Palm Walk is a popular corridor among students, faculty, staff and university visitors alike. Palm Walk is the most photographed site on the Tempe campus, and extends from the University Bridge on the north to the Sun Devil Fitness Complex on the south.
The Palm Walk three-phase rehabilitation project began in summer 2016 and is slated to be complete in 2018. The original fan palms, with a history dating to 1917, were nearing the end of their life cycle. The new date palms along the path provide more shade for pedestrians and fruit for the university’s annual date harvest.
