This upscale community in the Portage School District sits on the divide of peaceful rural living and convenient urban amenities. Avalon Forest/Avalon Woods in south Portage provides easy access to some of the best shopping and dining in Kalamazoo County, including Crossroads Mall, grocery stores, and restaurants that range from fine dining to fast food. A two-mile drive in any other direction finds any one of five lakes, three nature preserves, multiple parks and a gaming area. Residents who enjoy the outdoors have no shortage of recreational activities within a five-minute drive. For families with active children, the community is a few miles from the Portage Soccer Complex, a little league park, multiple tennis courts and Wings Stadium hockey arena, home of the K-Wings.
