Jaycee Park

5th Street and Hardy Drive

The park was originally developed by the Jaycees of Tempe in 1962. Eventually, the park was turned over to the City of Tempe. 

It is adjacent to the Westside Multigenerational Center which is home to the Ron Pies Gymnasium. Ron Pies retired from the City of Tempe, after 30 years of services, on October 12, 1998. 

Park size is 7 acres.

Calm dog park. No one is there whenever I go, with few exceptions. Could use more shade since there's no grass. It's well-shaded in the morning due to trees on one side. There's some cement curbing for seemingly no reason and can burn dogs' feet in the summertime. The drinking fountain for dogs is surrounded by cement and in the sun as well. It's not a bad park though, just some hasty design.

Fun little park to come and bring your kids and pets. There's a dog park and a water play area along with a playground, volleyball, basketball and baseball court. Its located in Tempe not to far from Mill Ave.

Small park, but nice. There are rest rooms available, but they need maintenance. My kids liked this place. It has big parking space. I could give it five stars if they could take care with cleaning, maintenance issue. In addition this park looks uncomfortable because many homeless people live there and some spots already being a home for them. I hope someone can help them and find better place for them to live.

I loved Jaycee Park because there are basketball courts and a big field and some parks don't have those things.

It is a smaller park, but with a baseball diamond, basketball courts, a dog/off-leash area, and a nice playground - it is definitely a gem. The only issue would be it's size... Not a lot of space if you're looking to go for a walk/jog/run.
