The Fountain Hills residents
enjoy an active lifestyle made possible by
a moderate climate through three quarters
of the year, by clean air and clear skies,
and by ready access to a host of outdoor activities
in our immediate vicinity. We take full advantage
of a dynamic and well-maintained parks and
Fountain Park is the town’s showpiece with
its beautiful lagoon and world-famous Fountain.
It’s a wonderful 30-acre park providing plenty
of grassy areas and shelters for picnics, a large
and newly redesigned children’s playground
with waterplay area, a nine-hole “disc golf”
course, an amphitheatre for concerts and live performances,
a Veterans’ Memorial, and a perimeter walking
path that completely encircles Fountain Lake.
Directly adjacent to the High School campus, Golden
Eagle Park has several lighted multipurpose fields
for baseball, softball, and soccer. It also has
basketball and tennis courts, sand volleyball and
horseshoe pits. This 25-acre park provides a large
picnic ramada for group events, 2 large playgrounds,
grassy play areas, a concession stand, and a walking
path around the park’s perimeter.
FOUR PEAKS NEIGHBORHOOD
Another large, active-use park, Four Peaks is adjacent
to Four Peaks Elementary School and Fountain Hills
Boys and Girls Club. It offers 2 large multipurpose
fields and lighted basketball courts. A walking
bridge spans a wash to access a third lighted playing
field, large picnic ramada and barbecue pit.
The newest addition to Fountain Hills’ park
system, Desert Vista was made possible by a land
donation from MCO Properties. A huge, grassy play
area is frequently used by local youth soccer and
lacrosse teams. Below this field, there is an expansive,
fenced off-leash facility for area dog owners to
enjoy outdoor play with their pets.
Throughout the year, the Fountain Hills Parks and
Recreation Department provides a wealth of scheduled
sports programs, recreational and cultural activities,
and classes and information seminars for town residents
of all ages. For more information, please call 480-816-5124.
