Anthem Parkside: Paseo – Patio Homes & Walkable Streets
Anthem is the largest town in the North Phoenix Corridor, straddling I-17. While the west side of town is in Phoenix, the east side (including Paseo) is in Maricopa County. See our Anthem Overview for a comprehensive description of the town, its governance and amenities.
Community amenities are situated outside the small Paseo section and are the same as the rest of Anthem Parkside, including a water park, Olympic-size swimming pool, tennis courts, an expansive gym and fitness center with rock-climbing wall, indoor and outdoor basketball courts, several sports fields supporting community-organized soccer, flag-football and baseball leagues.
There’s a skate park, roller hockey rink, sand volleyball court, and catch-and-release fishing ponds. There are several miles of natural and paved hiking and biking trails throughout town, and dozens of small “pocket parks” with playgrounds. Also, the North Valley Regional Library is in Anthem.
The primary public high school is Boulder Creek High School. The main K-8 is Canyon Springs. For more on public, charter and private schools in and near Anthem, see our overview. See also test scores & enrollment figures compared.
