there are a few but the majority are native. Be sure to spend... More

We went in May 2016, it was our first visit. It's a very cute zoo. Small, but they utilize their space very well. Many local type of animals (they acquired many through injuries in the wild) but they're nice to see and seem to have a good relationship with their keepers. They seem to have a lot of activities through... More
