Maricopa County Parks and Recreation


​​The Maricopa County Parks offer visitors the opportunity for star gazing throughout our park system. We even provide the telescope. You will view and learn about the moon, the planets, deep space objects like star clusters, nebulae and galaxies. Bring your own chairs and snacks. The whole family will enjoy the program. No pets allowed. These programs are conducted by Tony La Conte of Stargazing For Everyone. The cost for the program is included in the day-use park entry fee.

For more information on specific dates, times, and parks offering these programs, visit our calendar and Stargazing for Everyone's Event Page.
