Ahwatukee, Arizona is a Phoenix village in the southern part of the city. It is bordered by South Mountain Park, Guadalupe Road, Interstate 10, and the cities of Tempe, Chandler, Guadalupe, and the Gila River Indian Community. It was annexed in the 1980s. Ahwatukee is separated from Phoenix by South Mountain, so a view of Phoenix can only be seen from on top of the mountain.

There are many miles of trails, and two new trails have been added to South Mountain Park, on the western side. Horseback riding is popular along the trails.
