Amazing zoo. The perfect size to see everything without wearing everyone out. They are continually coming out with new exhibits, improving enclosures, and providing exciting educational opportunities. Don’t buy admission become a member! It’s totally worth it.
I’m always impressed with how patient and willing to talk the zookeepers are and the staff in the marketplace are super nice.
I loved the zoo and the huge park! I love the dog park for my furry friend. Albeit, the water feature for the geese was filthy which detracted somewhat from the beautifully landscaped grounds.

This zoo is fantastic. Relatively small, but an impressive array of animals & very intimate. I’ve never been closer to lions or tigers. Incredibly clean, super friendly staff, and well-priced (family membership for a year was less than 70 dollars). We love bringing our kids here.
I don’t know what we’d do without this zoo! It’s big enough to keep my kids busy, but small enough that we can leave quickly if they get tired. The South America loop has a lot of shade which is lovely. They are updating several exhibits which is nice to see. Parking is easy.
Reid Park Zoo is a great local Tucson attraction that has that small zoo feel while having a good variety of animals. We always enjoy our time wandering and can spend a couple hours walking the zoo. Being a smaller zoo, you can easily accomplish the whole loop in only a few hours
