“funky and unique”
Reviewed 30 December 2012

I love taking my son and nephew here, especially for special events like the yearly Halloween show. It's a great family place that provides fun and entertainment without costing a fortune, and it shows that you can have a good time without visiting overly-loud, in-your-face kinds of places like Peter Piper. If you are looking for a wholesome family activity with a little bit of "magic," check out one of the shows here!

It is a wonderful place to take children. The wonders of the imagination are explored here especially at night.

“Hidden Gem: Tucson's Fairyland”
Reviewed 16 April 2012

Valley of the Moon is absolutely wonderful! This nonprofit attraction is run by volunteers, many of them dressed like fairies and other magical creatures. There is nothing high tech about the grounds; picture winding paths revealing little rock fairy-sized houses. I can't think of anywhere else in Tucson where the innocence of children is honored, the core values are kindness and imagination, with zero commercialism. They offer a variety of events such as Peter Pan productions featuring local teen actors, a Halloween production, story telling, historic tours, music and quirky events. Check the website or Facebook page before visiting, they aren't open every day. Most events are held for donation and are free for little kids. It is well worth the effort to find the Valley of the Moon hidden north of Prince off Tucson Blvd.

“Totally one-of-a-kind with a great history and message”
Reviewed 29 November 2011

This is one of those hidden quirky unique places that can't be found anywhere else. It is a simple mixture of props, theatre, and one's imagination-- please bring your imagination and good humor with you. It's great for young kids and family fun! Please note that there are no "frills" here, just simple old-fashioned fun.

The volunteers that run this mini-park put on shows throughout the year. One of their goals is to preserve the original owner's very important message, which is wonderful. We try to go every year and enjoy it (and we are all adults!). This establishment is truly unique. For more information, check out their website.
