For many, it is hard to believe Tempe Town Lake is ten years old. For others, it feels like it has been here “forever.” The lake is a big part of Tempe and is a major draw for residents and tourists alike.
According to Kris Baxter at the City of Tempe:
“We gave away thousands of pieces of gourmet cake, had 17 bands play for the audience, had lots of kids make arts and crafts and play games, finishing it all off with happy birthday to Town Lake, a boat parade and fireworks!”
So.. Happy birthday to Tempe Town Lake!

Remember, Rail Life has a Phoenix Light Rail Group on Flickr. Basically, we want to share some of our pictures from the community and allow people to add their pics (or videos), as well. These can be light rail related, but we also want pics of your favorite spot, restaurant, sports team, community, event etc.
