You’re Invited!

Not long ago, Avalon Park West announced Beazer Homes’ closing on the purchase of 55 home sites in the community. We’ve come a long way in such a short time! As you can tell from the picture, the Beazer Homes model has officially been completed, and is currently in the middle of design stages. At the end of this month, Beazer will officially be opening their model center doors to the public- but this won’t be your average Grand Opening…


This will be a Grand Opening Carnival! Complete with a food truck rally, pony rides, petting zoo, bounce house, rock wall, face painting, DJ, and a dance floor, Beazer Homes is doing it BIG in Avalon Park West. So forget your plans next weekend, and get yourselves (and the kiddos) over to Avalon Park West on May 30th for this awesome, one time only, FREE family Grand Opening Event!
