Agua Caliente Park is located in NE Tucson, Arizona. On a late night in October 1993, the Friends of Agua Caliente (FOAC) was formed in an effort to save a historic site in the Tanque Verde Valley. The organization was successful in saving three of the Agua Caliente Park’s original five buildings. Although this grassroots organization remains small, the conviction of "The Friends" remains intact. Today, FOAC is working to preserve the contemplative nature of this "oasis in the desert" along with its natural Sonoran desert plant and wildlife habitats. The Friends of Agua Caliente is a 501 (c) (3) non-profit corporation. Donations to FOAC are tax deductible. FOAC mailing address: PO Box 32005, Tucson, AZ 85751.

  • It's a great little oasis in the middle of nowhere. We decided to check it out while in town and the whole family decided to go back again. It's the perfect place to escape from the desert and relax. They do have restrictions on what you can have at the park, but bring a blanket and lunch and friends and you're set. The paths are nice, some are paved some aren't, but it's fairly ADA. You can even visit the old ranch house and see local art.
  • Awesome Oasis in the middle of nowhere. Mostly quite, lots of palm trees. Large pound with lots of wildlife to see, no swimming or fishing. Trails to walk, picnic tables and a few grills. Nice clean restrooms. Great place for relaxing with great photo opportunities. Three new pounds have been added and more paved walking paths.
