TEMPE, Ariz. (November 12, 2019) – The city of Tempe recently celebrated the 20th Anniversary of the Tempe Town Lake with a weekend of festivities and celebrations. The Tempe Town Lake has become a centerpiece for the city and the region, and welcomes visitors throughout the year who enjoy the many amenities the Lake has to offer. 

“We are celebrating the lake as an entertainment and development success, but it is so much more than that,” Tempe Mayor Mark Mitchell said. “Town Lake is a place where people celebrate milestones in their lives—they get married at Tempe Center for the Arts. Athletes push themselves to the limit competing in their first triathlon. Families come together for traditions like the annual boat parade or just for Sunday evening strolls.  Town Lake has become the backdrop of meaningful memories for many people.”
