Great little zoo

Very nice interactive zoo. Great for little one's and easy to see in a short period on a hot day. Highly recommended.

It was rather disappointing. I have lived in other locales with fabulous zoos; this isn't one. It's small, not very imaginative. Probably fine for small children and older adults with limited mobility and endurance. I could think of better places to spend my money. Once was enough; not been back.

Our Tucson Zoo is not large. Just right for families with young children with stroller and perfect for older people with limited walking abilities. There is a nice park adjacent to the zoo for a picnic lunch and to let the kids run around.

Spent the morning and afternoon at reid park zoo, and we all, me g/ma and 4 year old had a great time. First of all the zoo is fairly small but the enclosures they have for the animals are large.. Lots of peacocks to brighten the place up, and kiddo even took a camel ride... After exiting the zoo, there... More

The zoo get you very close to all the wild life in this park. I felt safe and received a good education on all of the animals here. Some of which had never seen before, Great place fr kids and adults alike. Definitely worth becoming a member if you live close by.

Awesome place to go with family, with out without children. I attend often so that i can support our local zoo. Love the elephants and feeding the giraffes. Wish we had a reptile house.... hopefully one day if we support our zoo enough it may be able to expand♡

A rather small zoo; however, the area provides vast shade from the hot sun. The animals and their exhibits are very well kept and easy to view. A great place for an adventure for kids, parents and grandparents alike. Refreshments and a gift shop are also on the grounds.

Went to the zoo with our grandchildren and had a great time. They enjoyed the animals and all the zoo had to offer. They had great rides and animal rides they truly enjoyed. Great place for kids and then we had a great picnic across from the zoo. Beautiful park with a small lake with ducks and all. Really enjoyed... More
