Sad, took my granddaughter. The animals looked sick & lethargic. The cages were small animals had little room to roam. The snack bars were dirty, trash cans were overflowing. The bees & flys were so bad we had to abandon our food, which was not good anyways. It was a very bad experience.

Reid Park Zoo is small, but well maintained. And of course, because it's Tucson, you can go all year long and be comfortable.

The price to get in is fair compared to other places I've been. However, here's something I've never seen: you can pet and feed the giraffe! There isn't a petting zoo, but you can pay $2 to feed and pet the giraffe!

And yes, it's worth it.

We really like this zoo, it's not too big that you feel overwhelmed in taking the kids to all of the different exhibits and you can see the animals up close. The kids really like the otter exhibit, especially when the otters are out swimming around.

Who knew the desert could inhabit a Polar Bear? Yet, thats just what the Reid Park Zoo has done. With quite alot of other exhibits, like the Flamingo walk around. Right in the heart of Tucson. Its small but consider getting a pass to the Phoenix Zoo. It is not much more than the Reid Pass and it allows you access to Both Zoos!!! The Phoenix Zoo is of Course much Much larger. And whenever your traveling your Phoenix pass allows access into larger zoos around the country.

PROS: small walking zoo with great animals
CONS: questionable parking area, don't leave valueables in car

While this isn't the San Diego Zoo, it is a very good local zoo. They have a lot of animals, and I always have fun going here with my nieces and nephews. They especially love the polar bears and flamingos. There is a nice gift shop here too and food throughout the zoo.

We enjoy our visits at Reid Park Zoo. Although it's not quite as big as we'd like, it has enough animals to keep the little ones occupied and happy. They have the usual animals: tigers, bears, lions, birds, elephants, etc. The kids love to take pictures of them especially when they're doing "silly" things. Afterwards, there's a gift shop where you can buy a souvenir. I would recommend sunblock and iced water for those long, hot, strolls along the zoo. There's also a nice park nearby for a picnic! Being a smaller zoo, it also doesn't cost too much to get in!! Very cost effective for a family who wants to spend some time together.

The Reid Park Zoo is a fun place to go, especially with small children who get cranky after an hour. You can easily see the entire zoo in about an hour or so because it is small. It has a variety of animals, but certainly not a wide variety. If you can take the trip and want to spend a longer time at a zoo seeing more animals, you would do better to go to the Phoenix zoo.

Nestled in the heart of Reid Park in central Tucson is the small but surprisingly diverse Reid Park Zoo. Highlights include tigers, giraffes, elephants, and polar bears! The kids love the animals. My favorite thing about this zoo is its size. It is perfect for very young children with little patience. You can make the loop around the zoo in 30 minutes and see the major attractions. The cost is also very attractive - a $40 annual membership gets you unlimited visits for your entire family. Also, as a TZS member, you are entitled to free admission to many zoos around the country.

It's great entertainment for the little ones at a very reasonable price.

PROS: Central location, low prices
CONS: Fewer animals than most larger zoos

We just moved here from San Diego and I like Reid Park Zoo a lot better than The San Diego Zoo. It's easy to walk through, with no hills. You can see almost all of the animals. They have special promotions for members...speaking of, a family pass is very affordable! Only $40! The staff is very friendly and helpful. My daughter loves getting the stamps. We love this zoo!

PROS: Easy to walk through, very affordable, nice staff
CONS: Parking lot needs more shade.

The Reid Park Zoo is located in central Tucson and is a great spot for entertaining kids. It is not a very far drive from any point in Tucson due to its central location.

Reid Park Zoo is a great place to visit. Although it's not a very big zoo, it has a lot of the more common animals: bears, tigers, lions, elephant, monkeys. They also have flamingos and a polar bear. Located in Tucson, AZ, it gets very hot there in the summer. Sunblock and a water bottle filled with ice cold water is a must! Also, don't forget your camera. My family and I enjoy seeing the animals and then going to the shop after our short, but fun, adventure.

For just $5, you get a very nice day at the local zoo. I love taking my nephews and nieces there as well as when I get a day off, I love to just go myself and take a stroll and look at all the animals. It is very peaceful and a great place to get away from it all. This is a treasure in the middle of the city. It can be a nice place to go to just relax. And at just $5, you can't beat that. They do have discounts as well for senior citizens and others. I love checking out the lions and polar bears as well as the monkeys. I always get a chuckle out of the monkeys. A couple of them always tend to do something that is hilarious as you are walking by. This is a fun place to visit all year round. If you go in the summer, make sure to take lots of water as the summer heat can reach 110 degrees or more. In any other season, it is very nice to walk to the zoo.
