Fountain Valley is a suburban city of the Orange County in California.
The Huntington Beach, Garden Grove and Santa Ana River encompass this region.
Incorporated in 1957, the name of this city reflects the fact that it has a very high water table and many artesian wells. Early settlers were able to use this feature of the land to develop it as an agricultural sector. Many tracts of agricultural land have been developed into offices recently, helping create new job opportunities and small business owners in this region.
As a centre for arts and culture the city is host to events such as the Summer Fest that takes place in the Mile Square Regional Park.It is also known for its Festival of Arts, Classic Car Show, Orange County Chocolate Festival, Heritage Park Museum and its famed Reptile Zoo.
This urban area has both indoor sports like skating and outdoor activities like nature and wildlife tours. With the perfect balance of fun activities like the Easter hunt and a great number of educational institutions to choose from, Fountain Valley is an ideal locale for kids to grow up in.
