While sightseeing in Mt Lemon, a gentleman kindly pointed the "oasis on the desert" below. He kindly gave us directions. After ascending the mountain, we immediately went to this beautiful scenery. What an awesome surprise. It was worth the trip.

The whole area surrounding this fabulous park is dry and desert. You walk inside this park and there are palm trees, green grass, and water! There were turtles swimming around and a ton of birds! We played football in the grassy area until it got too dark to see. There are paths to walk on and plenty of shoreline to... More

Was at the park very early to watch birds. Understand that the park / wild life has suffered from low water levels the last few years and that there is an effort to pump water back into the ponds. The bird life seems to have not minded... lots of species, especially wood peckers

Lots of trees in the first part of the park. Different scenery then other parts of Tucson. Great place for watercolors.

Great facilities, the county has cleaned the pond and it is in the process of refilling. Good sites for barbeque with tables.

This is a real treasure. The green grass, lake, turtles, ducks, palms and wonderful places to sit or tables to picnic, all add to the delight of this park.

We were on a tight budget on a trip to Tucson from Phoenix for high school football games and needed a place to sit, relax, and have a picnic, partially to kill time. I looked on Trip Advisor for parks and this one intrigued me...so we went. VERY happy with the park. Lush green grass, a lot of shade, beautiful... More

Well, I am happy to say that the water is back up at Agua Caliente! I love wildlife and to see those turtles "sunbathing" on the log is just too much! Now, I didn't see as many as I have in previous visits, but that could be due to timing. This place really is serene. Don't expect a huge national... More

Certainly was not expecting a natural spring here, but sure enough here it was. Walking around this park there were moments when I forgot I was in Tucson. A beautiful place to come for some quiet mental rejuvenation.

On Tucson's far east side this desert oasis park has lots to look at, nice walking trails. Family picnic areas. A nice place to relax and escape the city.
