Avondale is the home of Phoenix International Raceway, an auto racing facility. Westview High School, La Joya Community High School, and Agua Fria High School are high schools in Avondale.
Avondale, incorporated in 1946, experienced rapid residential and commercial growth in the years since 1980. Once primarily a sparsely populated farming community with many acres of alfalfa and cotton fields, Avondale has transformed into a major bedroom suburb for Phoenix. Several major residential subdivisions and shopping centers have recently been built on former farmland, many adjacent to Interstate 10.
Avondale first appeared on the 1920 U.S. Census as the 45th Precinct of Maricopa County (AKA Coldwater). In 1930, it simply appeared as the Coldwater Precinct. It was recorded as having a Spanish/Hispanic majority for that census (the census would not separately feature that racial demographic again until 1980). With the combination of all county precincts into 3 districts in 1940, it did not report on that census. In 1946, it was incorporated as the town of Avondale and has appeared on every census since 1950. In 1959, it upgraded to a city.
Avondale has a large amount of sunshine year round due to its stable descending air and high pressure. According to the Köppen Climate Classification system, the city has a Hot desert climate, abbreviated "Bwh" on climate maps.
Overall, Avondale is such a safe and comfortable place to live in. A pretty good size city, not a lot of people, good for children and teens, a safe environment for people to live in. Local food markets and shopping centers are close to most communities.
