A desert oasis in the middle of the Phoenix Metropolitan area, Tempe Town Lake offers a variety of exciting events and activities to enjoy year round. Tempe Town Lake, located adjacent to Downtown Tempe, provides a recreational haven for kayaking, sailing, rowing, jogging, fishing or picnicking.
The City of Tempe allows the public to use their own watercraft such as a kayak or stand-up paddleboard on Tempe Town Lake. However, the City of Tempe requires a permit for each privately owned watercraft. Apply for a permit online to enjoy the lake with your own equipment. Happy boating!
