As a family that enjoys cycling, finding 'the loop' was a score. We visited this many times primarily to be able to ride safely. It is a shared path and bicycle riders need to give way to everyone.

Ok, greenery and gladed suclusion are difficult to come by in Tucson, still this park offers none of that. At best there are a few trees and somewhere to park your car. If you want to walk or cycle along the Rillito this is a good place to start, but it feels like it has just been built. It is... More

The many entrances, exits, and bridges to cross over let you determine how long you'd like to bike, jog, or walk. Sometimes there's shade and sometimes not. People are polite and many groups of friends can be seen together. This is an ideal way to get be outside while burning a few calories.

The park was a nice surprise. Learned a lot from a knowledgable guide. The dry river bed is still interesting.

Nice park surrounded by paved trails on the Rillito walking/bike path. The park is interesting but nothing that is a can't miss.

The Scottish Highland Games are held at Rillito and it is great fun for everyone. This is a meeting of the Clans.
