Park View Apartments
The Park View Apartments of Tempe are located approximately four miles from the southwest corner of the Arizona State University campus. The most direct route to the university involves traveling east on Baseline Road and turning north on Hardy Drive. Stay on Hardy until you reach West University Drive, and then turn east to drive straight into campus. University cuts through the center of ASU Tempe, so you can branch of onto campus streets to reach your final destination.
An alternate route is to take Kyrene Road northbound and turn on Southern Avenue for one block before turning north on South Mill Avenue. Mill runs along the western edge of campus and will give you access to the ASU Gammage for evenings of entertainment or the intramural fields and fitness complex for workouts. You can also take Mill further north to reach some of the academic buildings on the edge of campus.
These apartments are just far enough from the ASU campus that you probably don’t want to walk to work or class, but you still have a short commute time in your personal vehicle or on the Valley Metro bus. There are bus lines running along most streets in the area, but route 62 running along Hardy Drive is the fastest option for trips to the campus.
Your trip starts with a half-mile walk to the corner of Hardy and Baseline Road where you board a bus heading north on Hardy. You will end up at the southwestern corner of campus, and you can walk or bike your way to the academic buildings located in south campus. The buses allow you to take a bike along, but you must use the exterior racks.
If you want to take a bus to University Drive so that you’re closer to north campus buildings, take a northbound route 66 bus on Kyrene Road. Get off at the corner of Mill Avenue and University, and then walk or bike to your final destination. This is the preferred route if you’re going to the Wells Fargo Arena or one of the university ball fields.
From a European café to a taco shop and Chinese restaurant, the streets surrounding the Park View Apartments offer an array of dining options. You can also travel less than a mile northwest to shop at Arizona Mills Mall or visit Sea Life Arizona. The Arizona Grand Resort & Spa contains a large golf course, which is located approximately one mile to the west. There are several small parks within walking distance of the apartments, including the Benedict Sports Complex on Guadalupe Road.
