I went on a beautiful Saturday evening right at sunset, there were beautiful clouds and a light breeze. I checked online upon my arrival and found out that the fountain flows on the hour from 9am to 9pm for 15 min. Lucky for me it was just a few minutes until 7pm. I sat in the park like many others...

This fountain sprays higher than any other I've seen and really adds to the ambiance of Fountain Hills, AZ which is a nice and very scenic little town. The walking path is a nice place fog a stroll or power walk rounding the fountain, passing statues and people playing frisbee football or walking their dogs.

Great statues along the park, scenic views. Nice walking, running path around the lake. Fountain shoots off every hour for 15 minutes, very impressive

Great walk around, about 30 mins. Go on the hour to see the fountain. We visit the fountain every time we visit Fountain Hills, AZ. A beautiful small park off all ages.

The fountain goes off on the hour during daylight hours and runs for about 15 minutes. The grassy park surrounding the lake make for a nice place to relax and unwind for a little while. Could use much more seating but still it was very nice.

This fountain is one of the larger ones in the world, although they rarely run it at "full-throttle" (500 feet high). Still, its more relaxed 300 foot norm, all in all, it is a pretty sight to see on the hour for a 15 minute stint from 9 AM until 9 PM. There is a nice walk around the pond... More

My husband and I went to dinner at a delicious Italian restaurant in Fountain Hills. It was such a lovely night that we decided to see the area. We stumbled on the walk around the fountain and were pleasantly surprised by the artwork, sunset, and fountain. I wouldn't drive there to see the fountain but if you are in the... More

4th of July weekend. The fountain is way cool. I probably wouldn't want to be there when it's so crowded again, but will definitely go back to see it when it's less popular.

This little gem is situated by the neighboring the Fort McDowell Yavapai Nation, Salt River Pima-Maricopa Indian Community and Scottsdale, AZ. The little town is a thriving community. We loved the small town vibe and artistic landscape. As you enter the City of Fountain Hills you will see the beautiful landscape of mountains, cactus and serious Arizona beauty. The homes... More
