Easy access plenty of parking. Waterfront has nice access for running or walking. There is a boat dock if you want to bring your boat.

There were people enjoying all types of activities - my family and I decided to take a full circuit around the lake with a late evening stroll. There are very easily traveled walking paths and foot bridges for walking, but also plenty of room for rollerblading, skateboarding, biking, etc. Looking back at my phone the circuit we took around the lake was 1.6 miles - very easy to do on a comfortable winter evening of 70 degrees.

My family visited the Tempe Beach Park on a Thursday afternoon. We parked in the paid parking lot ($2/hr) and walked East down the river walk. Since it was the week of Christmas there wasn't a lot of people at the park or riverwalk. Plenty of Bird Scooters available to rent and ride. Paddle boats, donut boats, etc were available for rent, but they were a bit expensive. We didnt find much to do here, so we walked into downtown Tempe to check out the shops and eateries. Definitely a nice place to enjoy the sunshine.

Visited here in late September in the morning and was still too hot to enjoy. Not terribly exciting to walk around a man made lake but I guess in the desert - it is a change of scenery.
Would not visit again.

For some reason I really love biking in city parks. Maybe it is the contrast of seeing nature in the midst of buildings and so much development. It looks like an impressive amount of work was done here to create a lake in the first place and to create the park space and paths on both sides.

We rented bikes at The Bicycle Cellar and biked primarily along the Lake. It was pleasant enough. There were others jogging, biking, and fishing on the weekday morning we were there, but with all the space and so much construction still going on around, it felt somewhat artificial. Maybe I'm being a bit unfair in comparing it to biking in Central Park or along the Schuylkill River in Philly, but it just wasn't the same.

Get o the water and see the lake from another perspective. In all the years I have lived here I have only paddle boarded the water to the east side. I finally got to experience the West sideof the town lake on "Daffy" Duck the peddal boat. We did 1 hour for $40. It was a kot of fun We got lucky wiht the weather and the time we hit the water was perfect (5 pm) tempe Town Lake has so much to offer. Wide cement walkways perfect for runners, walkers even Tik Tok dance teams. lots of action going on here. The bathrooms are kinds sketchy tho. Highly recommend the park for a variety of moments, dates, and events. Definetly do the boats or Paddleboards. The variety of scenery and vintages of the bridges is a very cool thing for architecture buffs and photographers

We rented paddle boats from Boat Rentals of American and it was great fun! $35/hour was reasonable and fit four people! They do have some fun looking donut boats that are motorized but they were sold out for the day. Look to make a reservation online they said!

I was a little disappointed that this park was labeled a "beach". It really wasn't a beach. On the plus side, It had lots to see and do in regards to boats, bikes and scooters.
