Optimist Park

Optimist Park is located in South Tempe and is surrounded by the community known as the Optimist Park Neighborhood.

The rough boundaries of the Optimist Park neighborhood would be from Baseline Road on the North side to Guadalupe Road to the South and from McClintock Drive on the West to Price Road to the East.

Great South Tempe Location!

Speaking of location, Optimist Park has it. The proximity to two major freeways, some great local businesses and many nearby conveniences help make this relatively affordable Tempe location a great value for it’s residents.

Other things to consider when looking at this area are jobs. The Discovery Business Park and the ASU Research Park are close by and are kind of a gateway to the Price Road Corridor where even more jobs and opportunities exist.

Within the neighborhood, the park itself, along with schools, places of worship, walking / biking trails, and a mix of residential homes help bring a good sense of community to the area.

Next to the park is well respected Fuller Elementary School which is part of the Tempe Elementary School District boundary. The middle school boundary for neighborhod residents is Fees Middle School and the High School listed for the neighborhood is Marcos De Niza which is an open enrollment school.

If you are not yet familiar with Tempe neighborhoods, the maps below will give you a better idea of the location and of some of the community restaurants, shops, etc. Of course, the Optimist Park Neighborhood is located just North of another area we like a lot which is the popular Camelot Corner area of Tempe.
