What makes Avalon such a great place to live?
With a foot firmly planted in the heart of Orléans’ urban amenities and the surrounding area’s natural landscape, Avalon is a great neighbourhood for homeowners of all ages and families of all sizes.
Two great communities to choose from
Avalon Aquaview and Avalon Vista are the newest additions to the Avalon neighbourhood. They join an established family of communities from the original Avalon and the recently sold-out Avalon Encore.
If you want to live steps from all the action and amenities along Innes Road, choose Avalon Aquaview. You’ll enjoy an upbeat, more urban lifestyle while surrounded by multi-use pathways, beautiful green space and Aquaview Pond with its beautiful fountain feature.
For more quiet moments with nature in a community bordering established communities, choose Avalon Vista. Situated around a large pond and bordered by green space and gently sloping hills, Vista is your little piece of paradise in Orléans.
Endless access to the great outdoors
A 15-minute drive away, homeowners can enjoy an afternoon of fresh air and sunshine as you explore Mer Bleue Bog hiking area. There are over 3,000 hectares of protected nature surrounding a 7,700-year-old bog providing unparalleled access to some of the region’s most impressive natural features. Stroll along the boardwalk and observe the wildlife that call Mer Bleue home.
There are over 20km of hiking trails that serve visitors year-round for cross-country skiing and snowshoeing. Bring your camera when you visit, too. This area is a popular spot for bird watching.
Avalon is conveniently located near some of Orléans’ best stops for those in need of some retail therapy. Shopping centres along Innes Road bring your favourite big-box stores like JYSK, Home Depot, Winners, Lowes, Walmart and more.
