DESCRIPTION: Avondale is a historical area just east of

Many homes used coquina for foundations and fireplaces and most still have the original hardwood floors and bathroom fixtures and tubs.
There are 15 small parks with trees and plants including live oaks, magnolias, palms, azaleas, and dogwoods, conveying a strong sense of time and place. The roads and sidewalks are sometimes uneven and may cause problems for strollers and wheelchairs. Much of the route is shady. Pets must be on leashes and owners are required to clean up waste.
