Certainly was not expecting a natural spring here, but sure enough here it was. Walking around this park there were moments when I forgot I was in Tucson. A beautiful place to come for some quiet mental rejuvenation.

On Tucson's far east side this desert oasis park has lots to look at, nice walking trails. Family picnic areas. A nice place to relax and escape the city.

This regional park offers nice places for a family gathering as well as guided historical tours and great bird watching. The art gallery is an added bonus.

Another "out of the way" place of solitude from the busy traffic of Tucson. Great spot for a picnic with the family or a "senior afternoon". Small lake with duck and turtles. You need GPS or a good "co-pilot" directing you. It is out of...More

I've been going to Agua Caliente Park for many years. It's still a nice, pleasurable spot to cool off in Tucson. Hidden on the far east side of town, It's much less trampled down than most tourist attractions. Seriously, I'm happy about that. It's a...More
