Birchett Park, a three-acre park situated at the northeast intersection of 13th Street and Mill Avenue is the southern gateway to downtown Tempe and directly opposite Gammage Auditorium. Draft park designs were created using the following objectives as a guide:
- Establishing a monument gateway feature
- Creating programmable space
- Constructing formalized pedestrian access
This project is in the design phase and no funds are allocated for construction at this time. Once the park plan is finalized, funding options and an overall construction timeline will be discussed.
