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!

In the early morning take a walk around the lake and enjoy the every hour on the hour fountain display. Or better yet, wait for the afternoon. Stop by Euro Pizza for a Greek Salad and be entertained by the display of the world's tallest fountain. No wait, I've got it.... wait for the evening, get your sweetie, order a... More

The fountain is a marvel in the dessert setting! The park around it is very well maintained and looked like a great place for kids to play. Also enjoyed the sculptures of Teddy, Ron and Abe!

I stayed in the hotel across the street and was amazed by this thing. What was even cooler was being out in the McDowell Mtns and looking back to see this Fountain spraying high into the air. The surrounding park is relaxing and provides some nice walks and scenery.

If you have a chance to eat down by the fountain, it's beautiful scenery. Also, if you want to get some exercising done, take a walk around the fountain. This is something that needs to be seen while in Fountain Hills.

Come see one of the largest computer controlled fountains in the world. Comes on for 15 minutes every hour and depending on wind speed can reach heights of almost 400 feet. On St Patricks day the fountain is dyed green for several minutes in honor of the date. Visit on of the several restaurants located adjacent to the fountain for... More
