Tempe Community Fishing
“If people can’t get to the fish, we’ll bring the fish to the people.”
Evelyn Hallman Pond

Swimming, wading glass containers and littering are prohibited. A permit is required to drink beer in the park. All other alcoholic beverages prohibited. Boating not allowed. Other rules posted.
