Welcome to Ava, Missouri “Treasure of the Ozarks”

Nestled here in the middle of Ozark Mountains, Ava is truly a treasure with forest, fields, and streams, friendly and kind-hearted residents, fascinating historical and cultural heritage, and diverse educational and employment opportunities.

Ava, the only incorporated city in Douglas County, offers a small town atmosphere with large town amenities. Ava is fortunate to be world headquarters of the Missouri Fox Trotting Horse Breed Association, which holds two annual shows drawing thousands to our community. Ava also partially surrounded by the Mark Twain National Forest, where we have a fall festival each year celebrating the beauty of the Ozark Mountains.

Our business community is diverse, with many locally-owned and -operated businesses, as well as big name retailers. The City of Ava welcomes new businesses and works well with potential business operators and entrepreneurs. Ava also has many recreational opportunities. Ava Water Park offers residents supervised water fun, as well as certified swim lessons and competitive swim team programs. The park has a beautiful walking trail, tennis courts, and pavilions for picnics. Ava prides itself in having dozens of community-based organizations from which to choose and be an active participant.

Ava’s biggest treasure is its quality of life. It offers a place to live, work, play, and raise a family, in a small town atmosphere offering many amenities, with people who really care.
