Reputed as home to one of the world’s tallest fountains, Fountain Hills offers an interesting mix of urban life and picturesque sceneries. The fountain was built by Robert P McCulloch in 1970. Many gather to watch the water sprays that occur for around fifteen minutes every hour from nine in the morning to nine at night. The sculpture of the water lily from which the plume rises is made of concrete and is located in the center of the lake. Powered by three turbine pumps, water sprays through the nozzle to reach a remarkable height.
