Reid Park Zoo Reviews & Ratings

  • I love this zoo! I have been coming here for 30 years and have made a lot of memories here! My family has a special spot in the zoo that I share with my kids every time we go and we go a lot. They have had field trips and the kids enjoy sharing our spot with their classmates too. The behind the scenes experiences are well worth it- we picked the giraffes! 🦒

  • The zoo still rocks! Haven't been in a few years. Great place to take people of all ages. Love the fact that they ask to keep the coins from whatever you purchase, so it can go back to help support the care, etc of the animals.

  • Nice little zoo! They have a good selection of animals and the whole space is a good size. Not too daunting for those unaccustomed to a lot of walking. We especially enjoyed watching the Andean bear splash around in its enclosure!

  • BEST ZOO I HAVE EVER BEEN TO!!! Amazing animal variety and welfare, plenty of stations to inform you about the animals, nice friendly staff, and sufficient bathrooms! The animals have good sized enclosures, adequate food and hydration, and sometimes a neat little interaction to get closer to the animals. For example, the prairie dogs have little pop up bubbles to let you get in their exhibit. One complaint, I do not think there is enough shade for the guests, it gets hot, like, really hot. Otherwise the best zoo I have ever had the pleasure of visiting!

  • I love this Zoo. We purchased a membership just so we can come as much as possible. It is small enough to do after or before DR appointments in Tucson. Kiss also love the carousel. Highly recommended.

  • Does Reid Park Zoo have Scooter Rentals for seniors?

    Answer Report Abuse
    • I did not find this information on the official website of the zoo, so I think it would be better to call the zoo on (520) 791-4022 to confirm.

  • My grandkids are coming to visit me here in Tucson and would like to visit the zoo. Would you please send me directions how to get there from Ina Rd. and I-10?

    Answer Report Abuse
    • hi,

      If you are coming from Ina Rd. and I-10, exit the I-10 after The Arizona Riverpark Inn Hotel and continue. Join the S Freeway and take a left turn on the W 22nd Street to reach the Reid Park Zoo.
