What was once a cattle ranch until 1970 is now the sunny town of Fountain Hills. The place boasts of its naturally gorgeous desert terrain, spectacular views, sprawling golf courses and friendly locals. Located in the town center is a towering fountain which the town is named after. It spews water once every hour, to a height of 560 feet and is one of the main attractions especially for tourists. The fountain was built by Robert McCulloch, the same guy who reconstructed the London Bridge in Lake Havasu City a year after.
Fountain Hills gets a lot of sunshine almost all year round and along with the beautiful nature that surrounds it, the place is perfect for outdoor activities such as picnics, camping, hiking, boating, biking, trekking, golf, and other sports. The town is surrounded by lovely borders- to the west is the McDowell Mountains and Scottsdale and to the east is the Fort McDowell Yavapai Nation. Up north is the McDowell Mountain Regional Park and down south lies the Salt River Pima Maricopa Indian Community.
The town houses over 22,000 residents and offers various types of accommodation including huge custom homes, condominiums, and apartments of various sizes. Fountain Hills is friendly not only to those who are starting a family but to retirees as well with excellent retirement programs and homes.
In light of art being one of Fountain Hill’s greatest heritages, one encounters more than a hundred interesting art installations that are publicly displayed throughout town. These pleasant surprises include sculptures made of bronze and other interesting materials, and the display begins at the Avenue of the Fountains where eight individual fountains have been beautifully constructed.
Fountain Hills is a living, breathing art space with natural hills and desert as backdrop. It captures the hearts and senses of anyone who cares to visit and who find themselves opting to stay for a very long while.
