Beginning on Tues., Nov. 1, the Anthem Community Council will charge non-residents to use the SK8 & Ride Park. It will cost $3 a day or $25 for the month. Passes can be purchased thru CivicRec at Community Center.
Non-residents will be given blue tags. These cannot be used at the Community Center or at any other ACC amenities, only the SK8 & Ride Park. Residents will be allowed to continue using the facility for free, along with other Anthem amenities, by checking in.
Charging non-residents to use the park is anticipated to generate over $10,000 a year.
The park, located at 41703 N. Gavilan Peak Pkwy., has over 14,000 square feet of skating space, making it among the largest in Arizona. This skate park expansion project was approved during the Facilities Master Plan process in May 2017 and construction began in October 2021. The design by MayDall Construction and Pillar Design Studios incorporates various skill level areas for an all-wheel complex (skateboards, scooters, bikes, in-line skates, etc.). This was done to accommodate the growing volume of riders in recent years. The park opened in March of this year.
