The Tempe Sports Complex will be rededicated Monday in the name of former Councilman Ben Arredondo. A ceremony will include Arredondo, U.S. Rep. Harry Mitchell, D-Ariz., and former Mayor Neil Giuliano.
Arredondo was on Tempe’s Council for 16 years and is a former high school teacher, coach and member of the Tempe Elementary School District governing board. He helped create the annual Tempe Tardeada event and worked on a Tempe History Museum exhibit that features memories of Hispanic community members.
The 60-acre sports complex was built in 2005 at Warner Road and Hardy Drive and includes baseball and soccer fields, a dog park and a skate park. The dedication will take place from 5 p.m. to 6 p.m. at the park, near the stone sign facing Hardy Drive. It will be known as the P. Ben Arredondo Tempe Sports Complex.
