I sent photos of this to friends all over the world. Everyone was so impressed and no idea Arizona had such an attraction.

We were in the Phoenix area for a short vacation. Saw an ad for the musical "Your a Good Man Charlie Brown" at the Fountain Hills Theater. We had not heard of this theater before, but it sounded like it could be a good deal. What a great treat! The acting was very good. The music/singing/choreographer were very good. We... More

Nice site, it is green on St. Patrick's Day too. Sadly it is about the only thing to see in Fountain Hills. They like to roll up the sidewalks at 5 p.m. and most places to eat in town stink, that is if they can remain open for more than a few months.

This iconic landmark of Fountain Hills, with the beautiful backdrop of the McDowell Mountains, is very similar to the Jet d’Eau Fountain in Geneva, Switzerland. The centerpiece of a man-made lake in Fountain Park, the fountain’s presence in this small desert community is calming and welcoming. The fountain goes off every hour and can be seen from miles away, with... More

This is one of the highest fountains in the world but it is also so much more. There's a very large park all around with walking paths and exercise facilities and even a splash park for kids. On one side is a small mall with restaurants and cafes offering views of the park and fountain. On St. Patrick's Day they... More

Driving down the high way I spotted this huge gush of water in the air. What the heck? So we went and checked it out. This is the focal point for the Town of Fountain HIlls. Shoots a whopping 330 feet into the air supplied by a 7 foot nozzle. A beautiful park with pond surrounds the fountain. I nice... More

This is such a lovely addition to this Town. A quiet walk around the park is so relaxing with the fountain as a backdrop.

I love the Fountain in the Fountain Park! Its one of the tallest in the world! The park around it has sidewalks for walking or jogging. An amphitheater that is used for entertainment during the year. There is a wonderful playground with shade covers for those really hot days and a great splash park for the kiddies! Lots go grass... More

Take time to walk around the park. The splash park great for small children (under 6) and a busy place with birthday parties. Two great playgrounds are within sight and good for a little older kids. Usually there is some kind of special event here. Great wind for kite flying.
