Avon Isle Park Pavilion is a 50 feet (15 m) by 70 feet (21 m) sandstone dance pavilion located on Detroit Road, Avon, Ohio. It operated from the 1920s until the 1970s hosting a variety of civic and social events.[2] It was also available for private events. During the early years, the larger cities nearby; Lorain and Elyria prohibited dancing on Sunday. This allowed Avon Isle to host big name entertainers like Guy Lombardo.[2]

Avon Isle was listed on the National Register of Historic Places in 2010.[1]
