Avon Park was settled in 1884 and is the oldest city in Highlands County, Florida. Avon Park is known as "The city of charm" as well as "The city of champions" for its success in athletics over the years. Avon Park, is a quaint little town with a beautiful downtown area. Which is severely lacking in its ability to be a place for consumers. "The Mall" used to be a place of business and an area for teens to spend free time. Now, it is unable to serve either of those purposes and would greatly benefit from an update!
