This is a small zoo that can be seen in 2-3 hours. They have strollers to rent and plenty of activities to keep young children and their parents/grandparents occupied and happy.

This park, located in central Tucson has a plethora of activities available. There are several picnic areas, along with a golf course, recreation center, the zoo, and much more. Really great urban park!

Perfect park for a picnic. There are playgrounds for the kids and lots of shade to ensure you don't submit to the ravages of the sun. I great relaxing spot to unwind in the afternoon, weekends, or after a visit to the Zoo
