The Family Fun Center, 2 golf courses and Mile Square Park 
.
Fountain Valley is kid friendly destination that includes a family fun center, bowling, Mile Square Park, several golf clubs, tennis center, pools, parks and a fun environment allowing children to romp outdoors. It's a city that has no beach within its borders but is located next door to Huntington Beach, thus enjoying a similar lifestyle to its neighbors. Soft industries such as Fountain Valley Regional Hospital and Kingston Technologies, Inc., plus a focus on education and sports make this a highly desirable place to live and raise a family. Award winning schools where gifted and special needs youth both excel, plus sports programs and a world class health club, Los Caballeros, make Fountain Valley a popular and much visited spot.  For those visiting the beaches, you may pass through Fountain Valley without even knowing.  We recommend you enjoy its many offerings of popular chain restaurants, value shopping at TJ Maxx, Costco, Sam's Club and Pottery Plus, to name a few and sports venues with golf, miniature golf and Mile Square Park. 

 

Fountain Valley Notables include Actress Keri Russell, star of the TV show, Felicity and Dean Torrence of Jan & Dean band.


Born March 23, 1976 in Fountain Valley, California, Keri Russell is best known as the star of the TV series, Felicity (1998-2002).


Russell had the lead role in the coming-of-age television drama that was extremely popular to a wide audience but garnered many fans among a young, high school crowd. Her previous acting jobs included three years on The New Mickey Mouse Club, a role on the 1996 Aaron Spelling drama Malibu Shores and several made-for-TV movies. She has also appeared in feature films, including Dead Man's Curve (1998, with Matthew Lillard), We Were Soldiers (2002, starring Mel Gibson) and The Upside of Anger (2004, starring Kevin Costner). In 2004 she was named as a cast member of Steven Spielberg's television miniseries Into the West.

 

Fountain Valley dates to the 1700's when the King of Spain granted part of the Las Bolsas Land Grant and it was passed to a variety of individuals. Auctioned to Abel Stearns in the 1850's, he renamed it The Stearns Ranch Company. The original area comprised portions of Huntington Beach, Westminster, Garden Grove and the entire city of Fountain Valley. Roch Courreges leased land from the Stearns Ranch Company in 1878 to raise sheep. The San Franciscan later purchased the land which became known as the "Gospel Swamps" but  was renamed Fountain Valley because of the many artesian wells and the abundant local water supply. 

 

Heritage Park behind the Civic Center Complex near Slater and Brookhurst Streets is a collection of historic buildings placed in a lush setting for special events and social functions.  In a city where grade schools take on the names of community founders, historic buildings and landmarks scattered throughout town bring an awareness that not all is lost or forgotten to time. Fountain Valley Historical Society is compiling a list of historic sites which will be posted as soon as it is available. Fountain Valley is a sports Mecca, as well. Bullwinkle's features miniature golf, batting cages, bumper boats and a carnival ride. There's also Fountain Valley Bowl and Mile Square Park with golf, basketball courts and walking trails. Mile Square Golf Course is an 18 hole, 6,643 yards - par 72 course at 10401 Warner  Ave.,  (714) 545-3726 Right next to Mile Square is David L. Baker Memorial Golf Center at 10410 Edinger Ave. It is an 18 hole, 3,894 yards  - par 62 course. (714) 418-2152 or 531-5885.

 

Los Caballeros Swim and Racquet Club is a private club with an outdoor Olympic pool and a training pool surrounded by condos overlooking the water, tennis and racquetball, exercise and fitness rooms, several restaurants and meeting room facilities. International athletes are often hosted at the sports club and some of the nation's top triathletes live locally and train there. When  Summer Olympics were held in Los Angeles in 1984, several Olympic swim teams practiced at "Los Cab." It is across the street from the Fountain Valley Post Office on Newhope between Slater and Warner Streets.
