Alvord Lake is an urban fishing lake located in Cesar Chavez Park in Laveen, Arizona, at the southwest corner of 35th Avenue and Baseline Road.[1]

Alvord Lake was part of a parcel of land willed to the city of Phoenix, Arizona by Gilbert Alvord. Alvord was the sole heir to the Edgar Apperson fortune. They made their home together in Phoenix, Arizona.[2][3]
