Have you heard? Anthem Community Council is currently in the process of constructing a much awaited and much debated new park. Are you ready for this? If you want to know more about the new park and what it means for you and your canine buddies, stay tuned, I have loads of great information for you!
Hey everyone, welcome back! I’m Carolynn, with the Wise Move AZ Team at RealtyONE Group. If you want to stay up to date on all things Anthem and Real Estate then you need to subscribe to our YouTube Channel. Pro Tip: You’re also going to want to hit that little bell icon while you’re there, so that you’re the first to know when our new videos are posted every single Thursday!
As your Anthem, Arizona REALTORS® and as Anthem homeowners, we love to keep up to date on all things Anthem and share them with you! The new Anthem Community Council Dog Park is a big deal and we are super excited about it!
If you have been following along with the news, you know that ground-breaking for the Dog Park took place on April 22 this year (2019). Since then, it has been a hotbed of activity with no time wasted getting the park ready. They have already completed:
- Tree salvage (they saved a bunch of beautiful trees!)
- site cleaning
- earth work
- rough grading
- fencing and curbing
Come take a stroll with me down Meridian Drive, I want to show you what you can see from a place of safety (watch the full video here). We definitely encourage you to check it out for yourself and to do so on a regular basis, but we would be remiss if we didn’t remind you that, right now, the Dog Park is a construction zone, and, like any construction zone, it is dangerous. Even if you see an opportunity to enter the Dog Park, do not be tempted to go inside and walk around. Be smart and stay safe!
What will the Dog Park Include?
The Dog Park is really starting to take shape! We can see some of the salvaged trees, fences demarcating the off-leash areas, the access area and the parking lot. It is hard to see from our video, so we have provided a links to the Anthem Community Council Dog Park Site Plan where you can see:
- Four off-leash areas, each of which includes:
- a vestibule
- a dog drinking fountain
- a dog waste station
- two shade canopies
- two six foot benches
- a table; and
- a trash receptacle
- A large parking lot; and
- A controlled access entry gate
To make things easier for you, Anthem Community Council has prepared some draft documents (click each line item to view):
- Dog Park Membership Checklist
- Dog Park Membership Application
- Dog Park Membership Guidelines
- Dog Park 101 and FAQ
Just to emphasize how truly blessed we are here in Anthem, the view from the dog park is going to be absolutely gorgeous! We are confident that Anthem’s state of the art dog park is also poised to be one of the most beautiful on this planet!
Access to the Dog Park will be restricted to members and is fee based, the fee is expected to be $50 per year and will include access for two dogs.
HOT TIP: There will be a promotional period announced for members who register early. During the promotional period fees will be reduced to $30 for the first year. Your promotional membership will also include access for two dogs! Watch for the announcement and register early!
So there you have it. We hope you are as excited about the dog park as we are, and we look forward to seeing you there later this year!
