Cool and relaxing

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.

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

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

Did the Agua Caliente Trail this morning. This was definitely harder than I imagined as you got closer to the peak. The first 2.65 miles were fun and rolling hills with some switchbacks here and there. When you got to the last portion of the ascent, it was 600 ft up in about 0.5 miles... meaning it was a lung...

This is a lovely well-kept park and is part of the Pima county park system. It's a true oasis in the desert. There are many attractive sites with picnic tables. Dogs are allowed on leash only. An art gallery is located in the former France house. Large ponds with wildlife. This is a perfect place for a cool and peaceful... More

This park is so different from its surrounding environment that it really stands out. You just do not see palm trees in the desert too often. Combined with the water and the bird life, it is quite a refreshing place. It is quite scenic for photos as well.

Loved walking the trails around this palm tree lined small lake. Lots of birds and wildlife to spot. We walked all around the main lake and hiked the trails around the spill area. Some weekends they have guided walks with bird experts. That would be good to check their web site for.

Wonderful place for bird watching in a desert oasis, pack a lunch and enjoy this beautiful setting.There is a Audubon office along with an Art Gallery. The home is original home furnished as it was in its period.
