Hayden Butte Park in tempe

25-acre park with panoramic views 

Tempe Butte is the official name of an andesite butte of volcanic origin, located partially on Arizona State University's Tempe campus in Tempe, Arizona.

It is often referred to by locals as A Mountain, after the 60-foot-tall gold-painted letter 'A' near the top. 

Hayden Butte Preserve contains approximately 500 petroglyphs, or rock art images, that were made by the Hohokam between A.D. 750 and 1450.

The Hohokam, who were the prehistoric inhabitants of this area, built hundreds of miles of irrigation canals, cultivated corn as their main crop and lived in many settlements both large and small throughout the valley. 

Hayden Butte is one of Tempe's most popular outdoor areas and is a quick jaunt to take in a beautiful view of the city.

The butte is culturally-significant to three communities: the people of Tempe, Arizona State University students and alumni, and the Salt River Pima-Maricopa Indian Community.
