Certainly was not expecting a natural spring here, but sure enough here it was. Walking around this park there were moments when I forgot I was in Tucson. A beautiful place to come for some quiet mental rejuvenation.

On Tucson's far east side this desert oasis park has lots to look at, nice walking trails. Family picnic areas. A nice place to relax and escape the city.

I love going to picnic at Aqua Calente Park . Have taken my grandchildren their on many occasions. The trees and pond is a little oasis in Tucson. There is a nice walk around the park and it's a great place for a family

This regional park offers nice places for a family gathering as well as guided historical tours and great bird watching. The art gallery is an added bonus.

Another "out of the way" place of solitude from the busy traffic of Tucson. Great spot for a picnic with the family or a "senior afternoon". Small lake with duck and turtles. You need GPS or a good "co-pilot" directing you. It is out of the way and you don't expect to find this in Tucson. Lush and green!

If you want to get away from the busy day and enjoy a quiet, serene place, then this is a perfect park. I've been here countless times and love sitting by the lake or walking around the lake. there's always people, but even they can feel distant here. It's a great place for photographs and has a lot of history!

I've been going to Agua Caliente Park for many years. It's still a nice, pleasurable spot to cool off in Tucson. Hidden on the far east side of town, It's much less trampled down than most tourist attractions. Seriously, I'm happy about that. It's a small park and if it got much more traffic, it would be ruined. Its a... More

We took our friends with their kids . Loved it! Great place for a picnic and letting the kids run. I haven't been in the hot summer months but I'm sure if you go early it world be ok.
