Avondale is one of the fastest growing cities in the West Valley, settled at the base of the Estrella Mountains and just a 15-minute commute from downtown Phoenix. Thousands of NASCAR and racing fans descend on this city each year, attending races at Phoenix International Raceway (PIR), which is a significant boost to the local economy. Located in the heart of the west valley, Avondale is also nearby the University Of Phoenix NFL Stadium – home to the Arizona Cardinals, as well as several baseball spring training facilities, including the Los Angeles Dodgers and the Chicago White Sox in neighboring Glendale; the Cleveland Indians and Cincinnati Reds in nearby Goodyear; the San Diego Padres and Seattle Mariners in Peoria; and the Kansas City Royals and Texas Rangers in Surprise. Being centrally located in the west valley, with close proximity to many sporting events, year round entertainment, educational opportunities, shopping, dining and family activities, Avondale continues to grow and its population is expected to double in the next 5-7 years from its current population of around 76,000.
