Avon’s skate plaza concept could move to Nottingham Park

    Decision leaves old fire station site available for possible community, cultural center

    As the town of Avon continues planning for the future of “La Zona” — connecting the pedestrian mall, its recreation center and Harry A. Nottingham Park — the potential of a skate park, or skate plaza, was introduced to the Town Council. However, where to put this community amenity has been up for debate.

    At its Tuesday, April 25, meeting, the majority of Avon’s Town Council supported moving forward with designs and planning to bring a skate concept to the southeast corner of Harry A. Nottingham Park, also known as the Old Town Hall site.

    The recent push to bring a skate park to Avon started with the Avon Skate Coalition, which formed in 2021 and has been undergoing an “equitable community design process.” The coalition was before the council earlier in April to present the idea of putting a “skate plaza” in the old fire station site.
