Tempe Town Lake Too Popular?
The popularity of the Tempe Town Lake and the Tempe Beach Park has become too much for some of the locals. The residents have began to complain about the crowds of tourists that have taken up their local park making it difficult for a leisurely stroll in their neighborhood park. The City of Tempe has also had some issues with scheduling since almost every weekend the park is booked with some sort of event. There was been a recent call to make the lake and the park more accessible to the local residents who paid for these recreational areas and to make it less of a tourist madhouse. | Date: April 19, 2006 | Source: Jahna Berry, "Town Lake's Popularity Is Becoming a Problem," The Arizona Republic (Phoenix), April 19, 2006.
