Where can I park at Tempe Town Lake? Where can I rent a boat? What is the name of that sculpture I’m looking at? The City of Tempe has new interactive maps that answer all these questions and more.

These maps work best using Firefox or Chrome browsers.

Tempe Town Lake Map
The new Tempe Town Lake map shows everything from the location of drinking fountains and public bathrooms to parking lots and bike paths. Visit or go to the map directly at  

More than 2.4 million people visit Tempe Town Lake annually. This map provides the most detailed information available. The mobile version allows people to swipe for several specialized maps that focus on details, such as getting to the lake or developments, while tapping brings up photos and descriptions of everything featured.

Public Art Walking Tours
A new virtual art gallery gives visitors the ability to learn and explore the city’s mosaics, gardens and medians as they navigate the walkways of downtown Tempe, neighborhoods and Tempe Town Lake. 

Scroll across the map and select pieces. When a particular project is selected, a pop-up with an informative background appears. The numbered points provide people a way to see all the art within the area. The desktop version allows you to see a mapped catalog of all the art in the city separated by category. 

Here are the links to downtown and Tempe Town Lake public art maps and the overall GIS map.
