This is a nice park on the very east side of Tucson. Lots of trees and shade and a few picnic tables. The park has recently been maintained and is nice to visit and see the turtles.

A veritable oasis in the desert! Small, spring-fed lake with ducks and other wildfowl. Birdwatcher’s paradise. Peaceful and usually quiet. Walk the grounds and picnic with the family.Don’t fail to visit the historic ranch house and learn about the history of the ranch and park.

This is a fantastic family spot. Lovely (by AZ standards) picnic area - our grass can be a bit 'pokey' according to small grandchildren but they wear shoes..so... there are bathrooms, a stream, ponds with a LOT of turtles, ducks, etc. Walking path and some buildings that I have never been into because they are never open when I go...

This Park has a long history. A little oasis in the Desert, once privately owned, now enjoyed by any one who ventures to see such a green place in a dry desert.. Has beautiful old trees, old ranch buildings, the grounds are well kept, perfect for a picnic. The lake is surrounded by all sorts of water plants, and is... More

For a while, the spring that feeds the pond was not running above ground. As a result, I hadn't visited the park in quite some time. This year, there is some above ground flow and the primary pond has some water. We visited at about 8:00 am and there were already quite a number of families setting up for picnicking... More

My husband and I spent about an hour here today. Given it's the Easter holidays, the park was busy with large family gatherings, which was nice to see. Just good clean fun with no rowdiness. There are lots of places to picnic. We walked the trails and were amazed by the huge palm trees. The lake is pleasant, and you'll... More

Great for the whole family. Also really good place to take pictures - we saw three professional photographers there taking pictures of people with the park as a backdrop.

This is a FABULOUS, one of a kind, place in the desert, but, because of that, LOTS of people like to visit on their days off. Best if visited when YOU're the only Ones!

This is a small park that is used primarily by locals. It was very clean, and we enjoyed the short walk along the pond which is sheltered by many tall palm trees which keeps it cool. It would be a good choice for a picnic. there are benches and tables and barbecues available. Its free and there is a good... More

We visit monthly, and even in August if you go in early morning or dusk it's acceptable. If you like birding, winter and spring are great, the ponds and trees hold a surprising amount of activity. Audubon of Tucson has a shop as well with fun stuff, but the days open are limited so check ahead. Be sure to go... More
