The Ahwahnee Hills Regional Park is a 400-acre nature park in the community of Ahwahnee on Highway 49 in Madera County. It serves as a natural oak habitat resource for recreation and education for Madera County and the surrounding counties.  It's a day-use park that offers 3 miles of walking and equestrian trails, a picturesque old red barn, picnic tables and restrooms.  

This historic property in the 1890s was the site of a stagecoach stop.  The Ahwahnee Tavern hosted president Roosevelt for lunch in 1903.  

The park land is owned by Madera County, but the day-to-day operation, maintenance, and improvements are the responsibility of the Friends of Ahwahnee Hills Regional Park, a non-profit organization formed for this purpose. The Friends is an all-volunteer group that solicits your donation of time or money to help this park provide its many benefits to the public in the future.

Entrance to the park is free for individuals, but a fee is required to reserve space or conduct events. When staffing levels permit, the park will be open daily from 8:00 a.m. until dusk Wednesday through Sunday, with pedestrian access Mondays and Tuesdays via the Wassama gate. A park host will be in residence or volunteer docents will be on duty at most times when the park is open to the public.

Please note: Dogs must be kept leashed at all times, per Madera County ordinance. Violators will be ticketed.
