Named after its infamous landmark, Fountain Hills was recognized by Phoenix Magazine as the best place to live in the Valley of the Sun, citing "a welcome oasis on the outskirts of a metropolis." It’s a master-planned community established in 1970, with incredible panoramic views. The area’s natural desert terrain provides a wide range of outdoor activities including hiking, biking, boating and, especially, golf.
The fountain is the centerpiece of the town, located in the middle of a man-made 28-acre lake. The 560-foot tall plume of water shoots to the sky and is visible for many miles.
Situated in the northeast portion of Maricopa County, about 30 miles from Phoenix, this blossoming town is bordered by the City of Scottsdale to the west, the Salt River Pima-Maricopa Indian Community to the south, the Fort McDowell Yavapai Nation to the east, and the McDowell Mountain Regional Park to the north.
