Creamery Park is one of the few parks in Tempe that was named in honor of a significant historical element in the community rather than for a significant citizen or service club. The park is one of the smallest parks in Tempe at just under 3 acres. Built in 1999, the park resulted from an agreement with the developer of the residential complex to the north and the city to utilize the retention requirements for the development for a public park. The neighborhood between Rural Road and McClintock, Apache to University was one of the few residential areas of Tempe not served by a public park.Â
Nice little park on 8th street! Has a bball hoop!
It's a small park with a reasonable sized dog run and sand 'pit' / playground. Generally well maintained, the only major downside is through some parts of the grass there are at times the weeds that leave those tiny little thorny balls that will get stuck to socks, clothes, pets, etc. The dog park provides free bags to clean up after pets, and for the most part people use them (some people are special snowflake exceptions to common courtesy as expected anywhere, of course). A dog or a few did dig into the ground in the dog park and break one of the sprinkler heads, so there is a mud spot there, as well as by the drinking fountain for dogs. Also has a half basketball court and Ramada. Standard park stuff.
Small playground and dog park. Large open area to run, play ball.
Tempe does the upkeep. Grass is cut and dog poo picked up. It's a small dog park, but it's close and we love it.
Smaller however nice and quiet. Big enough to throw a ball and for the dogs to burn some energy. Definitely a place to go to if you live close to it.
