For 15 years, In&Out Magazine has been the definitive source of “Everything that’s going on” in and out of the community. We thank you, our readers, as well as the businesses that support the magazine through advertising, for that opportunity. But with little going on, and many businesses suspending or canceling their ads during the Covid-19 crisis, we are suspending publication of the magazine and web sites for the month of May. 

Fireside at Norterra: Top-Flight Master-Planned Community

Fireside at Norterra: Top-Flight Master-Planned Community

Fireside at Norterra offers all the amenities buyers look for in a master-planned community. Its many sections include single-family homes, condos and apartments. Fireside backs up against the Phoenix Sonoran Desert Preserve, offering miles and miles of hiking opportunities.

The community center with pool, fitness center and water park anchor a community chock full of amenities.

Community Amenities

Community amenities are first rate and beyond what’s found in nearby developments. They include:

  • Community center with fitness center, spa and steam room, and a rock wall for climbing.
  • Outdoor basketball and tennis courts.
  • Outdoor swimming pool (for laps and leisure) and a play pool (think small water park, with short slides).

Fireside has an extensive network of trails that lead into the Sonoran Desert Preserve.


Fireside is within a short drive of three major shopping centers, with big box stores, specialty shops and restaurants. The closest: Happy Valley Towne Center and the Shops at Norterra. Grocery stores? There’s a Wal-Mart roughly 10 minutes to the south and a brand new (2017) Fry’s Marketplace equidistant in the other direction. A little farther away there’s a Safeway and an Albertsons.


Fireside has its own K-8 public school and is served by Barry Goldwater High School in the DVUSD district. See more about public, charter and private schools near the community. See also test scores & enrollment figures.

Nearby Attractions

Fireside backs up against one of four regional parks in North Phoenix that offer endless opportunities for hiking, boating and other outdoor activities. Sky Harbor International Airport is a quick hop, less than 30 miles to the south.
