It's a small Zoo set into a larger park. The benefit of a smaller zoo is that younger children don't have time to get bored. The drawback is that it doesn't have a large collection of animals, so if you want to see a lot...More

The Reid Park Zoo just gets better and better. Small enough to be enjoyed by the youngest visitor, and interesting enough for zoo regulars, you can feed giraffes, and ride a train around the pond outside the zoo, as well as visit your favorite. A...More

A bit tricky to get to. Ample parking. Nice restaurant. Gift shop. Small zoo but interesting assortment of animals. Rare black jaguars. Nice experience. Can see it all in about 2 hours.

Wonderful little zoo. Animals are easy to view. Reasonably prices. Nice family outing. Great for young children. Not too tiring for the little ones, yet interesting and fun for kids 6-12.

By far one of the nicest zoos in the southwest. Surprised at how close you come to the animals. Feeding the giraffes was worth the whole trip. Well maintained, engaging information panels and knowledgeable staff!!!

Hi. The last two gave you some good tips. I’m only going to add that the Sonoran Desert Museum is mostly dirt paths. So if you have a stroller, small kids or walking restrictions this can be challenging. Also once you are... More

I don’t remember but check the website for their list of affiliate zoos. We got in free because of that but in general, prices were low.
