The park was originally developed by the Jaycees of Tempe in 1962. Eventually, the park was turned over to the City of Tempe.Â
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.Â
Park size is 7 acres.
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.
Small but nice park. Splash pads Are awesome for the kids and it's free. The only thing is that was some homeless people hanging out around the play area for the children.

The dog part was small and not impressive. It had a big field for playing baseball, nice volleyball area.
Dozens of homeless reside in the park. Homeless know to be there for charity persons that show up with food and other items they provide for them.
