A vibrant, master planned community of approximately 25,000 people, Fountain Hills is natural, by design, with a wide range of outdoor activities. The centerpiece of Fountain Hills is our beautiful fountain spraying water 15 minutes at the top of the hour in a plume rising from a 32 acre, man-made lake. When built, it was the world’s tallest fountain, yet decades later is still one of the world’s tallest.
Known for its Southwestern Art Festivals, the community is also home to an amazing variety of events and activities like concerts, movies in the park and events like Ballet Under the Stars, Oktoberfest, St. Patrick’s Festival, the “Stroll in the Glow,” “Halloween in the Hills,” and Thanksgiving Day Parade, all part of the Home Town spirit of the community. There is an award-winning Theater, community chorus & band and more. A public art collection is one of the finest in the western US.
