The Barrio Blue Moon neighborhood is named after a former dance hall called “Blue Moon Ballroom” which opened back in 1920. The ballroom was very popular in those days when entertainers Billy Eckstien, Paul Whitman, and Tommy Dorsey, kept residents dancing through the night. The dance hall unfortunately burned down on March 16, 1947. Residents back then owned a few farms with horses, goats, and chicken. A few homes from the 1940s can still be seen in the Barrio Blue Moon neighborhood today, but most of them have been demolished in the past fifteen years.

Today, the Barrio Blue Moon Neighborhood has undergone significant improvements. A playground has been installed in the neighborhood park, sidewalks and traffic mitigation devices have been built, and several dusk-to-dawn lights have been placed in otherwise, dark alleyways.

University of Arizona College students may enjoy off campus housing at College Place Tucson, just off North Oracle Road.

A one acre neighborhood park called Francisco Elias Esquer Park offers Barrio Blue Moon residents a playground for children, picnic sites, barbecue grills, an exercise court and a basket ball court.

According to Walk Score, a website that ranks walkable neighborhoods across the states, the Barrio Blue Moon neighborhood obtained an average walk score of 73. This makes this neighborhood a very walk- friendly one.
