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 community. There are many public schools, grades K-12. There are many churches around to get involved with. Very friendly people. There are lots of eating choices, and Avon is adding more family owned businesses and unique restaurants rather than more local chains, which I enjoy. There are a couple great parks to check out in town that are pretty quiet with beautiful trails. Great PD and emergency personnel to keep the town safe. Overall a great community to live in.
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.
