“Public splash park near Mill Avenue/Tempe Town Lake”
Reviewed 30 July 2013

Little kids love this and the adults watching them. Fun place to cool off in the summer. Covered picnic table nearby and public restrooms. Free.

“No place to splash!”
Reviewed 3 April 2013 via mobile

Here on Spring Break. It is around 80 degrees outside yet this place is closed until the end of May! The "lake" you can't even swim in, every single pool in the entire area I've looked at is closed until summer, as if NOBODY wants to swim outside of 3 months a year?!?!? About to resort to going to my sisters and spraying the kids with a hose!

“Waterlicious”
Reviewed 26 July 2012

Took the 7 year old with her friend and I think I had just as much fun. The allow you to bring in water which was great. After 4 hours we were through and exhausted but can't wait to go back.

“Tempe Town Lake Area”
Reviewed 5 July 2011

We stopped at Tempe Town Lake Splash Park after visiting Hole in the Rock (its about 3 miles away). The kids loved it. Very clean, plenty of water, bathrooms, vending machines, covered picnic tables. We are from Chicago and visit the Phoenix area every summer, but hadn't been to Tempe in about 10 years. What a great improvement! We were there in June and its really hot, but I'm sure this area is really nice in the fall/Spring. They have boat rides on the river, and fishing. Great big open area. Tons of stores and restaurants in the Mill Avenue District near ASU.
