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
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!
My experience with Avondale thus far has been GREAT! I have been coming to Avondale for the past 4 years. I attend the local community college and a member of a local gym. I love the environment and how close the shopping areas are. As well as the variety of food stores, restaurants, and fast food places it has to offer.
