Avon Reviews

Avon has grown so much in just the last few years that it amazes me to think back about my childhood. I didn't go to school here, but my father and step mother have lived here for over 15 years. I went to church here, I had several friends from youth group who went to school here, and about seventy-five percent of family lives here still! Avon has so much to offer, anywhere from jobs, schools, restaurants and more! You need groceries? There is 4 different stores for you to choose from. Want to spend the day outside? There are two parks with trails, one with a splash pad for those hot summer days, and a doggy park for those who need a large area for their furry kids to run! Being able to live and work in this community is such a privilege. To me, Avon is the heart of Hendricks County and I'm proud to be able to call it home!
Review Avon
Avon is a great town to live in, and I've been there for the past 18 years. The local demographics are well mixed and mostly middle class living in subdivisions. While I personally prefer the farmland and forests to subdivisions, the proximity to Plainfield to the South offers easy access to over 20 miles of paths to bike, jog, etc. The government in Avon hasn't done much in the public works sector, but the town does have a couple nice parks. There's plenty of restaurants and shopping available in town.
Avon is a very nice suburb. Personally I call this place home, it's close enough to the city to stay connected but far enough away to have that small town feel. I would like to see Avon grow with small businesses and expanding it's main street. Right now, Avon's hottest places to go is right down one street and the street neglects to show any scenic views. Many visitors just drive right through without really seeing the Avon I grew up with. Avon's history gets lost in the highway and I would like to see it be incorporated more.
