My husband and I visited on a nice afternoon in February, sunny and temp in low 70s, and had a very pleasant time. The animals all seemed well-kept and exhibits seemed clean and in good repair. There is a nice mix of animals, from birds to giraffes, with many informational postings about the animals. We spent just under two hours... More

We live in Phoenix but really prefer this smaller zoo to ours. Its just very very accessible, the animals seem content and personable somehow. We have been here several times and consider it one of the best zoos we've ever been to.

The Reid Park Zoo in Tucson was a better zoo than imagined a city the size of Tucson would host. Nice mostly modern enclosures with nice amenities for the animals with plenty of space. My only criticism would be there was not a great deal of information on each animal, such as simply where they are from!

Thus place is so much more interesting then when I was a kid. They have done a lot of work and have added a lot of new animals, including camel rides. The biggest thing I miss was snow cones as they seem to have been replaced by all kinds of other goodies.

While small in scale, Reid Park Zoo is nonetheless a very worthwhile visit, very nicely done, attractively landscaped, well maintained, friendly staff, and some great opportunities to see and even interact with animals! My wife did the giraffe feeding, which was enjoyable, although we were disappointed that for $3 you only get 2 carrot sticks, so the experience is over... More

I just love this place! You can't go wrong, even with small children. It is just big enough that by the time you've seen everything, your little ones will be ready for food and a nap! Perfect morning excursion!

Decent zoo. Not too big or small. Needs to keep more of their animals available at all times though. Today we spotted at least 10 animals not on display for various reasons

Been coming here for too many years to count. While small, this is a wonderful zoo to explore with family and friends if you have an hour or so to spare!

Revisited Reid Park Zoo where I used to take my children at least once a month. Not strenuous walking distances for small children, and many animal experiences have been added. Most enclosures are nature-like, and a sidewalk train has been added just in front of the ticket office. The train is perfect for small children, and travels across the street... More
