Fountain Hills is a charming small town located on the eastern slope of the McDowell Mountain range, bordering the NE corner of Scottsdale. An upscale community with a population of approximately 22,000 people, it has become a popular choice for residents that are looking for a quiet, low-key lifestyle. Beautiful desert terrain and rolling hills make up the landscape along with stunning views of the McDowell Mountains, Four Peaks and Red Rock.
If you enjoy the outdoors then living in Fountain Hills may be just your style. McDowell National Park is located only 4 miles to the north and offers an abundance of trails at all skill levels for hiking, biking and horseback riding. If golf is your passion, you won’t have far to go as you can arrange a tee time at any of the 3 public courses in town; SunRidge Canyon, Desert Canyon Golf Club or Eagle Mountain. If you prefer a more elegant but casual atmosphere, check out FireRock Country Club, which is the only private golf course offering memberships to any Fountain Hills resident.
Fountain Hills is famous for the “fountain” which is located in the center of town at Fountain Park. The fountain gushes water every hour on the hour for 15 minutes and is a major draw for visitors from around the world. Fountain Hills is also known for hosting two large juried art fairs every February and November, which attracts as many as 200,000 visitors. Other events that make the community so unique: The disc tournament held every year at Fountain Park (players say the course is considered to be one of most challenging disc golf courses in the United States), the one and only Thanksgiving Parade in Arizona is held in Fountain Hills, and the Hashknife Pony Express makes its ride every January, traveling 200 miles from Holbrook to Scottsdale, making a quick stop to deliver mail to the Fountain Hills US post office.
