I was actually surprised at how much I enjoyed this!

Granted, we watched the fountain turn on and off for about three hours on the porch at Grapeable, which is really the only way to do it. But it's a LOT bigger than I would've... read more

Granted, we watched the fountain turn on and off for about three hours on the porch at Grapeable, which is really the only way to do it. But it's a LOT bigger than I would've expected (despite knowing going in that it is *currently* the fourth largest fountain in the world). It kind of ruins you to any of the... More

just a straight column. But with amazing pressure and height. Plain white lights at night, which looks great. Nice park to walk and view.

A leisurely stroll around the entire lake takes less than an hour. Frisby golf course looks challenging with a good chance of losing equipment in the lake. Impressive fountain in the middle of the lake goes off every hour and shoots 300 feet into the air. Well maintained park but be prepared for more than an average amount of duck... More

It only goes straight up 560 feet but at sunset it's so pretty. At dark it is rumored to be impressive with lighting.

Every hour the fountain spurts up in this upscale community. If windy its spray is very cooling, playgrounds nearby, parking may be difficult but worth waiting for if in the area, possibly take a picnic whilst you wait.

This is a lovely park in the centre of Fountain Hills AZ where the enormous geyser goes off every hour. You can actually see it for miles. It is a well used park with a lovely wide pathway around the small lake that also is home to many birds in the area. The playground is nice and there are many... More

Lovely walk around the lake with a whole business section at the one end. Fountain runs at the top of every hour for 5-15 minutes depending on winds, etc. Beautiful feature!

In the middle of the desert here is that giant fountain (looks like a geyser really) almost 600 feet high active on the hour for 5-10 minutes at a time. Is is located in the middle of town on N Saguaro Blvd. in the middle of an artificial lake surround by a park. It's quite impressive and was for quite... More

From a kids playground with splash pad to a pro disc course, this park around the 300+ ft fountain is a great attraction and spot for exercise or relaxation

Walking around the lake or attending one of the several events that are held there, the Fountain is bound to catch your attention. Kids and adults will enjoy alike. Catch some of the local venues that overlook the lake and it will most likely be memorable!
