This gigantic fountain is visible for miles! In hot Fountain Hills it is cooling seeing the water spraying with the breeze. It is a beautiful feature near the stores and restaurants.

The community and civics have done such a good job with this outdoor space - on the hour the fountain is brilliant to watch and walk around the brilliant park and see the sculptures

Not much shady areas to sit and watch the fountain. The families with lots of kids rule this area. It is okay for a short walk in the park for seniors. Younger adults would need more space.

This was a beautiful place to see. Each hour for 15 minutes this fountain starts up. There is a really nice walk all the way around the pond where the fountain sits in the middle. They have beautiful statues along the walkway as well. You...More

There are park tables on site BUT on weekends they do fill quickly. Best bet is to take a blanket with your picnic basket.
