Our one year grandson needed to let of a bit of steam after patiently accompanying us on various errands. We took him to the Kiwanis Park. I was pleasantly surprised at how nice the park was. There's a big shaded area with a bunch of...More

It seems the only sane place to be in July in Tempe! The children have it great. They run and splash through a changing variety of water devices. Happy parents were engaged and getting wet too. It would be helpful to have more shade over...More

We went there for the tennis courts, but overall, for a city owned facility, it is very impressive. The courts are well maintained.
