Eastern Casselberry covers everything from US 17-92 to the east. This area is filled with several lakes and numerous residential areas surrounding them. Housing ranges from single-family homes to multi-family units, many of which are set around the lakes. When you stop to think about the fact that Casselberry has become a suburb of Orlando, it is a little surprising how much open space there is in town for you and your dog to make good use of!
While there are small stores all over town, the majority of big-box retailers, small local stores, and supermarkets can be found along either US 17-92 or Semoran Boulevard. No matter where you live in Casselberry, you are never more than a few minutes' drive from the essentials you need to keep your family and your dog supplied with everything from food to toys. These two roads are also home to many of the best places to eat in town!
The terrain in this neighborhood varies from lakefront properties to urban blocks, depending on where you live. With so many lakes, there is a good chance of living near one. Some have walking trails around them and others have nothing but houses. As a suburb of Orlando, you can expect the morning and evening rush hours to be bustling with traffic. Roads like US 17-92 and Semoran Boulevard are busy from the early morning hours until very late at night.
Depending on which neighborhood you happen to live in, you may be lucky enough to have sidewalks to walk on. In those areas without them, you and your dog will be forced to walk on the roads which, given the amount of vehicular traffic in the area, can be hazardous. You will need to keep your eyes and ears open at all times to ensure both of you remain safe on your walks.
Some of the lakes offer walking trails running around them for you and your dog to use, while others are surrounded by homes and are only accessible to residents. Over on Secret Lake, there is Secret Lake Park containing tennis courts, softball fields, and a walking trail for you and your dog to enjoy. In fact, there are four lakes in the area, but the park sits between only two of them.
Along the southern and western edges of these lakes is the Casselberry Golf Course. You can't take your dog out walking on the course, but you can use the woods to the south to go for walks. You should find plenty of trails and room for the two of you to run around in.
To the north in Winter Springs is Spring Hammock Preserve, a large wildlife preserve with two parks, sports fields, a boardwalk, and plenty of hiking trails for you and your dog to enjoy.
