Avondale is a small suburb of Phoenix, Arizona. It has plenty of business that provide different services at different cost. Avondale also contains enough public schools for young students to attend to. Another awesome thing about Avondale is that it has a lot of parks for a lot of recreational activities. The public libraries are also a great access for recreations activities for people of all age. One thing to experience in Avondale is the Nascar racing events, which has a perfect background of the gorgeous avondale mountains. Overall Avondale is a small suburb of phoenix that is still being populated by a diversity of people,culture and tradition. One thing i would like to see change is Friendship Park located in Avondale to go under construction to repair the park fields ands restrooms!
Review Avondale
Avondale’s public areas are well-kept and clean, I have no room for complaints in its appearance. The city provides amazing opportunities to families who need help, this includes help with food shortage, teen pregnancy, and any difficult living situation. The schools are not the greatest at pushing students and should provide a more challenging curriculum.Traffic gets a little cramped during spring and fall considering the Phoenix International Raceway is really close. There are lots of opportunities for the young workforce in finding jobs at grocery stores and fast food restaurants. I cannot speak for the entire city, but my nightlife experience is sometimes difficult overcome. Police cars are constantly patrolling in public areas, I do recommend for them to pass through neighborhoods at least once every night. I would also like there to be larger events in the community as I have seen huge parades and activities that bring the community together in neighboring cities.
This area in Phoenix is my favorite when it comes to picking a place for residency. I personally find Avondale very beautiful with its views and nature. Although it might be a little costly, it is worth all of it. Plus, there are many good public schools around that family members can attend. Avondale is one of the many reasons why Arizona is amazing!
