Tempe is home to more than 50 neighborhood and community parks, including Kiwanis Park, Tempe Beach parks and Tempe Sports Complex.  Strategically placed throughout the city so most residents are within one half mile, Tempe parks serve as the community's backyard, providing residents and neighbors a venue to relax, learn and connect with one another and the environment.
