Tempe Town Lake Turns 20!

Event Summary

The marvel that is Tempe Town Lake is celebrating its 20th birthday this year and the City of Tempe is celebrating in a special way!

Join in on the celebration as we reminisce the past 20 years, explore where we are now, and look to the next 20. And of course, the City of Tempe has got a pretty big birthday party planned. 

The Tempe City Council-approved Rio Salado and Beach Park Master Plan provides a blueprint for the future of this Tempe treasure. This November, we’re bringing that vision to life in a big way. Six zones. Dozens of free activities. Water taxis on the lake. And the entire community is invited.
