The park has undergone some major upgrades and we really enjoyed our day at the zoo. We went with 3 teens and an 11 year old and they had a great time. There is ample shade for while you are walking through the grounds. We did not eat on site, nor stop at the shop.

We had a great day at the zoo. Purchased the adult wristband; camel ride, carousel & train ride were included. The animals were active and visible during our early day visit. We fed the giraffes carrots and watched the zoo staff feed many animals. Many school groups were out and about but plenty of room for everyone. Super place for... More

I have visited many zoos across the world, this didn't have the range of animals of many zoos I visited nor is it the largest but I do like the fact it highlights the risk factor of the various animals making it easy for even small children to recognise. The ramada with all of the activities at the elephants was... More

Reid Park Zoo really offers something different to do in Tucson. Amazing how they can recreate different country styles in the middle of the desert! Staff is friendly and the place is well organize. You can be here all day and have lots of fun especially if you have kids!

This is a great zoo to visit for the price. The animal exhibits are really done nicely. The aviaries are especially nice with many unique birds. We went on a week day in April, so it was not crowded at all. On weekends I am sure it is more crowded as there were concession stands throughout that were not open... More

It's a great zoo. If you have a young child the extra pass for unlimited carousel rides is worth it. It also comes with a pass for a train ride and a camel ride. The catch being an adult has to pay to be with the child on the train and camel rides. On the carousel, if the adult stands,... More
