Green Leaf Vista Apartments
If you drive east from the Arizona State University Tempe campus on East University Drive, you will reach the Green Leaf Vista Apartments in approximately nine miles. Located directly on University, these apartments are within a 30-minute drive of most campus locations. That includes the entertainment venues like the Wells Fargo Arena and the Sun Devils Stadium.
If you want to reach the northern region of campus or want to visit the parks located on the shores of Tempe Town Lake, take University to Gilbert Road, and then merge onto the 202 loop going west. Exit at Scottsdale Road, which runs north and south through the northernmost region of campus. You can also take this road to reach the Phoenix Zoo and many outdoor recreational areas north of campus.
It will take at least an hour to reach the ASU campus by bus and even longer to walk, so you may want to rely on personal transportation. If you do need to take public transportation, walk about four minutes to the corner of University Drive and Creston. Catch a route 30 bus headed toward South Mountain CC, and then exit at the corner of University and Mill Avenue. From this location, you can reach all areas of campus on foot or bike.
You can also get to campus by taking the Valley Metro light rail. Walk approximately half a mile to the corner of Main Street and Val Vista Drive, and then board a route 40 bus headed along Main Street West toward Apache Boulevard. Get off at the Main Street/Center Street bus stop and board a train at the light rail station. A train headed for 19th Avenue will take you to the corner of Veterans Way and College Avenue in approximately 20 minutes. This is on the western edge of campus, but you can also continue on the train to visit destinations northwest of ASU.
The Green Leaf Vista apartment complex is located 12 miles west of the Usery Mountain Regional Park, which offers multiple trails for walking or jogging, picnic areas, camping lots and wind caves. The Red Mountain District Park and Spook Hill District Park are within seven miles of the apartments, and there are two large golf courses less than six miles to the south. If you enjoy the nightlife, you will find some of Mesa’s best bars and restaurants in the immediate area.
