First, no it's not San Diego Zoo. It is however a very good zoo and we in Tucson should be proud of it. It has a good section of animals and their enclosures seem well suited for them. We have gone many times and it has never failed to impress. Suggest you don't pay for admission - just get the... More

Great shade between exhibits so hot Arizona sun was not an issue. Great area for elephants - young baby elephant was cute. Missed the polar bear.

We had a great time and the zoo was quite well cared for. Buy the family pass for the year and it is quite economical.

This is just the right sized zoo for families with young children. There are enough displays to fell you got your money's worth. $10.50 adults, $8.50 seniors, $6.50 for children. In the morning there is time when you can feed the giraffes for $3.00. You are given two carrot sticks and when you hold them out the giraffes will wrap... More

I wasn't impressed with the zoo. The cages were dirty and smelled, attractions looked like they need a new coat of paint. The place looked run down to me and didn't have very many animals

Spent several hours here; one could spend much more time just watching the animals. Very interesting printed info on each exhibit re what the animals like to eat, etc. Viewers are really close to some of the animals. You can even go on a camel ride for a small extra fee. We also enjoyed watching the excitement of children viewing... More

I highly enjoyed this zoo. It was well mapped, easy to get around and see everything. They had a wide variety of animals. Loved the giraffes!

I was crazy excited to go to the zoo, and while it was fun and I saw a lot of the animals, I was a little disheartened that there were so many I wasn't able to see because they were in areas of the enclosures where they weren't visible.

Small enough to go through in a couple of hours or stay for the day. Interesting selection of animals. Convenient parking. Good for families or couples.
