Though primarily residential, the proximity to educational institutions makes it a prime spot for families with children and college students. The neighborhood began taking form in the late 1960s as industry in the area grew, and the University began to expand enrollment.

Restaurants

Meyer Park is a residential neighborhood sandwiched between two commercial complexes to the north and south. The north end of Meyer Park has a variety of ethnic food restaurants, headlined by SakeBomber Sushi & Grill, which also acts as the lone nightlife option located in the quaint neighborhood.

In the same plaza resides Ted's Hot Dogs; one of the most famous restaurants in the area for meat lovers. Ted's is an institution in the Phoenix Metro Area, which prompts patrons to drive from all over the valley just to taste the charcoal-flavored dogs and burgers.

The south end of Meyer Park has traditional fast-food chains like McDonald's and Taco Bell, as well as established national sit-down staples like Joe's Crab Shack and Outback Steakhouse. There are a few breakfast options in the Meyer Park area, but Back East Bagels is the crown jewel. The long lines on weekends are normal and totally worth it.

While the nightlife options in Meyer Park are not abundant, there are plenty of options in nearby neighborhoods. For a slightly older and more professional crowd, head east, then take the 101 North for 15 minutes to Old Town Scottsdale. Dozens of bars, clubs, and lounges line the streets for any type of evening you might fancy. For a younger crowd a little closer to home, head west for five minutes, and you will find yourself in the thick of Mill Avenue, the tree-lined main drag of bars, clubs, and restaurants adjacent to ASU.

History

Meyer Park came to be as a result of an expanding Phoenix Metropolitan Area as large companies like Intel and Honeywell and financial institutions like American Express and Chase Bank began popping up in the valley. These new companies, along with the rapid growth from nearby ASU, created a demand for modestly situated homes close to the University, yet still close enough to downtown Phoenix.

In the late 1960’s construction began on the Meyer Park neighborhood and today it sits as a prime example of a community built on the idea that a good location, close proximity to school facilities and nearby restaurants make for a welcoming living environment.

Art lovers visit ASU for their contemporary art museum or head to the Phoenix Art Museum just a few miles away. Kids love the Children's Museum, in Phoenix, where they can create art work, attend a birthday party or participate in play and learn activities.

Transportation

Cycling and walking are easy, safe ways to get around Meyer Park as there are no major roads that cut through. That said, once you leave the confines of Meyer Park, large arterial roads create quick and convenient thoroughfares for driving, which is the preferred mode of travel for residents. If you are looking to minimize car use, bus routes along Broadway to the north, McClintock to the east and Southern to the south provide a convenient and reliable public transportation option.

Just north of Meyer Park is the Valley Metro Light Rail. The McClontock and Apache stop has an available park and ride structure, but you could certainly walk there as well. The light rail connects Meyer Park to Mesa (east) as well as the Sky Harbor Airport and downtown Phoenix sports facilities (west).

The City of Tempe’s Orbit bus system provides a free shuttle service and runs right through the heart of Meyer Park. Look for the blue Orbit: Mars shuttles along Dorsey Lane. You can flag down the shuttle like a taxi no matter where you are on its route, and you will be whisked away, free of charge.

Cost

The modest homes and apartments in Meyer Park register right on the average in Tempe. Expect to pay an average of $776 for a one-bedroom apartment and $3.50 for a bottle of domestic brew. Typically you’ll see gas prices approximately 15 percent lower than the national average. The orbit shuttle provides free transportation to some key Tempe locales and a one-way bus fare is $2. The Valley Metro Light Rail just north of the neighborhood will also set you back $2 one-way.

Shopping

Meyer Park itself has limited shopping variety, but has every option you could want within its reach. From healthy foods to sinful treats and from modest work garb to party dresses, the central location makes shopping quick, easy and accessible.

On the south end of Meyer Park off of Southern Ave, Sprouts Farmers Market provides residents a convenient and high-quality supermarket option. Fresh produce with a variety of organic options at reasonable prices make it the choice destination for grocery shoppers from the surrounding area. Supplies for your office or home can be picked up at Staples and Smart & Final respectively.

You don’t have to go very far for more specialized purchases. Tempe Marketplace is just up McClintock Dr. and houses popular stores like Target and Best Buy, as well as unique establishments like Divaz Boutique where you can drape yourself in affordable and fashionably sleek attire for a night out on the town.

Head west to Mill Avenue to get your sweet tooth fix at Candy Addict. As the name suggests, sugar treats reign supreme in this establishment. From Cocopotamus Truffles to the more traditional multicolored pinwheel lollipops, it’s hard not to get an immediate sugar rush when you walk through the doors.

Parks

In the middle of Meyer Park, you’ll find a park, aptly named Meyer Park. The park serves as the central congregation point of the neighborhood with easy access regardless of where in the community you reside. The quaint park has all the must-haves. The basketball and sand volleyball courts have flood lights in the event you are dying to get that extra game in on those warm summer nights.

Other parks in the area are much larger than Meyer Park and therefore tend to be much more crowded. Tempe Beach Park, 3.5 miles northwest, is a spacious 25-acres with amenities like a "splash playground." Tempe Beach Park holds many festivals throughout the year like Tour de Fat, Oktoberfest, Tempe Music Festival and the Annual Salsa Festival. The smaller size and secluded location of Meyer Park creates a feeling like it belongs to the residents who live around it.
