Avalon Park Avalon Park is a neighborhood community in the east side of Orange County, Florida that has adopted a new concept in urban planning called Noe-Traditionalism”, wherein the town maintains many traditional ideals of small town living and aesthetic design while still being progressive in infrastructure and modern conveniences. Its town center looks like a hybrid of a turn of the century downtown made up-to-date with modern architectural components. Homes in the area also have a retroactive look, with large front yards, front porches and tree lined streets, giving a look of classic America in the new millennium.
The area is nestled halfway between Orlando and the Atlantic Coast, with both being only 20 minutes away via route 50 to the north and hwy 528 to the south. Disney World is also only 20 minutes from the community and the Orlando International Airport is only 15 minutes away.
