BIOPHILIC
FOUNTAIN HILLS
WELCOMES YOU

ABOUT

Fountain Hills is special, inherently blended with the surrounding Sonoran Desert, situated amongst stunning vistas and mountain ranges, with natural washes and open space woven throughout. Residents choose to live, play and dine in Fountain Hills largely because of the natural environment around them.

The Town of Fountain Hills and its residents have repeatedly taken the initiative in creating a community connected to nature. Current attributes and efforts of the town make it an ideal candidate for the Biophilic Cities Network. These include the inherent and intentional open space within the town, trail systems, recreational opportunities, the community garden, Dark Sky Community and Playful City USA designations, and the overall appreciation of the environment as voiced by residents.

There is no doubt that the Town of Fountain Hills and its residents value nature. The town owes a great deal of its success to the social, economic and environmental benefits that nature provides.

Joining the Biophilic Cities Network would solidify the town's commitment to the nature that surrounds it, and would set the intention to further this commitment into the future.
