Welcome to Ahwatukee Foothills, one
of the 15 villages designated by the City of Phoenix. The people who live, work
and play in this thriving community share the intimacy of small town living,
while enjoying the plentiful amenities of a bustling metropolis close at hand.
Because Ahwatukee is nestled so closely to the surrounding mountains, it gives
the feel of an independent city. The village is bound by I-10 to the east along
with the cities of Chandler and Tempe, to the north is South Mountain and the
Gila River Indian Reservation to the west and south.
A portion of Ahwatukee’s appeal is
attributed to the strong educational system. The Kyrene School District serves
the pre-k through 8th grade sector. It is one of the top performing districts
in the state with all 25 schools receiving “excelling” or “highly performing”
ratings. The two high schools are part of the Tempe Union High School district
and both boast “excelling” ratings.
Ahwatukee offers fine shops,
boutiques and a variety of fabulous restaurants. Residents of this prosperous
village seldom have to leave the area for anything. Ahwatukee boasts large
department stores, abundant grocers, health food outlets, several general
retail outlets and specialty stores. You will also find a movie theater
megaplex, country clubs and public recreation centers.
With the fall brings the finest
weather in the country from October to May. When most cities put activities to
bed for the winter, the village is just getting started. A Farmer’s Market
offering a wide variety of regional produce, baked goods and crafts offers
local artists and entrepreneurs an outlet for their small businesses. Enjoy
concerts in the park, arts and crafts festivals, several heated community
pools, along with tennis and basketball courts.
If you enjoy the outdoors, South
Mountain State Park is the largest city owned park in the country. The
picturesque setting is perfect for hiking, biking or horseback riding. Outdoor
sports are year round here. There are leagues to suit any age at any time of
the year. Ahwatukee is also home to many fitness and training centers and a
state of the art YMCA.
