The Forest Oaks neighborhood has some flat areas and some slight inclines, and walking in this neighborhood necessitates negotiating some sloping terrains, providing a bit of a workout. There are some sidewalks in this neighborhood to separate you and your pup from traffic, but some areas will require walking on the roadway, be prepared and aware of local traffic. The homes and yards in this neighborhood are well landscaped with lots of lawns, gardens, and natural trees from the surrounding, undeveloped areas, giving this residential community a very rural feel. There are lots of areas to get shade while walking on a hot summer day and enjoy natural, local flora and fauna right on your doorstep. Your dog will be quite interested in the local wildlife, so be sure to keep him leashed, or have good off-leash recall in case he decides to join some forest friends.

The Forest Oak area has plenty of green space adjacent to the community, and opportunities to enjoy natural undeveloped land and trails with large trees and open areas. The community itself features plenty of greenery with large yards and boulevards alongside roadways for walking. 

There is a community with a lake directly to the south of Forest Oaks, with a walking trail surrounding it that provides a more maintained walking experience, with a manicured park setting, if that is more your style. Your dog can cool off in the lake if he is a swimmer, but be sure to take your own drinking water, as lakes can contain parasites and bacteria you may prefer your dog not to ingest. 

Nearby Jacksonville also features a dedicated dog park with a fenced off-leash area and separate enclosures for large and small dogs, as well as a combined area that allows for safe off-leash activity between neighborhood dogs and can be accessed with a 10-minute drive by Forest Oaks residents.
