The purpose of North Encanto Neighborhood Association (NENA) is to preserve & enhance the historic character of the North Encanto Neighborhood, & to improve the quality of life for its residents  by creating a safe, vibrant & engaged community. Period of Significance: 1939-1956.

The North Encanto Historic Neighborhood is my personal, current historic district residence. Therefore, I can tell you first hand that it is one of the most wonderful historic districts this city has to offer! On a daily basis, you’ll see residents walking their dogs, walking with their kids (and more dogs), jogging, playing and just hanging out for a good, friendly chat.

Where Neighbors Know Each Other’s Names

So many of us neighbors know each other and continue to get to know each other. We have many neighborhood functions from Groundhog Day parties, Christmas & New Year’s gatherings, Halloween parties, joint neighborhood block yard sales and a bunch of other street festivities. We actually block off a street or two while food vendors attend along with our local fire fighters and more. Games are played by all the wonderful children while the adults hang out, laugh, eat, drink and get to know each other more & more.

A Tight-Knitted Community

We look out for one another. We watch each others pets, homes and whatever’s needed and wanted keeping it a tight knitted community. Check out North Encanto’s non-HOA Neighborhood’s Association website. Check out what azcentral.com has to say about North Encanto Historic District.
