  • Any time my daughter and I visit Prescott we make it to Heritage Park. We easily spend an hour and a half walking around talking to all the animals. We love reading and hearing about each of there stories. As my kiddo says, "This place renews our faith in humanity because they do what is right for each pet." We are clearly animal lovers and enjoy seeing how each team member knows all the animals names and stories. Each team member is so friendly, kind and helpful. We love Heritage Park and are thankful for all the fantastic care they give to each individual animal. Thank you for all you do!
  • A clean and interesting place to visit in the Prescott community. There are several built in cooking areas which are perfect for a summer get together with the family. The lake is nice, however it is unsuitable for swimming. Great dock to fish from as well as get a great view of both the sunrise and sunset. Plenty of hiking trails suitable for the entire family! Don't forget to pack water and bring some money for parking.
  • We've visited several times over the past 3years. Smaller place, very laid back. Not crowded so it's easy to stroll around at your own pace and relax. Good play area for the kids to finish working off any left over energy :)
  • What a great place to visit. Whether you a child or an adult. Great animals and superb staff. And their Christmas Light display fabulous!
  • You can get up close to the animals, and the staff is open to questions. They were informative about the care of the animals. Love this little zoo.
