In November 2009, the Town dedicated nearly $3.2 million in improvements to the Desert Vista Park, including lighted athletic fields, a restroom and concessions building, picnic and shade ramadas, age-appropriate children's playgrounds, walking paths, landscaping improvements, area lighting, and new parking areas. The lighted athletic fields are primarily used by the Fountain Hills Soccer Club, who have consolidated the majority of games and practices to the improved facilities at the park.
One of the town's most used amenities is the Off-Leash Recreational Facility, or Dog Park at Desert Vista Park. The Dog Park is a three-acre fenced facility that allows pet owners the opportunity to let their dogs run free. Dogs must be licensed and have proper vaccinations. The Dog Park is divided into two fenced areas, one for larger dogs and the other smaller canines. The large/active dog area can be accessed from entrances on either Tower Drive or Desert Vista. The small/passive dog area can only be accessed from Tower Drive.
