  • Be sure to take a look at the old house, which is now a sort of museum/gift shop. There are guided bird watching tours as well, in the early mornings, but it's nice to just go it alone. Lots of water ...  more »

  • Awesome Oasis in the middle of nowhere. Mostly quite, lots of palm trees and grass. Large pound with lots of wildlife to see, no swimming or fishing. Trails to walk, picnic tables and a few grills. Nice clean restrooms. Great place for relaxing with great photo opportunities.
  • Always love a visit to Agua Caliente park when I am in Tucson. It's a real oasis. Did you know...Agua Caliente was on the cover of the November 1955 issue of Arizona Highways. The photo was taken by famous Tucson photographer, Esther Henderson; and the park was still called "Filiatraut ranch" at that time.
  • Nice to see it coming back. A little more clean up is needed and more water. We happened upon a turtle laying eggs in the brush. Amazing to watch. Definitely worth a visit and we look forward to the restoration.
  • Water smells. Most of the area is blocked off and your limited on where you can go. Nice trees and lots of shade. Pictures were going on for a wedding. Great place for pics.
  • We love this park! Love the turtles and the fish and ducks. Beautiful water.

Where to stay in Tucson

To discover the tranquility of the Sonoran Desert, book your stay at an inn just a short drive from Tucson. Staying on the outskirts of the city allows you quick and easy access to some of Arizona's wildest areas, though it does require a car if you wish to enjoy Tucson's shops and restaurants. For the ultimate in indulgence, consider one of the city's award-winning luxury resorts, which feature full-service spa and fitness centers, championship golf courses, lighted tennis courts, and indoor swimming pools.
