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.

We’re aware that these uncertain times are limiting many aspects of life as we all practice social and physical distancing. While we’re continuing to feature destinations that make our state wonderful, we don’t expect or encourage you to go check them out immediately. We believe that supporting local attractions is important now more than ever and we hope our articles inspire your future adventures!

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.
