THE FOUNTAIN HILLS WORLD FAMOUS FOUNTAIN
At its full height of 560 feet, the fountain in the center of Fountain Hills is higher than the Washington Monument. It is 10 feet taller than Notre Dame Cathedral, 110 feet higher than the Great Pyramid of Cheops in Egypt and three times as high as Old Faithful in Yellowstone Park.
The white plume of the world famous fountain is visible far beyond Fountain Hills. It can be seen from as far away as the Superstition Mountains, Carefree and even from aircraft.
The fountain is the focal point for community celebrations and the pride of its residents. If you happen to visit during the St. Patrick’s Day celebration, you’ll see the fountain transform to emerald green.
The Fountain is extended to its full height on special occasions, for everyday viewing the Fountain reaches a height of 330 feet!
Our World Famous Fountain runs every hour on the hour for 15 minutes from 9 a.m.-9 p.m. everyday of the week! This fountain is a celebration of life and water where it is most appreciated – in the middle of the desert.
