Here\'s why residents love Province, a 55+ community in Maricopa County.

There are many reasons why residents love Province, a gated community for 55+ active adults in Central Arizona. Province has 2,217 attached and single-family homes and a wide range of model sizes available. Here’s what else the community has to over.

1. Prime Location Near Phoenix

Downtown Phoenix is only a 40-minute drive north of Province.

Province is in Maricopa County, which is the largest county in Arizona (and the fourth-largest in the United States). The county seat is in Phoenix, but Province is a 10-minute drive from the center of the city of Maricopa, which has about 50,000 people. Maricopa provides all the facilities you’d expect of a city that size, with restaurants, a movie theater, and superstores like Fry’s and Walmart.

For those wanting the facilities of a large city, Downtown Phoenix is only a 40-minute drive north of Province. Residents wanting to travel can be at Phoenix’s Sky Harbor International Airport, which is on the south side of the city, in just 35 minutes.

2. Wide-Open Spaces

Maricopa is surrounded by Arizona’s wide-open desert and mountains. The great outdoors is almost on the doorstep, with some major outdoor attractions, like the South Mountain Park and Preserve and the Picacho Peak State Park, easily reachable by car.

The designers of Province also decided to make the outdoors part of the appeal of this lifestyle community. Over 30 percent of the land is parkland and open spaces, which amounts to 125 acres, with another 50 acres of scenic lakes and waterways as well as numerous hiking and biking trails.

Although Province doesn’t have a golf course of its own, keen golfers won’t be bored as there are many golf courses within a 30-minute drive of the community and many more as you head north towards Phoenix.

The closest course, less than ten minutes away, is the Ak-Chin Southern Dunes Golf Club which covers 320 acres of the Ak-Chin Indian Reservation. In some places, there are 360-degree views of the surrounding desert landscape, and you can do a virtual tour of the course on their website. It’s been voted among the top five courses to play in Arizona.
