This place has been in the papers over the years for violent crimes. I won't ride my bike along Chester Creek which passes through here due to the interesting population in the woods near this park. Before going here, do your research. Kate M, you...More

It seems like it should be great, but there is a lot of interesting things going on that make me feel a little unsafe and not want to turn my back on my kids for any fraction of time.

Just off of downtown, this is a really nice little park in the woods. There's a salmon stream running through it and a good playground and a couple good open areas.

You may learn a lot about a community by spending some time at a local park. The activities I've seen here have been diverse, and that's good! It is family oriented, and a meeting place for the less fortunate people in Anchorage. I felt good...More

My kids needed to burn off some energy and this place was an easy place to go. It's nothing super special, but when you have little kids, you don't really need special.

A valley of the moon should have a rocket. It used to. That was the whole theme of the park...there was also a spaceship. Exploration as healthy choice. It was the space age, afterall. Now there are wide open expances of grassy picnic grounds. Good...More

Stumbled upon the park while walking the Chester Trail. Right by a nice stream and residential neighborhood. Great playground and picnic area. Port-o-potty and real restrooms there (not sure if they are always unlocked). Parking lot.

So the rocket from this park can now be found in mountain view which is interesting since it was supposedly removed for safety reasons.

What are the birds in Valley of the Moon Park? I was walking along the trail this morning and came to a spot that had hundreds of birds in the trees, they were flitting from one tree to another, then down to the ground, then back up to the trees. Does anyone know the name of the birds?
