We had our grand kids (3 and 1.5) for a week and decided the zoo for an outing and were very happy. Enough animals to see and a nice walk up and down the hills. The playground was also a big hit with the kids.

This zoo is a sanctuary for animals that have no where else to go due to injury, homelessness and other reasons. It is great for the whole family. There is a play area for children and picnic pavillion so you can bring a picnic for the zoo. The animals have great enclosures and are well cared for. My grandsons loved... More

The kids enjoyed this zoo in Prescott. They have quite a variety of animals to see. My children especially enjoyed watching them feed the black bear and playing on the playground after our visit.

Very rustic zoo with wide assortment of animals including rescued local animals. Not your fancy bells and whistles zoo, but you get up close and personal with the critters.

I appreciate the fact that this is s place for injured and misplaced animals who cannot survive in the wild. It is a wonderful thing for humans to intervene and give them medical care and a forever home. This zoo is small and uncrowded, only 10$ entrance and you can take your time. Get there early before the animals all... More

The Heritage Park Zoo is not necessarily a MUST do in Prescott, but for zoo enthusiasts and kids I was quite impressed with the variety of animals on display. The zoo is well organized and the animals all appear to be well-cared for which is always a concern I have when visiting a zoo. It is well-designed to move through... More

We took a neice here last summer. She really enjoyed the exhibits. She loves cats so the mountain lion was a big hit.
