  • Air Apparent

    850 S. McAllister Ave. Tempe, AZ 85281

    http://skyspace.asu.edu James Turrell's Air Apparent is still quiet. Though the artist continues to enjoy international recognition for his work with light, his installation at ASU's Tempe campus near the light-rail stop on Rural and Terrace remains a relatively undiscovered gem in the desert. Air Apparent is one of many Skyspaces, which Turrell has been making since the '70s. Designed with the help of local architect Will Bruder to be an immersive art experience, Air Apparent is a structure that frames the sky with programmed LED lights to optimize color perception at sunrise and sunset. If it sounds a little out there, it's because it is. Turrell's biggest project, the Roden Crater, is a series of tunnels under an extinct volcanic cinder cone in northern Arizona. The man is clearly onto something. Until the crater opens to the public, you can find us in Air Apparent, thinking about the sky. More >>

    http://www.bigsurffun.com In 1966 Phil Dexter dreamed up a machine that would bring ocean swells to the middle of the Sonoran Desert. By 1969 he was able to open Big Surf Waterpark, America's original wave pool in Tempe, Arizona. Thanks to upgrades the Big Surf Wavepool is still the third largest in the world, with an impressive 2.5 million gallon capacity and nowadays it's more than just a place to ride a wave. The waterpark is also home to more than a dozen rides for visitors of any age and offers several “beach” areas for those not interested in floating the day away. For most of the time the pools limited to boogie boarders and body surfers, but at certain days and times they let the waves roll and open the operation up for the surfers. And if you don't know how, you can also sign up for classes. More >>

    480-306-8633

    http://www.gringostarstreetbar.com Given that two major pastimes for college kids are drinking and gaming, putting a hybrid bar and arcade like Gringo-Star Street Bar within fragging distance of Arizona State University is an idea worthy of the Mother Brain herself. The Mill Avenue spot levels up the hipness factor even further by mixing vintage video games (10 arcade classics like Galaga, and Street Fighter II, plus two Nintendo 64 consoles and skeeball machines) with vibrant street art murals from Lalo Cota, JB Snyder, and Sierra Joy, as well as such street eats as Sonoran hot dogs, green chili pork tacos, and Korean spiced beef. Games are free to play every Mondays and the bar offers several drink specials, while the big DJ nights on Friday and Saturday bring out both bottle-poppers and quarter-droppers. More >>

    Kiwanis Recreation Center

    480-350-5201

    http://www.tempe.gov/index.aspx?page=774 We give extra props to this Tempe outdoor facility because of everything around it — tennis and volleyball courts and shaded picnic areas for starters. Located in the 125 acre Kiwanis Park, the rec center's other amenities include indoor wave pool, fitness center, gymnasium, corporate ramada area and classrooms. Since almost all outdoor activities must be done at night during the Arizona summer -- if you want to avoid being miserable -- it's a good thing the 15 tennis courts at Kiwanis Park in Tempe have lights, which stay on until 10 p.m. Of course, even summer nights here are hot, so you'll probably still work up a sweat. That's no problem if you're playing at Kiwanis, because the tennis courts are located right next to the community pool. More >>

    http://www.tempe.gov/index This 88,000 square foot performing and visual arts center serves the cultural community of Tempe with multiple performance and outdoor venues. Located on the banks of the Tempe Town Lake, the facility opened in September 2007 and cost some 65 million dollars to construct. The largest theater space seats 600 people in an impressive wood-clad auditorium while the smaller Studio Theater accommodates 200 people in a black box theater space. The center's gallery can open into the lobby allowing for a seamless flow from one space to the next. There's also a lake side multipurpose room, an outdoor amphitheater and two entrances to the center. The Tempe Center for the Arts is home to a number of performance groups based in Tempe including Childsplay, ConderDance, Tempe Symphony Orchestra, Arizona Wind Symphony and Desert Dance Theater. The design also includes several public art pieces including “Fireplace– trueNorth” by Mayme Kratz and Mark Ryan as well as “Aurora” by Brower Hatcher. More >>

  • Tempe Beach Park

    Tempe Beach Park

    54 W. Rio Salado Parkway Tempe, AZ 85281
    480-350-8625

    http://www.tempe.gov/lake/ Whether you’re looking for the best place to ride your bike, hike a trail, or just a cool place to plop down for a family picnic, this pleasantly landscaped park, originally built in 1931 and completely renovated in 1999 as part of the construction of the city’s Town Lake project, has what you want. With views of the Tempe skyline as a backdrop, Tempe Beach Park looks and feels like a whole lot more than just a widened stretch of the Salt River—which is pretty much what it is. The lake is more than just pretty; it's five miles of paths for bicycling, jogging or in-line skating circling Town Lake provide a great place to get some good exercise with a rented paddle boat or a pair of rented skates, both available there. Tempe city events like the Tour de Fat, New Year's Eve Fete, and Oktoberfest are all the more festive here, thanks to wide expanses of green grass and a new pedestrian bridge linking the “beach” to the park itself.

    480-350-8625

    http://www.tempe.gov/lake/ This gateway to Tempe is practically a town unto itself. It’s home to an historic baseball field that plays host to softball games and carnival rides, as well as the Splash Playground, a one-acre water park that actually collects the water your kids are playing in, then filters, cleans, and re-circulates it in a state-of-the-art system. An amphitheater accommodates 5,000 people for concerts and outdoor trade shows. Completed in 1999, Tempe Town Lake is nearly two miles long and surrounded by a park and business and residential highrises that look out over the fun of fishing (the lake is stocked with rainbow trout and largemouth bass from November through February), boating, and even an excursion called the Rio Salado Cruise. Annual events at the lake include the Tostitos Fiesta Bowl New Year's Eve Block Party, the Tempe Music Festival, the APS Fantasy of Lights, and a Fourth of July fireworks that’s the biggest and brightest in the valley.
