Fountain Hills, Arizona
Fountain Hills is an upscale desert community with hometown character. The richness and quality of life here is evident the moment you crest the mountain pass, leaving behind the hustle and bustle of the rest of the Phoenix area.

Fountain Hills is nestled in the eastern foothills of the McDowell Mountains at elevations 500 to 1500 feet higher than Phoenix. It is located about 20 miles northeast of downtown Phoenix and situated just on the other side of the McDowell Mountains from Scottsdale.

The town is surrounded by mountains with sweeping mountain views including Four Peaks, the Superstition Mountains and the McDowell Mountains, and boasts a natural desert landscape. Beautiful neighborhoods are nestled in the rolling foothills and canyons.

The saguaro-studded landscape provides a scenic backdrop for a wide range of outdoor activities such as golf, hiking, bicycling, bird watching and exploring the McDowell mountains.

Breathtaking views define the community of Fountain Hills. Set in the heart of the Sonoran Desert, the town is one of the great unspoiled destinations in the Greater Phoenix area with unsurpassed desert beauty.

Fountain Hills has the world's fourth tallest fountain. The fountain sprays water for about 15 minutes every hour between 9am and 9pm. The fountain can reach 560 feet in height. When built, it was the world's tallest fountain and held that record for over a decade.

Fountain Hills features great tennis facilities around the community. Public courts maintained by the Parks and Recreation Department can be found at Golden Eagle Park and Four Peaks Park. Two private membership clubs in town also offer tennis amenities. The CopperWynd Resort and Club offers eight championship courts and a center court with stadium seating.

One of the many great aspects of living in the Sonoran Desert is the general scarcity of annoying insects. This area has a large amount of sunshine year round due to its stable descending air and high pressure.

Fountain Hills is located at the northeast edge of the Sonoran Desert. Many first time visitors are shocked at how green and beautiful the Sonoran Desert can be.
