Asante Park-Surprise

Make sure you also check out the Asante Library that is new as of 2020!

Asante is happily booming and building again! We are happy to see that new neighbors and people will be around this park!IMG_4209

There are a lot of trees and shade, and Ramadas and benches near the playgrounds.


This is the “Toddler playscape” for agres 2-5. There sand all around it so bring some buckets to play! And, a lot of green space for kids to run, so you can bring a ball too


Swings for the younger crew, no “big kid ” swings however. Behind the swings is where there should be houses, but you can tell there is not.

This is the tot playground still, from the front view. It is complete with two slides, and two “rock climbing” pieces.

This is the “big kids playground”. There is just so much to do at this one, I can’t even list it all. There are lots of things to climb, hang off of, slide down, jump around and have fun on. And, it’s shaded! If you pass by the big kids playground there is a full basketball court, and more greenspace.


There is also a few softball/baseball fields and soccer fields. Behind this baseball field is a bathroom, but I am unsure if it is open any other time than when there is a game going on.

IMG_4220The bathrooms have been reopened and look great! (Update October 2015!)

IMG_4221There is also a Veteran’s Memorial at Asante Park as well.

    Any changes since this article was written? Don’t know how far it is from Kohls, grocery stores, etc. Looks like a beautiful area.

      Hi Lynn
      They have started doing some new homes, but no new grocery stores or any other shopping. It’s about 10-15 minutes from shopping on Grand Avenue!

    What other stuff do they do at the park? We are looking into moving in. Anything on the school when it will reopen? It looks so cute. Sad they closed it down and it’s just sitting.

      Hi Sherry
      The City of Surprise does have some activities at the park and people can rent it out. Are you thinking of moving into Asante? The school that was over there is now Sundown Alternative Education Center, and it doesn’t look like it will reopen as a Desert Moon School soon.Right now people living in Asante that have k-8 kids are zoned to Kingswood Elementary. Lennar is building in Asante again, and they have some really cool configurations for the homes.

      I’d love to help you if you are looking for a home as I am a Real Estate agent as well. You can check out my real estate site at

    My wife and I are very interested in the Asante community. We have gone up to the Lennar build site and spoke with the director over there who mentioned some plans for the area. He mentioned there is a plan to put a mall with shops, grocery stores and restaurants up there. He also mentioned connecting Happy Valley RD all the way to Grand Avenue. Is this still the plan? If so, how long before we can expect anything like that in the area?

    • Vicki on July 30, 2016 at 6:59 pm

      Hi Ryan
      Thanks for reaching out and asking these questions.
      Asante started out as a huge planned development before the crash, and the goal was to make housing and a shopping center for over 10,000 homes that were high end. Of course, the market stalled and building stopped for quite a long time. Asante just started getting up and running after Lennar was going head to head about the types of homes and the price ranges they were going to offer them at. The Planned development was for homes 400,000 and above at first, and they have since come down in the price. Desert Oasis, the other Planned development up in the Northwest part of Surprise has been growing faster. There are also some talks about KB Homes getting zoning set for another development as well.

      The original plan was to have all of the shopping and restaurants, but because of the volatility of the market, I can’t tell you exactly when that will happen. Surprise Council did have questions for some of the home builders regarding water rights, sustainability and usage, so that of course will be a question for any developer going in to make commercial areas. The approximate number of homes that can be built around the area in planned development is about 40,000 and right now there is only about 2,000.

      As for shopping malls (like indoor malls), the last indoor mall that was built in the US was in 2006, and since that time, many indoor malls have been transformed into residential living, schools and other commercial endeavors. I highly doubt you will see an indoor shopping mall on the west side at any time. As for the extension to Happy Valley Rd, that also has been talked about for a long time, but I haven’t heard of any plans yet to do that.

      I am also a real estate agent and I represent clients for new builds at no cost to you. The builders will not charge you any more for having representation. If you aren’t already working with a Realtor®, I’d love to talk with you about what I can do for you. I stay with my clients throughout the whole process of building-the contract, title and lender communication and walk throughs and I go to the closing table with you as well. If you have any further questions, you can contact me at or ( is my real estate site). I look forward to talking with you soon!

    Lennar has sold off some of the land to courtland homes, we just moved into our new home 🏡 out there and we can walk to this beautiful park.

    • Vicki on November 1, 2017 at 5:30 pm

      That’s so awesome Susie. I haven’t gone to Asante in a bit, but have noticed the development from 60. I’m glad to see that the park will be used by some neighbors and the area lively again!

  9. Yazmin on March 24, 2018 at 7:32 pm

    I would love to move in to this community, we wwre just at the pulte homes in desert oasis but asante would be a better fit since it is closer to grand ave.
