Description

Kiwanis Park is a 125-acre oasis south of Tempe that provides a rare (for Arizona) lake in the Phoenix metro area.

While this manmade lake is definitely kitschy and feels extremely artificial, many local residents appreciate the break from the arid desert environment that is endemic to the area. This rare body of water provides a habit for many types of birds.

Thanks to the many birds that flock here as a result, Kiwanis Park is a popular spot for birder spotters. The trail shown here is an easy, flat path that encircles the lake.

Be sure to bring your binoculars and see how many bird species you can identify! Sources: https://www.tempe.gov/Home/Components/FacilityDirectory/FacilityDirectory/120/3542
