CAREFREE – One of the world’s largest sundials anchors a colorful and eclectic desert garden in Carefree. This time-telling sculpture measures 90 feet in diameter and points to the North Star. The metal gnomon (which casts the shadow on the sundial) stands 35 feet and stretches 62 feet.
FOUNTAIN HILLS — The Fountain Hills fountain used to be billed as the world’s tallest because it shot a column of water as high as 562 feet into the air. Then a fountain in Illinois topped that mark, but it didn’t operate year-around so the Fountain Hills Fountain became a “Sometimes World’s Tallest.” Now it is neither.
