Tempe Beach Park

Map & Directions 54 W. Rio Salado Parkway
Tempe, AZ 85281


Phoenix New Times' Description

Whether you’re looking for the best place to ride your bike, hike a trail, or just a cool place to plop down for a family picnic, this pleasantly landscaped park, originally built in 1931 and completely renovated in 1999 as part of the construction of the city’s Town Lake project, has what you want. With views of the Tempe skyline as a backdrop, Tempe Beach Park looks and feels like a whole lot more than just a widened stretch of the Salt River—which is pretty much what it is. The lake is more than just pretty; it's five miles of paths for bicycling, jogging or in-line skating circling Town Lake provide a great place to get some good exercise with a rented paddle boat or a pair of rented skates, both available there. Tempe city events like the Tour de Fat, New Year's Eve Fete, and Oktoberfest are all the more festive here, thanks to wide expanses of green grass and a new pedestrian bridge linking the “beach” to the park itself.

    Awesome place to catch a great show, or relax on the weekends! Paddle Boats make for a fun afternoon activity!

    This is a great place to take the kids, they have a splash waster park and playground which is free. Call before heading down to make sure the splash park is open, because sometimes it is closed when I have gone. They have picnic tables, grass, plenty of restrooms and it's just a nice place to spend your afternoon. It's very family oriented

    Love coming to the TBP. Its an all day adventure for my son who loves the kids and the water attractions here. I love knowing that we can get a healthy lunch within walking distance. Pull out a book, sit on the park bench and let the kids do their thing. Inexpensive,easy and fun!
