The Valley of the Moon holds true to the principle "Kindness to All is the Golden Key to Happiness". Since 1981, the George Phar Legler Society has operated the Valley of the Moon under the mission statement "To maintain, restore and protect the historic works and philosophies of George Phar Legler through historic and dramatic presentations to children of all ages."
Valley of the Moon is a unique area built by visionary artist George Phar Legler in the 1920s for the purpose of appealing to the magical imagination of children and as a metaphysical healing center. A National Register and Tucson Historic Landmark property wit mineralized rock cliffs, caves, pools, quirky artistic structures and garden miniatures.
George Legler explained his dedication to building this Tucson gem saying "If we can influence children to develop a friendly attitude toward everyone while they are children, they will be happier adults. That friendly attitude will unconsciously react on their subconscious minds and, in turn, will strengthen their characters and give them deeper spiritual outlooks on life, regardless of what church they may ultimately belong to."
Tucson's only fairyland is managed and operated by volunteers.
