Moon Valley Park in Phoenix is a tucked away neighborhood park that has a lot to offer! We stopped by Moon Valley this week, after not visiting for over 3 years, and were happy to find a wonderful remodel! This park has some fun new features while also being inviting to younger ages.
The playground is spread out, but easily viewable from all angles. There are two playgrounds, for toddlers and older children, swings, two spinning seats, and a monkey bar set. Slides are plenty! Test your skills on multiple climbing bar areas as well.
New to this park is a cool web like structure that kids will love climbing on! We spent most of our visit here. This small area is also covered and has sand, while the rest of the playground is woodchips. Look for the oversized (fake) ants hidden in the sand!
Also near the playgrounds are restrooms, tennis courts, and basketball courts. Our kids use to love to ride scooters around the basketball courts and paths too! The path continues two ways. To the east, past the parking lot, is a large grassy area and access to the next door neighborhood. To the west is a large bridge (you can’t miss it), and loops around a huge grassy area. There is also exercise equipment along the path.
The wash under the bridge is fun to explore too. Sometimes it can be littered with trash, and may attract snakes or scorpions depending on the time of year. So use caution when exploring.
Moon Valley Park in Phoenix has two ramadas by the playground, and two benches. Our one complaint about this park is the lack of seating options. Even simple benches would be welcomed. But overall, it is a fun place to take the kids, and the remodel is lovely.
