Wonderful place to take the kids! They have camel rides, a merry-go-round, giraffe feedings and a train for added entertainment for the kids. The bears, elephants, gibbons and lemurs are the favorite for our kids but they love all the animals and exhibits and get a kick out of the playground in the back near the education buildings. Love this... More

Small provincial zoo. Not so many animals. South American animals are represented by quite few species. Nicely recreated habitats, pleasant opportunity to feed a giraffe, a learning center for kids. To my mind there could be more activities, and learning center could have much more to show. The cashier at the entrance gave us a 1 dollar discount, maybe it's... More

This is the perfect place for new parents, parents with young kids, for dates ..first date to 25th anniversary date. It's peaceful quiet and humorous too. Beats going to a movie, you can actually learn something about the person / persons your with. The best of all is the price, anyone can afford to go.

I love the elephant enclosure! The way you get to see the young ones play in the water makes you wish that you were playing in there with them! Feeding the giraffes are always a favorite! Just to feel the raspy tongue on your hand and on your hair if your lucky is awesome! We love the monkeys and get... More

There's a decent amount of variety and space for this smaller sized zoo. We had great customer service throughout and the kids were pretty excited about not only the fauna & flora, but the PokeStops too. A fun afternoon, all in all. You'll enjoy this more if you're not expecting a big zoo! Great for taking little ones.

Our family renews our membership with the zoo every year and we always get the most out of it. We had had a birthday party here for our toddlers and we have attended the birthday party held for Nandi the baby elephant. It's easy to navigate with strollers and there are plenty of spots to stop and rest. The food... More

Our family has visited several zoos throughout the country, but one of our favorites is here in Tucson where we live. Reid Park Zoo is reasonably priced, the docents are great (we always learn something new), there's some shade (which is VERY important in Tucson), and then there's all the animals to enjoy-including Nandi! Nandi is the baby elephant who... More

Reid Park is a gem of a Zoo and I've seen the best. Try to catch the early morning (9amish I think) feeding of the 'screaming' monkeys. What a hoot!

Took our 3 year old daughter here and she loved seeing all the different animals. It is not good on crowded days but very pleasant when it is not so busy.
