Most People Don’t Know About This Underrated Zoo Hiding In Arizona
A zoo? In Prescott? That’s right—it may be lesser-known than our big city zoos, but Heritage Park Zoological Sanctuary is every bit as entertaining. Meet exotic animals, brave a house full of spiders, watch bears and mountain lions getting fed, and beat the crowds often found at larger wildlife parks.
Hours are 10 a.m. until 4 p.m. daily. Admission is $10 for adults ages 13-64, $6 for children 3-12, and $8 for seniors, military, and students (with ID.) Kids under three, as well as zoo members, get in free. Visit the zoo’s website or Facebook page to learn more.
