The Town of Fountain Hills has partnered with EarthCam to bring live streaming views of its World Famous Fountain, which celebrated its 50th Anniversary this past December, to people around the world. At its full height of 560 feet, the fountain is taller than the Washington Monument. It is also three times as high as Yellowstone Park’s Old Faithful. The recognizable white plume is visible far beyond Fountain Hills, and can be seen from the Superstition Mountains, Carefree and even from aircraft. The fountain runs every day of the week and every hour on the hour for 15 minutes from 9 a.m. - 9 p.m.
“The Town of Fountain Hills is excited to be able to share our iconic signature fountain with people all over the world. We believe that our Town’s natural beauty will captivate others as it has our residents for over 50 years. We are grateful for our partnership with EarthCam that enables this technology to broadcast these images anywhere on earth,” said Mayor Ginny Dickey.
The fountain is the pride of its residents and a focal point for community celebrations. As event schedules return to normal, the livestream camera will allow people everywhere to experience the Town’s signature events, including the greening of the fountain on St. Patrick’s Day, 4th of July fireworks and Balloon Glow.
The livestream camera can be accessed on the Experience Fountain Hills website at www.experiencefountainhills.org/fountain.
In addition, EarthCam will feature the fountain livestream on its website along with the some of the world’s most famous landmarks and destinations, including Times Square in New York, the St. Louis Arch, and the Seattle Space Needle.
