Street art is splashed across the walls and the street are dotted with quaint shops and restaurants offering a uniquely authentic yet contemporary experience.

The Bible Museum

Estrella Mountain Regional Park encompasses 19,840 acres of beautiful desert and mountain scenery. Located near the union of the Gila and Agua Fria Rivers in the southwest Valley, the park includes seasonal wetland or riparian area during our winter and monsoon rains. The majority of the park remains pristine desert, very similar in appearance to the landscape seen by the first settlers and explorers of the area. #FunFact: Estrella Mountain Regional Park became the first regional park in the Maricopa County Park System in 1954.

Arizona Museum of Innovation, Science and Technology

Our focus now is to create a science museum for the residents of our area and to provide service to the more than 100 K-12 West Side Schools. Many parents say that visiting a distant science museum for a school group is not practical and is difficult to have a meaningful experience in the few hours during a visit. Bringing a Science Museum and Maker Space to the west valley is a major step in the right direction. Our goal is to provide awareness and discovery of science and innovation that kids and adults need for jobs in the 21st century workplace.
