Turf Maintenance Schedule
Part of keeping the fields and playing surfaces looking their best involves short-term closures to re-sod and repair fields from heavy use, and to aerate the soil to promote healthy turf. Some fields are also closed for overseeding in the fall. View a turf maintenance schedule for the three parks listed above.

Rules and Regulations
Tobacco use is never allowed on ACC property. Pets must be leashed at ALL times (except within the off-leash zones of the dog park, once opened). Refer to signs posted throughout the parks or the rules posted on this page under "Related Documents." Parks and amenities within them may be closed or have restricted use at times due to special events or inclement weather.

New River Kiwanis Park
A short drive from Anthem, the community of New River offers an 80-acre park with horse arena, playgrounds, ball fields, ramadas, clubhouse/meeting space and more. Anthem residents are welcome to use the New River Kiwanis Park facilities. Learn about the Kiwanis Park.
