Quite impressive!

Who could imagine such a fountain! Spectacular from the air and the ground. I've visited here a dozen or more times and impressed with each visit.

Spectacular, nice setting. would love to see it with lights at night. I can only guess how cool it would be during a concert too.

I found the fountain very impressive especially when there is a good wind on. The third time we saw the fountain we could see a rainbow on the spray side.

This was my first trip to Arizona. We headed to The Fountain since the Fountain Hills Craft Fair was running, is was sure to be an enjoyable day. The Fountain itself was something to see. It goes off - about 300' - for 15 minutes every hour. There is a small memorial with interesting placques with flower beds around.

The fountain in Fountain Hills was the tallest in the world for ten years after it was built. It is turned on every hour (on the hour) for fifteen minutes, reaching a height over 300 feet. It is capable of going to over 560 feet, but they don't usually turn on the third pump. The fountain is surrounded by a... More

This fountain is beautiful and goes off on the hour during the day. It is a great place for a nice long walk.

Check it out. There is a nice park and some cute shops nearby. I do not think it is worth a special trip, but if you are in the area stop over

We've lived in AZ for 40+ years and have seen the fountain from a distance hundreds of times. We love it when we're on the Beeline Highway and catch a glimpse of the fountain high in the sky; it's visible for miles. But last year was the first time we travelled to the park to see it "go off".

What's to review. The Fountain has certain specs that make it better than other Fountains but at the end of the day, it's a Fountain. It certainy adds to the scenic views in Fountain Hills but hey, not to be repetitive, it's a fountain!
