Heritage Park Zoological Sanctuary is a non-profit wildlife sanctuary, dedicated to the conservation and protection of native and exotic animals. Located in scenic Prescott, Arizona, the sanctuary provides a source of recreation, education and entertainment for all ages. With the mission of "Conservation through Education," Heritage Park Zoological Sanctuary provides a unique and up-close experience with animals visitors may see nowhere else. Animals at Heritage Park Zoological Sanctuary all have a story to tell and lesson to teach. We currently house more than 200 animals on our grounds - among them a Bengal Tiger, two Black Bears, two Clouded Leopard siblings, Mexican Gray Wolves, Bobcats, Lynx, Lemurs, various reptiles, and one of the largest tarantula displays in the Southwest.

we really enjoyed our visit. We were there right at opening and they were cleaning enclosures and feeding, so we were able to see many of the animals eating. It's also a very nice walk!

They take great care of the animals. It is also a great place to spend time with family. They have a play ground for kids too. Make sure and see the tiger feeding.

We spent about an hour there. As others have noted, it is a very small zoo, and no food is available. And definitely go in the morning during the summer!
