Avon Town Hall Park

Avon Town Hall Park

With more than 17,000 residents, safe and quiet Avon is smaller than its eastern Hendricks County counterparts Brownsburg and Plainfield. Incorporated in 1995, Avon does not have a town center or downtown, and much of the town is built around U.S. 36 (Rockville Road). This main artery through town boasts a plethora of big box retailers and chain restaurants (beware the stop-and-go traffic during rush hour!).

In Avon, condos and townhomes can be had for under $100K, and single-family homes start in the low $100s. Most single-family homes are in the $140-$300K range. These homes tend to have been built in the last 20 years or so, although 1960s ranches and split-level homes can been found too. Recently builders have been adding to the inventory of homes priced $300K and above.

Avon’s public schools are quite good, with most schools in the Avon Community Schools system earning an “A” or “B” from the Indiana Department of Education for the 2016-17 school year. For kids who are musically inclined, the Avon High School marching band has won numerous state titles over recent years and has been consistently ranked among the best in the country.

For golf lovers, 11 golf courses can be found within a 12-mile radius of Avon. This small community even supports a golf-oriented club, Prestwick Country Club. Like the rest of Hendricks County, Avon maintains some wonderful parks—over 125 acres of park land and open space area, to be exact. To promote wellbeing, community and livability, the town is implementing a master plan that will connect Avon's neighborhoods to parks, trails, and playgrounds.
