“That's Why It's Called "Fountain Hills"!”
Reviewed September 7, 2013

Just beautiful! I enjoy the walking path and always meet interesting people. There are shops and restaurants all withing walking distance. The children have a great time, too. There is a wonderful playground and small water area for them to enjoy. Don't miss this attraction!

“love the fountain and the whole area!”
Reviewed August 28, 2013

this fountain comes on every hour on the hour and stays on for about 15 mins. It's a great area and beautiful to see. There's a small water area for kids to play in and get wet too.

“A beautiful fountain in a beautiful park!”
Reviewed August 3, 2013

I live near the fountain so I may be a bit prejudiced but I think it is just beautiful. Many people who live here use it as the background for family photos. The park that the fountain is surrounded by is very nice, with a walking path, pavilions, picnic tables, the whole works. There are also shops and restaurants at the fountain. It is lovely to sit outdoors and have a nice meal by the fountain. One warning, if you are driving a distance to view the fountain, call the city hall first just to make sure it is putting on it's show 15 minutes out of each hour. Rarely, very rarely it closes for upkeep and I would hate for a visitor to be disappointed.

“Almost the TALLEST fountain in the world!”
Reviewed August 1, 2013

Used to be that this was touted as the TALLEST fountain in the world but we heard somewhere that there is now another fountain taller (Russian??). Regardless, it's quite a spectacle. It spouts up on the hour until 9pm and draws lots of people to use the nice park area around it. On certain special days (St. Patrick's Day, Breast Cancer Awareness Day, etc.) the fountain spouts colored water. Beautiful sight!
