Avon Indiana is Hendricks County's newest town. Located a mere 8 miles west of Indianapolis, Avon is just minutes from the outer belt of Indianapolis, I-465, and the Indianapolis International Airport. A quiet little burg offering everything you’ll need for day to day living. The little town with big city attributes.
Since its incorporation in 1995, Avon city officials have taken strides in the planning process to ensure the community functions and grows effectively. It seems to be working, too. The 2000 Census resulted in a population of 6,248 and the population projected for the 2010 census is 12,000 within the corporate limits and the estimated population for the Greater Avon area is 45,000. The median age of the residents is in the early 30’s and the average household income is near $80,000.
The backbone of most communities is the public school system. Avon is no different. The area is serviced by Avon Community School Corporation, which has been honored by the State of Indiana with a Four Star rating. This rating was a result of the district earning a top 25 percent ranking among all Indiana schools based on the results of statewide standardized testing scores. The young people in the community are served by six elementary schools for grades K-4, two intermediate schools for grades 5-6, two middle schools for grades 7-8, and a high school for grades 9-12. Avon High School is home to an award winning student produced newspaper and the Avon Marching Black and Gold, winner of numerous State and National championships.
Shopping, Dining and Parks
There is an array of shopping and dining available, including national chains alongside local flair. Being the only Tree City USA community in the County, Avon has invested in maintaining the natural beauty of the area. Part of this effort is displayed in the 84 acre Avon Town Hall Park, inaugurated in 2002. This park offers visitors numerous amenities to enjoy, including an 18 hole disc golf course, walking trails, playgrounds, shelters that may be rented, free Wi-Fi service and fishing.
