Sweetwater Wetlands Park
Located in: Westside District
Sweetwater Wetlands is open to the public seven days a week for self-guided tours (see below). Gates to the facility open approximately one hour before sunrise and close approximately one hour after sunset.
Tucson Water and Arizona Project WET have partnered to provide a series of self-guided tours at
the Sweetwater Wetlands. The new Discovery Program engages visitors in explorations that lead
them on a journey along the path that surrounds the settling ponds and recharge basins.
Discovery Program Journeys start at the main kiosk. Guests can use a QR code reader app on any
smart device to view the Wetlands in a scientific way as they navigate around the 60-acre site.
There are Botany, Hydrology, Ornithology, and Wildlife Biology Journeys available. The
Hydrology Journey was developed in collaboration with Tucson Water hydrologists Dick
Thompson and Margaret Snyder. It illustrates the surface water-groundwater connection and how
water is managed in Tucson.
