North Avondale has been described as a beautiful piece of heaven in the middle of the city. A place where you know your neighbors and care about each other.
Foremost among North Avondale’s attributes are the large, old single family homes with distinguished architectural style, large lots, and stately trees. Equally important are the people who live in North Avondale. They are highly diverse racially, socially and economically, but with the common bond of wanting to make the neighborhood and the city in which they live a better place. North Avondale is also conveniently located in the heart of Cincinnati, minutes from downtown, shopping, schools, religious and cultural institutions.
North Avondale is home to the North Avondale Montessori School, the New School, Xavier University, Burton Public School, Zion Temple Christian Academy, Shiloh Preparatory School, and Cincinnati Christian College.
Other nearby schools include Roger Bacon Catholic High School, the SCPA – School for Creative & Performing Arts, St. Ursula, University of Cincinnati, Xavier University, Walnut Hills High School, and the Summit Country Day, among many others.
The community has an active group organization called NANA (North Avondale Neighborhood Association). They also have a business district group currently in the works with future developments on Reading Road. There are some thriving businesses in this region and more to come in the next few years.
