The light rail path takes visitors to Mesa Arts Center and within walking distance to shops and restaurants along Main Street. Watch for the art installations at each platform. Six new, larger-than-life pieces have been added to Downtown Mesa’s permanent sculpture collection, which also includes a 30+ sidewalk sculpture gallery for visitors to experience. Mesa’s portion of the light rail ends at Sycamore Station (Dobson Road). Visitors that continue can travel through Tempe and into Central Phoenix. Download map HERE.
