Clark Park Community Garden
In 2009, the Clark Park Pool was decommissioned and deemed unsafe for use. A group of neighbors around the park came together with ideas on what to do with the space.
After a couple years of planning with the City of Tempe, Clark Park Community garden opened in 2014. Working together; Keep Tempe Beautiful, the Clark Park Community Garden volunteers and the City of Tempe are excited about the new permanent location on the North Side of the Park, which reopened early 2023.
The garden is volunteer run by a dedicated volunteer committee. We have 22, 4x8rental boxes for new gardeners. The beginnings of a Food Forest and several communal beds that support our subscription Farm Bag program that supports our efforts and local farmers while helping provide food security for our neighborhood.
Additionally, we have educational classes and volunteer opportunities on Saturday Mornings. On the 2nd Saturday of the month, KTB highlights a local expert to discuss various ways to grow in our unique desert climate.
