We liked walking around the park in the evenings. There was always people playing frisbee golf, reading, walking dogs or just sitting in the grass enjoying the weather.

The fountain goes off every hour for 10 minutes, unless it is too windy. It shoots water quite high and is visible from many points. On St. Patrick's Day the water is green. Looks nice and refreshing against the desert scenery.

Loved the long walking path around the fountain. Lots of wildlife to see. Lots for families to do too.

Its impressive. When people come to the valley we take them here to see the fountain. It is a great place to walk around and have a nice day.

It is impressively to see the fountain from one of the surrounding mountains. The art market in March was for me not worth seeing, the "art" does not meet my taste. There is a salon in Scootsdale and a very useful "hamburger bar". The walkways are also well developed. Overall, the city is decorated worth living.

A wonderful sight which is very impressive. Interesting to see its construction in the local museum. Gather it turns green on St Patrick's Day! Operates on the hour unless it is windy.

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.
