"Conveniently Close to Mile Square Park"

Thistle Avenue is located off Brookhurst Avenue in Fountain Valley, across the street from Mile Square Park. It’s an entry street into a tract of large family homes built in the late 1970s. The homes are all well-kept and landscaped. Residents of Thistle Avenue have easy access to all the recreational activities available at the park, including golf, basketball, soccer, tennis and softball. There are also two fishing lakes and an archery range in the park, as well as a Boys & Girls Club and a Community Center located in the park. The 4-mile perimeter of the park is popular for runners, bikers and joggers.

There are several stores located near Thistle Avenue, including a Sam’s Club warehouse store. Many of the residents of the area are Asian and there are several Asian restaurants nearby. The schools in the area are good and the area is safe. However, because of its large unlighted interior Mile Square Park is not safe at night.

Each year the tract where Thistle Avenue is located puts on a lavish display of holiday lights that attracts visitors from far and wide. This is evident of the type of community spirit that is found in this neighborhood. The traffic is so heavy that barricades are erected and visitors must enter the tract on foot.
