The fountain comes to life on the hour every hour and is absolutely spectacular. It lasts for approximately 15 minutes so make sure you get your timings right. The surrounding park is really lovely and is a wonderful place to walk around. There are several places where you can get some shade and if it all gets a bit too... More

Seeing this fountain for the first time is so cool. It shoots up every hour on the hour and lasts for about 15 minutes (shoots up close to 300'). On St Patricks Day the fountain is dyed green! Right across the street from the park is a 1.1 mile trail called the "OverLook Trail" which climbs up so a hiker... More

The fountain is a nice place to just sit around and relax on the grass or the bench and watch the fountain. When it is cooler or in the evenings in the summer it is a great place to go for a walk around the park.

Great place to walk your dog. Every time we are in Fountain Hills, we take a good long walk around the fountain. Also, some trails very close by take you on a short scenic view of the fountain.

The Fountain Hills fountain and lake are like a mirage in the desert against the backdrop of Four Peaks and Superstition Mountains. Great place to visit, stroll and sit at the restaurant watching the fountain.

Nice park for jogs and walks. Other than the amazing fountain, not much happening there. They have the odd concerts, but the idea is also to try the restaurants with views of the fountain.

We just moved to the area and experienced the Fountain in May. It was nice to bring our dog there and walk around the Fountain. It is now July and too HOT. There are several good restaurants around the Fountain and they all have outdoor dining. There is a great place for kids to play in a sprinkler. The Fountain... More

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
