I was totally surprised to see the beautiful water and tree features in this park. I truly wasn't expecting to turn the corner and see such a beautiful oasis. So many types of birds, beautiful trees, and a place where one can find a sense...More

Towering palms; historic buildings; grassy expanses; and a big pond. All contribute to the 101-acre Agua Caliente Park, a not-so-well-known oasis on the northeast side of town. My most recent visit here occurred with a friend on a Saturday morning before 8 a.m. The big...More

Take your time and enjoy the house and grounds. You can take a picnic and eat by the lake, then work off your calories wandering around the property.

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...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...More

There's enough wildlife there that I'd think your dog could stress it, even on a leash. But you might want call (520) 724-5000 to be sure about the rules if Fido really MUST come out to this oasis.
