One of the great amenities in Avery Park is the seasonal community pool, located at 746 Streamside Drive, across from the tennis and pickleball court, and adjacent to the children’s playground.
The pool is approximately 30’ wide by 60’ in length with a depth ranging from 3’ to 4’,
The cabana building has a ladies and mens restroom, changing and shower facilities, meeting room and mechanical room. There is also a picnic area with picnic tables and two charcoal grills.
Also in the covered picnic are is our Little Free Library where you can take a book or leave a book.
Avery Park has two walking trails. The Laurel Trail is 0.3 miles long and goes from Smokemont Drive to the pool. It crosses streams and passes a small pond. The Evergreen Trail also starts on Smokemont Drive. It winds through the woods for 0.6 miles, ending on Blue Mist Way. There are a few benches along the trail where one can sit and enjoy the sound of the water.
The trails are marked with natural wood posts with blue tops. They are maintained by volunteers from Avery Park, led by the AP Trails Committee.
Avery Park’s main pond is a another fun amenity. The pond may be accessed from the pool/tennis court parking area. There are steps leading to a mulched path that takes one to the boardwalk and covered area at the pond. One may also walk down from the steps located just off of Bear Paw Lane. In addition to the covered area, there are two benches beside the pond and two picnic tables as well.
The pond contains catfish, bass and sunfish. A fishing license is not required as this is private property.
For active residents, there is a combined tennis/pickleball/basketball court. There are benches available for guests to watch the game.
Additionally there is an adjustable basketball goal on one end of the court.
