10 Reasons Why We All Love Living In Fountain Hills

Top 10 Sam Churchhill Grapic Image

1. First and foremost, it’s beautiful. I like to tell people, I live in a postcard. Everywhere you go in Fountain Hills there are beautiful views, Four Peaks, the McDowells, the Matazals, Weavers Needle, the desert fauna and all its critters and our fabulous Fountain.

2. We are a “hometown community“ with friendly neighbors, holiday parades, clubs and organizations for everyone including a dynamite senior program, a town hall, a community center and a great library.

3. The dog park, its awesome, well over 3 fenced in acres for our four footed friends, big and small to run and play. It’s one of the best in the Valley and we are proud of it.

4. You can get anywhere in Fountain Hills within seven minutes for great shopping, restaurants, doctors, dentists, parks, places of worship and tons of other places.

5. We have great schools, preschools with quality childcare, a public Montessori School and a charter school.  The Fountain Hills Unified School District has student/teacher ratios well within board-mandated guidelines with a staff of 125 highly qualified teachers. Administrators and teachers have meticulously molded a strong educational curriculum as the focal point of Fountain Hills’ daily instructional program. The district also has an award winning Mentoring Program.

6. Fountain Hills has recreation and outdoor activities for everyone. We live where others vacation. Four golf courses and We-Ko-Pa located within minutes of Fountain Hills, Biking, hiking trails, a fitness center with more than 18,000 square feet of workout space.

7. What can I say Fountain Park rocks! Where else can you find a 64 acre public park that includes a 29-acre effluent lake, an 18 hole championship disc golf course, two age defined children’s playgrounds, park benches, ramadas, walking paths and a “Splash Pad” for the little ones and yes their moms and dads to cool off in the summer months. Then there is our famous majestic Fountain that has a jet stream that can project up to 560 ft under optimum conditions. The current daily height now is estimated at about 330 feet. At night when lit it takes a completely different look than during the day.

8. Art and Culture is very prevalent in Fountain Hills. The community has an extensive public art collection, art galleries, and art shows and art league. Theater is an integral part of the town. Ballet Arizona annually brings its preview show “Ballet Under the Stars” to Fountain Hills Park. We have a Community Chorus, Community Band and our own Fountain Hills Community Theater entering its 25th season in 2011.

9. Fountain Hills has some of the top doctors, dentists, and specialists in the Valley. Our Fountain Hills Medical Campus has a Cardiovascular center, a full-service laboratory, a state of the art medical imaging service center, dermatologists, ophthalmologists and other specialized areas of medicine. There really is no reason to leave Fountain Hills for quality medical care.

10. Last one of the best things about living in Fountain Hills is you can make “u-turns”. We have nice wide streets to accommodate these “mostly” legal driving maneuvers.

Just so you know there are actually a lot more than ten reasons why we all love living in Fountain Hills but we needed to start somewhere. That said, if these 10 reasons have peaked your interest in possibly moving to our great community, we invite you to search some of our homes for sale in Fountain Hills, we would love to have you as a neighbor!
