I have lived in Avon for almost 3 years. I've lived close all my life so I am very familiar with Avon. All the great restaurants and family fun places are great to have so close. Chuck e Cheese, Monster Golf just to name a few. Avon is very safe, police station all over town waiting for speeders, or criminals. Avon schools are some of the best around. Ellis park is so much fun to go sledding in the winter and explore the woods in the summer time, they also have a splash pad! Pet friendly too! Also one of the best hospitals around in my opinion is only located in Hendricks county. Hendricks Regional Health.
