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

The Fountain is the main visual attraction in Fountain Hills. Every hour on the hour, the 100ft. fountain is visible all across the valley. The park is a great place to bring kids or to take a stroll around the lake. Typically, the fountain is up for 12 minutes each hour, but that time may be cut short in high... More

It's interesting. It took me a while to figure out that it goes off every hour for 15 minutes. So it's all in the timing. Quaint downtown area to walk around. Nice scenic city with mountains in the background.

Beautiful park. The kids really loved the water park. They spent a couple of hours playing in the water.
