Cute little park area and paths next to the lake. I had read there is a splash pad for kids; however, apparently that closed down a year or so ago. There was no festivals going on when we went. You can rent bikes, paddle boards,...More

Nice park to take a stroll. I would recommend in the mornings when the temperatures reach 100s. The park is clean. There are paddle boats. The park also has festivals at times.

Thanks! We hope you had a great time. It's also really beautiful here at night when the lake reflects so many lights. Stop by again!

My Family had such a great time on the beach. From walking to seeing all the beautiful buildings in the back drop. There was some sort of festival going on which brought a very nice friendly crowd. My teens really loved taking pictures.

I have been to Tempe Beach Park for a couple music festivals and have enjoyed it. Clean, good atmosphere and generally good vibe.

Paddle boats and more great for a break from spring training. You have to look hard for the free parking. We parked in a public parking garage and had to pay.

We go here every time we're in Tempe as it is a super easy to do walk. You can go short or long and walking next to the water is relaxing. Never crowded and easy walking.

Hi Iaurie, The closest one is Best Western Inn of Tempe on 670 N Scottsdale Road, Tempe. I am sure you can find more hotels in surrounding area on search engines. Noro

I wouldn’t want to swim in that water. It’s stinky. Besides, there’s boats going around. Don’t want to be hit by one.
