The Lakes in Tempe Waterfront Community

Arizona’s First Man Made Waterfront Community

 Welcome to Arizona’s first man made lake community which offers a combination of desireable waterfront single family, patio homes, and condo’s for total of over 200 waterfront properties.  The majority of the homes were built between 1972 and 1977 providing very mature and lush green landscaping throughout this Tempe Az lakefront community. The proximity of this Tempe lake community to the US60 and downtown Phoenix is a significant advantage when considering commute times.

The Lakes Community Facilities, Community Pool and Spa

When someone buys a home in The Lakes, they not only acquire a residence for their family, but they also become part of a bigger family and community at The Lakes.  Residents enjoy and have access to the The Beach and Tennis Club.  Community manager Christine Baldanza described the community as extremely close knit and the best lake community in the valley.  Residents enjoy a community pool and spa, tennis courts, basketball and sand volleyball court. The club facilities are open to residents for parties, receptions and host many of the community sponsored activities such as water aerobics, boxercise, Yoga classes, and The Lakes Women’s Club.  More information can be gathered at The Lakes Community website. The Lakes also enjoys close proximity to the 2 acre Gaicki Park east of McClintock.
