Gladden Farms is a “doggone” great place to live!

There’s a reason Gladden Farms is applauded as one of the “Top 10 Master-Planned Communities” in Arizona. Gladden Farms is a uniquely welcoming and fun community connected to an abundance of family amenities, including a new six-acre park at the heart of the community and a Fry’s Food Marketplace starting construction soon.

These new amenities are in addition to the community’s soccer fields and neighborhood parks, green space, landscaped paseos connecting to scenic trails, playgrounds, playfields, a splash pad and picnic and BBQ areas.

Welcome to the Paws ‘n Claws park!

The Gladden Farms community just opened a tricked-out “Paws ‘n Claws” dog park for residents, perfect for socializing with neighbors and getting pups and youngsters outdoors for year-round, high-energy fun.

Our park designers truly thought of everything!


  • Play areas designed specifically for large and small dogs, with appropriately sized, entertaining play and agility structures including a bar jump, A-frame ramp, stepped platforms and crawl tunnel


  • Double zip lines
  • Shaded dinosaur play-and-sandbox digging area with T-Rex head, ribs and tail, dino hatchlings, hatched eggs, and a raptor rock head and tails


  • Landscaped paved pathways with benches leading to the park and interconnected with the entire community path network
  • Shade canopies, ramadas and picnic tables
  • Large grass areas for special events
  • Ample parking (49 spaces total, 4 ADA)
  • Restrooms and water fountains available during park hours
  • Accessibility from 7 am – 9 pm, with evening lighting

There’s also a new community dog park under construction!

Soon Gladden Farms residents and all Marana-area dog lovers will have even more options available for canine play! In February, construction started on the Gladden Farms Community Dog Park, currently scheduled for opening in August ‘23. It will be adjacent to the new soccer fields and feature 32 parking spaces, large and small dog play areas, shade trees and a ramada.

A new Fry’s Food Marketplace is opening in the heart of Gladden Farms

Busy parents, grandparents and working professionals will surely appreciate the convenience of new grocery, retail and dining options just minutes from home! Construction on a new Fry’s Food Stores Marketplace begins this summer. It will be a beautiful 123,000 sq. ft. store featuring fresh, affordable, nutritious food in a one-stop shopping location. It will also feature a fuel center and additional room for retail and food tenants.

The new store will be located east of the intersection of Tangerine Farms and Lon Adams Road, convenient to everyone within the Gladden Farms community.
