Reid Park Zoo, Tucson

(800+ reviews on the web)
Zoo / Aquarium
Observe animals big and small from various corners of the world at Reid Park Zoo. At just under 10 hectares (24 acres), the zoo doesn't cover a lot of ground, but it makes up for this with the diverse animal life it presents. Tour the four zones here: the adaptation zone with its grizzly bear and giant tortoise, the South America zone with a resident jaguar, the Asian zone with its tiger, and the African animals zone with its lion and giraffe. The zoo caters to children by offering rides on its miniature train and a play zone with water-spraying structures. For a deeper educational experience, check the schedule for zookeeper chats and training demonstrations. By using our Tucson travel itinerary planner, you can arrange your visit to Reid Park Zoo and other attractions in Tucson.

  • This is probably my favorite zoo in the whole world. They have a lot of space in each exhibit for each animal. The staff are very friendly. I think that the animals are really happy, too. At least compared to other zoos. I love it here, and visit each time I'm in Tucson.
  • A far as zoos go, this is a small one. Through the years I have watched them expand and grow as the collection within its walls do the same. There is plenty to do, learn and see so don't be fooled by the size. I would like to see changes as I am comparing this zoo to others I have seen, but I am sure budgeting and space prevent these changes from happening. The animals appear to be well cared for.
  • Grea time! Got there early, a little after 8, & was a perfect time too see the animals in the 1st sections we went to. Later animals were already asleep or hiding out. Great place!
  • Can't complain can't complain love this zoo since I was 4 years old and now I am 24 almost 25 years old. I still go because of good memories of family and now going with friends.
  • The zoo has definitely come up. Nice and clean, not overly priced food. Animals are super close. It was just overall a great experience. My family had a blast, will definitely be coming back.
