Pocket Parks


In addition to Harry A. Nottingham Park, Avon has several smaller “pocket parks” throughout the Town. These parks provide a place for Avon’s neighborhoods to play, recreate, and gather.

Park rules and regulations must be followed at all times.


Eaglebend Pocket Park

Eaglebend Pocket Park is located at the east end of Eaglebend Drive. This one-fourth acre park has play equipment designed for the 5-12 year old age group and a swing set for this age group. Even though there are no restroom facilities or water, this green space can be enjoyed by picnicking, walking, or just sitting and watching the children play.


O'Neal Spur Pocket Park

This one acre site is located at the intersection of Old Trail Road and O'Neal Spur. The O'Neal Spur Pocket Park has grown from open space greenbelt to a park with playground equipment for both 2-5 and 5-12 year-olds. Along with the play area, a 20 X 30' shelter provides a shady area to relax and enjoy a picnic.

In the summer of 2008, a .24 acre dog park was also constructed. It is open year round. Owners are required to pick up after their dogs.

Restroom facilities are available and the park is ADA Accessible. Ample parking is available. The picnic shelter is open for reservations for gatherings with less than 50 people. Picnic shelter reservations can be made online through the Recreation Department. If the picnic shelter is not reserved, it is open to the public on a first come, first serve basis.


Wildridge Pocket Park

Located adjacent to the Fire Station in Wildridge, the Wildridge Pocket Park is 2/3 acres and includes a neighborhood play area and swings designed for 5-12 year olds. In addition, the basketball court includes both a regulation height rim and a shorter rim for small kids.

Picnic areas and a water fountain are available. The park is ADA accessible with limited parking.

Open Containers in Pocket Parks

At its regular meeting on Tuesday, April 13, 2021, the Avon Town Council approved open containers and public consumption of alcohol (aka BYOB) at Harry A. Nottingham Park and in Avon's Pocket Parks between 11:30 a.m. and until 30 minutes after dusk. Glass and Glass Bottles are not permitted. The Avon Town Council urges responsible consumption and is committed to maintaining a family friendly atmosphere in our public areas.
