AVONIA BEACH PARK is 3.6 acres located on the shores of beautiful Lake Erie (Steelhead capital of PA) at the place where Trout Run, a high-quality trout stream, empties into the lake. The beach attracts many fishermen and is a popular destination for viewing steelhead trout or some of the most beautiful sunsets in the world.
The property, located on the east side of Avonia Road, was purchased by the Township in 2006 with assisted funding from DCNR, PA Fish & Boat Commission, Coastal Zone Management, Lake Erie Region Conservancy and Sons of Lake Erie. The property was acquired to provide public access to the lake and stream for fishing. Master Site Plans have been developed to provide more parking, creating new site access, installing a wonderful viewing platform over Trout Run, handicapped-accessible fishing platform and walkway to the beach. The residence on the property is used for educational purposes with updates planned in the future to better accommodate more events.
Sunsets, fishing, strolling along the beachfront, watching steelhead trout running upstream, environmental and natural habitat experience - Avonia Beach Park offers it all for year-round enjoyment – The Gem on Lake Erie.
