About Anthem

Anthem is a census-designated place located in Maricopa County, Arizona, within the Phoenix Metropolitan Area.  It was built at the base  of Daisy Mountain and Gavilan Peak.  Anthem has been described as one of the best places to raise a family by Parenting magazine and one of the best family friendly neighborhoods in the Phoenix area by Phoenix Magazine.

HISTORY

Anthem was developed by Del Webb in 1999 as a master-planned community in the foothills approximately 34 miles north of downtown Phoenix.   On July 31, 2012, a storm dropped 5.01 inches of rain in a 90 minute span, causing widespread flooding that damaged homes and required the rescue of nine people. A subsequent investigation into the flood concluded that the storm was a “one-in-1,000 year rain catastrophe.”

SCHOOLS, HEALTH AND TRANSPORTATION

The Deer Valley Unified School District (DVUSD) as well as several private and charter schools serve this area.. The nearest community colleges are  Glendale Community College, Paradise Valley Community College, and the closest university is Arizona State University at the West campus.

John C Lincoln Deer Valley Hospital or Arrowhead Hospital service the area for residents health.

Interstate 17 is the primary connection between Anthem and the city of Phoenix. A frontage road running along the east side of Interstate 17 and connecting Carefree Highway in North Gateway to Gavilan Peak Parkway opened in October 2009. This frontage road connects to North Valley Parkway and Norterra Parkway in North Gateway, providing access to the rest of the Phoenix metropolitan area.  Valley Metro does not provide bus service, however, the agency can provide a vehicle for vanpooling service.

PARKS AND RECREATION

Anthem is well known for the year round activities, primarily geared towards families. The community center offers youth soccer, baseball, basketball, tennis, various forms of martial arts, swimming, and other activities for all ages.  HOA dues cover a larger than Olympic size pool, a community water park with slides and various depths for all swimming levels.  There are paths that crisscross the town, bike paths that circle all major streets, and pocket parks scattered throughout the town. In addition, there is a 63-acre community park complete with an amphitheater, lots of grassy areas, volleyball, soccer, football, baseball and little league fields along with a train, pavilion, lakes and pagodas.

SHOPPING AND DINING

The community is serviced by several large chain retailers, including Fry’s Marketplace, and Walmart.  The local outlet mall,  Outlets at Anthem, includes over 60 designer brand stores. In 2015, a Safeway location was sold to Haagen’s, but shut down shortly thereafter. Now there is a large parking lot with no supermarket.
