Completely different from anything you will see in the area. The ranch house is a nice little guided tour. Pleasant grounds with palm trees and ponds from springs. Peaceful. Have a picnic. Close to town.

This park is lush. Water and palm trees would have you thinking coastland, not desert. It’s a very serene place. We enjoyed walking around and just sitting staring out at the lake. Plan to spend about an hour.

If you are in the Tucson area and just looking to do a shorter walk around some interesting grounds with your dog, head to Agua Caliente. The three ponds allow for some unusual plants and more animal activity if you need a little more variety...More
