Catch-and-Release Fishing Pond
Anthem’s four-acre catch-and-release fishing lake is stocked with Red Ear Sunfish, Black Crappies, Blue Gills, Channel Catfish, and Large Mouth Bass. Residents may fish in the lake with barbless hooks only.
Daisy Mountain Railroad
The Daisy Mountain Railroad is a 24-inch gauge railroad located in the ACC Community Park. Featured during the ride is a trestle across a small lake, a tunnel through a faux rock outcropping, lush green landscaping, several sparkling water falls, and an eye-catching playground for young children.
The motive power on the line is provided by a steam-outline engine built by Jerry Shipman of J&E Enterprises in Chandler, Arizona. The engineer sits in the locomotive cab as the motor, which is actually in the tender, pushes the locomotive along the track. Three comfortable and well-built coaches and a caboose fill out the rolling stock roster. The leisurely ride lasts about ten minutes.
