We were here several time in February (of 2014 actually) and enjoyed the walking trails with the different ecosystems. Lots of different birds. One morning, we went on a guided birdwalk with a local naturalist. It was great. Will be going here again next time in Tucson!

A nice park for families but also if you just want to meander around and appreciate what is being done to preserve this park. I noticed that the palm trees needed to be trimmed but when I mentioned it to the park worker she told me that they're kept that way for animal habitats. There is also a pond for... More

Found this park thanks to trip advisor. This park is one of the oldest in the area and definitely a Oasis in the desert. Lots of birds and other creatures to view while having your picnic. Well cared for site with good facilities including a small nature gift store. Good historical information supplied on your walk on one of the... More

Stopped by here for a quick look around and walk. Nicely developed park with trails that are easy to follow. It ended up being quite warm so we didn't get terribly far but we could see that this is a popular spot with the locals. Nice picnic facilities as well.

This is a small, quiet park with paved trails. The water feature and palm trees are unique to Tucson. I recommend for a one hour, uncrowded getaway.

After a day of hiking, spending an afternoon with a picnic lunch at this oasis was wonderful. The water is once again being maintained after some drought years so the area is beautiful. The ducks were swimming, the egrets flying around and the turtles sunning themselves nicely on this fine spring day. Agua Caliente Park is a great gift to... More

This small park on the far east side has a different feel compared to others in the area. The palm trees seem out of place next to the cacti. It is a good family park with lots of picnic areas. The ranch house has a small art exhibit of local artists. It is a pleasant place to spend a couple... More

We enjoyed walking along the paths in this park, listening to birds, seeing a variety of ducks and a turtle in the pond plus seeing cactus and mesquite trees in one area and palm trees in another.

So glad my sister recommended we take a lunch to this park! We saw a different part of Tucson than we'd been in before and really liked this area. The park was a very pleasant surprise for us. Can only imagine its popularity in the hot months as an oasis in the desert. Wonderful palm trees, other trees, reeds and... More
