The World Famous Fountain!

The center piece of Fountain Hills, Arizona is the World Famous Fountain which at one time was the world’s tallest! (Now that claim belongs to a fountain in Saudi Arabia).

The World Famous Fountain!

 

The Fountain serves as the backdrop for a wide variety of community events and the 64 acre park that surrounds the fountain is always buzzing with activity. Fountain Park is a favorite site for wedding photo shoots, birthday parties and family picnics. Walkers admire the many pieces of public art that dot the 1.25 mile walking trail around the lake and the Frisbee golf course provides another fun park activity.

The fountain normally reaches 330 feet in height although on rare occasions all three pumps will be used to shoot water 560 feet upwards! To achieve these heights, the fountain uses a Swiss made nozzle weighing nearly a ton and more than seven feet in length.

The fountain “goes off” for 15 minutes on the hour, every hour between 9 am and 9 pm, although the Fountain Hills Town Council is considering expanding the operation for longer periods of time.

Fountain Park and the World Famous Fountain are located along Saguaro Blvd between El Lago Drive and Palisades Blvd. Noted below are events scheduled for September at the park.

  • Ballet in the Park, Thursday the 20th of September 
  • Movie in the Park, (Dr. Suess’ The Lorax) on Saturday the 22 of September 
  • Oktoberfest, September 28 & 29
