Went with friends the day after Thanksgiving and the weather was perfect and loved walking the zoo! We took lots of spectacular pictures, the animals were awake and seemed so happy. The zoo is good size, but not too large where it would take the whole day to walk like our Denver Zoo. We appriciated the size.

This zoo was just the right size for us to enjoy with our grandchildren that are 2 and 4. My granddaughter really wanted to the see the zebra ( which they have) however she was not out on the day we visited.

We only had a few hours in Tucson and wanted a outside activity. Very clean, intimate venue. Well price, nice walk for the elderly and young kids. The giraffes were my favorite.

Nice zoo, though when we were there a lot of the exhibits were empty. Good amount of nice looking animals. Large elephant family but sad to see them in such a small area. Great for kids. I would avoid in the hot months except in the AM.

This zoo is small compared to many other. Being small made it perfect for us. We made it in time to buy the treats to feed the giraffes. It was great! The children loved feeding them, maybe as much as we did. The zoo is pretty flat so I thought is a very easy walk for adults Andy children. It... More

Since we have visited many zoos in various places, we were pleasantly surprised by the cleanliness, focus, and enjoyment of this smaller zoo. Though smaller, they have taken great steps to provide an interesting, well-kept place. They take their care of the animals seriously, and it's a trip worth repeating.

Even small, the park has a lot of different animals. I especially liked the giraffes and the elephants.

I took my granddaughter to the Reid Park Zoo today. I am a member of the zoo. If you are a Tucson resident the membership is well worth it. When my children were young I was a member also. My children and now my 21 month old granddaughter loves going here. We spend around two hours each time we go... More

Zoo is medium size with many animals and lots of trees for shade. If lucky enough to visit during Christmas season, you wouldn't be disappointed.
