Park Avenue is a stage navigated by the Avatar in Sonic Forces. It is a quaint downtown area that has since been besieged and destroyed by Dr. Eggman's robot armies, turning it into an all-out warzone. It shares its theme with City Heights, which is played by Modern Sonic.
Park Avenue is a town area (whose buildings are similar to those in City Escape) that is placed along an avenue. The city is built in a blocky hill landscape with layered soil in different shades of brown and green grass on top of the hills that favors Green Hill. There is also a long, orange bridge that goes over the city. Depicted in the background is a sea area with a green island landscape that is connected to Park Avenue by small bridge pathways.
After Dr. Eggman besieged Park Avenue, everything that is in it has been either been damaged or destroyed. Now, it is an annihilated city with Death Egg Robot sentinels roaming through the ruins while unknown forces are shooting at them. In addition, many of the buildings are on fire and meteorites are falling from the sky. Adding to the overall glum mood, the stage takes place during the sunset while the sky is being partially overcast by grey clouds.
The level begins with Amy requesting the Resistance to search for any survivors of the city's destruction. Espio replies, saying that they are too busy fighting off Eggman's forces to help. Knuckles suggests that the Avatar search in their place. Later on, Eggman's forces retreat, thanks to the aid of the Avatar.
Park Avenue is a fast-paced stage with destruction to avoid, along with an overwhelming number of enemies and obstacles, including spikes. The stage also has Wisp Capsules for the Avatar's Wispon to use. However, some Wisp Capsules will be empty, transparent and cannot be interacted with until after the player encounters the Wisp they contain.
There are a number pathways in the stage to choose, whether if the player wants to go along a higher route or a lower route. Standard objects in Park Avenue include Springs, Ramps, Boosters, Dash Rings, and Red Star Rings.
