Heritage Park Zoological Sanctuary is a non-profit wildlife sanctuary, dedicated to the conservation and protection of native and exotic animals. Located in scenic Prescott, Arizona, the sanctuary provides a source of recreation, education and entertainment for all ages. With the mission of "Conservation through Education," Heritage Park Zoological Sanctuary provides a unique and up-close experience with animals visitors may see nowhere else. Animals at Heritage Park Zoological Sanctuary all have a story to tell and lesson to teach. We currently house more than 200 animals on our grounds - among them a Bengal Tiger, two Black Bears, two Clouded Leopard siblings, Mexican Gray Wolves, Bobcats, Lynx, Lemurs, various reptiles, and one of the largest tarantula displays in the Southwest.

If I was an animal in this tiny zoo, I would petition to be left where I was "rescued". The poor tiger and most other animals have a tiny hut to hang out in and a pen that it all rocks, dirt with no water...More

While visiting Prescott, we took the family to the Heritage Park Zoo. Good variety of animals, exotic and local wildlife species. They’re a sanctuary for some, like a bald eagle with a permanently injured wing. Price was reasonable. And they have a covered area with...More

This is a wonderful zoo, they do not buy or breed animals, strictly rescue and sanctuary. We saw everything from local wildlife, like coyotes and javelina, and especially enjoyed the very informative talk before they fed the tiger. Kids enjoyed walking around with the peacocks...More

We spent about an hour there. As others have noted, it is a very small zoo, and no food is available. And definitely go in the morning during the summer!
