Tucson does everything a little differently, including our parks! Agua Caliente, literally meaning hot water, is a unique 101-acre park that features a perennial warm spring and pond that is home to an exceptionally rich mix of plants and animals. Agua Caliente Park has a long and interesting history, with evidence of human habitation dating back about 5,500 years. Of course, it has been updated quite a bit since then. The park now has many modern conveniences like benches, restrooms, and drinking fountains, yet still holds onto its historical charm. Bring a lunch to use the grills and picnic tables to have a memorable afternoon in the shade of mature palm trees and native mesquite trees!
That’s not all you can do at the park. You can also visit the renovated 1870s Ranch House Visitor Center and Art Gallery, tour the park on one of the many naturalist led walks, and browse through the many bird-related items for sale in Tucson Audubon Society’s Nature Shop. Don’t forget to stroll the network of accessible paved and gravel trails with interpretive signs that explain the geology and history of the warm spring and the natural and human history of the site.
