Heritage Park Zoological Sanctuary
Heritage Park and its volunteers are dedicated to the conservation and protection of wildlife, caring for more than 200 indigenous and exotic mammals, reptiles, and birds in a 10-acre haven north of Prescott, Arizona, overlooking Willow Lake. Many of Heritage Park's animals were previously injured, abandoned, or marked with a human imprint that prevents them from rejoining their wild habitats. While prowling through the sanctuary, visitors might spy a mountain lion that was kept as a pet, a black bear that was orphaned by his mother, or a fox rescued from a swimming pool. The park features a covered picnic pavilion, a children's playground, and large, naturally landscaped enclosures for the animals with paths that allow visitors the opportunity to get an up-close and personal view of the park's residents. Additional exhibits include the Tarantula Grotto, Wallaby Walk-About, and Kiwanis Korner Animal Encounter.
Heritage Park also plays an important role in the Association of Zoos & Aquariums’ Species Survival Plan, granting asylum to critically endangered Mexican gray wolves, which are being reintroduced into the wild after a 20-year absence. The zoological sanctuary is open every day, with extended hours from May 1 to October 31, and occasional after-hours events which provide the opportunity for guests to see some of the sanctuary's nocturnal animals that are not normally out during the day.
