Avalon Park is one of Orlando’s newest communities located in an incorporated area of southeastern Orange County. Begun in 1996, the mixed-use development has seen extensive growth during the first decade of the new millennium, particularly with the establishment of Downtown Avalon Park, which was built in two phases with a clock tower as its centerpiece.

The downtown area was designed with two major, four-story structures whose varied facades give the appearance of separate buildings that form a cohesive architectural theme. The buildings provide a mix of residential and retail space, offering entrepreneurs a unique opportunity to run a cafe, store or office on the street level, while making the upper floors into their living space.

Like so many emerging developments in the Orlando area, Avalon Park was designed according to the concept of New Urbanism, which espouses a village of traditional neighborhoods within walking distance of the downtown area. Furthering the promotion of a pedestrian lifestyle, the 1,860-acre development has some 250 acres of man-made lakes with walking/biking trails throughout the plan and a pool with a cabana located in the center of each neighborhood village. When completed, Avalon park will consist of 3,400 single-family units; 1,431 apartments, condominiums and town houses; and more than 500,000 square feet of commercial space.

The wide variety of residential spaces available in the still-developing community will provide housing for a diverse population. Young families will be drawn by two elementary schools, a middle school and a high school as well as day care facilities, a YMCA and churches. Meanwhile, the Avalon Center for Technical Excellence, a satellite campus of Winter Park Tech, Orange County Public Schools, offers a variety of technical curricula for employment in the pharmacy, patient care, digital media and other fields, as well as GED prep computer classes and adult continuing education courses.

Seniors will be accommodated by an 80,000-square-foot assisted living facility with such amenities as spas and community gardens, as well as an independent living facility and age-restricted multifamily development downtown.

Avalon Park already has attracted an array of retail businesses and professional services. Women’s Health Care of Orlando opened an office there in 2010. There are already more than 15 places to dine in Avalon Park, with businesses ranging from bakeries and ice cream parlors to sushi bars and pizzerias. Recent additions to the mix include Eastside Bistro and Bayridge Sushi. In addition to having its own Publix supermarket, the community has many shopping options, including Pottery Pad, Avalon Park Jewelry and MTREND boutique; plus, there are plenty of services such as banks, Realtors, accounting firms, hair salons, dry cleaners and other professionals.

Because the community strives to be a development where neighbors know one another, the town has several annual events that encourage socialization. Avalon Park holds a traditional Fourth of July celebration, as well as Oktoberfest, a Halloween “Spooktacular” and a holiday-themed festival called Avalon Aglow in December. The community also holds many family-oriented events during the year such as outdoor movies and carnival-style festivals for children.

 

Avalon Park is home to 5 elementary schools (Avalon Park, Stone Lakes, Timber Lakes, Camelot and Castle Creek), a middle school (Avalon Middle), one high school (Timber Creek) and Avalon Tech School.
