This park has a history of being a ranch, resort, and other uses. The ponds are fed by hot springs. There are plenty of native palms and mesquite trees for shape. It is a unique oasis in the high desert, near the base of the mountains. There are a number of asphalt and prepared trails to stroll. The numerous picnic... More

This park is one of our favorites in Tucson. Even when we lived here, few knew about it. There used to be four ponds fed by a spring but only one has been completely full over the past several years. It appears that some landscaping is in progress near one of the empty ponds. This park is part of Pima... More

More remote and less crowded than Sabino canyon but with views and trails that are just as good. A great way to spend time outdoors, get some exercise and see the amazing Tucson desert.

As a nature lover and Southwest History buff, I have been researching, visiting, and photographing this park on and off for decades now and just love it. In the late 19th Century, it was a heath spa because it has natural hot springs that feed the local ponds and attract lots of beautiful local and migratory birds. In addition, it... More

this place is very popular for photographs because of the stunning palms as well as the little lake full of ducks and turtles. But also a great place for a picnic or a little get away from the hustle and bustle from everyday life.

I walk to here as often as I can - it's beautiful, peaceful and so serene. It is an oasis in the middle of our desert. I donate to its care on a monthly basis - if I had the money, I'd buy it from the county and take care of it myself. It's a personal love of mine!

While sightseeing in Mt Lemon, a gentleman kindly pointed the "oasis on the desert" below. He kindly gave us directions. After ascending the mountain, we immediately went to this beautiful scenery. What an awesome surprise. It was worth the trip.

The whole area surrounding this fabulous park is dry and desert. You walk inside this park and there are palm trees, green grass, and water! There were turtles swimming around and a ton of birds! We played football in the grassy area until it got too dark to see. There are paths to walk on and plenty of shoreline to... More

Was at the park very early to watch birds. Understand that the park / wild life has suffered from low water levels the last few years and that there is an effort to pump water back into the ponds. The bird life seems to have not minded... lots of species, especially wood peckers
