Unique historic park that came to life as a hot springs. Good birding, beautiful setting. Audubon has a small shop there and there are nature walks, historical tours and lectures. Great find!

What an unexpected delight here in the desert. It brings to mind the parks of the eastern U.S., where I grew up. Beautiful pond with ducks, shade trees, picnic areas, small waterfalls,.........just wonderful. A great place to take family or senior pictures. This is also where the Tucson Audobon Society is housed - in the original Ranch home. It is said that a Rancher from the EAST build this oasis for his wife to remind her of the homeland she left behind. What a wonderful place!! Pack a picnic lunch and enjoy a walk at Agua Caliente Park!

Go early for an amazing number of bird species and other wildlife, or come later to picnic and tour the old ranch house with its art gallery.

Admission is free. The natural sights are free. The experience is fabulous!

This small park has a lake, nature trails, wild animals, ducks, turtles, picnic tables, benches, gift shop. Never many people there. Love it!
