The Clark Park Community Garden is a collaborative effort of the Clark Park Marilyn Ann Neighborhood Associations, and Tempe Community Action Agency. The garden was created in 2014 at the site of a former municipal pool. Our mission is to grow plants and community roots by providing access to healthy locally grown food to enhance our relationships in the neighborhood. The Clark Park Community Garden promotes and provides environmental sustainability and land stewardship, educational and social opportunities, and healthy supplemental food sources for its gardeners and those in need of food. Three Saturdays a month there is a CSA produce pick up for those that register, providing our neighbors with locally grown produce and supporting small farms in the area. The garden includes community growing areas and 27 raised boxes available for rent to the community. These community spaces include fruit trees, dedicated boxes for volunteers, and two native desert gardens.
Clark Park Garden hosts a community work day on the 1st and 3rd Saturday morning of each month from 8AM to 11AM. Other volunteer work events are scheduled as needed. Anyone with an interest in working at a community garden are encouraged to come and participate, at 1730 South Roosevelt, Tempe AZ, 85281/

Clark Park After Dark Event: Join us for the After Dark series Thursday nights at 6PM, that connects you to the community side of the garden. This will be a weekly gathering to discuss various aspects of the garden.
Need a Space to Garden?
Whether you are dealing with a shady backyard, a home with no place to garden or you need more room to grow, a community garden rental plot can help solve these problems. Additionally, rental plots add the value of community-building as gardeners from around the community come to one place to grow, share stories, and learn more about each other and gardening. The Clark Park Community Garden site includes:
- 27 raised beds
- access to water
- a picnic table and access to shade for rest and work space
- ample parking
- access to bathroom facilities
