Red Bug Lake Road and Winding Ridge Road peels off of Semoran Boulevard and heads due east through a number of residential neighborhoods on its way to the Oviedo Mall and the Central Florida Greenway. The road also runs just north of Lake Howell, one of the larger lakes in Casselberry.
For those who live along this bustling road, there is plenty of shopping at either end with Semoran Boulevard to the west and Tuscawilla Road to the east. There are shopping centers at both ends with stores like Walmart and Hobby Lobby. From grocery stores to pet supply stores, you should be able to find everything you need at either end of the street.
There are multiple parks along both sides of the road where you and your dog can find plenty of room to run around and play. If you want an off-leash dog park, the Pawmosa Dog Park is just 12 minutes away on Plumosa Avenue.
Red Bug Lake Road, or Winding Ridge Road, is a bustling east-west road running between Semoran Boulevard and Tuscawilla Road. Traffic starts long before rush hour and never seems to slow down until late at night. No matter which of the neighborhoods feeding out onto this road you live in, you can expect to see a lot of traffic. Like most residential neighborhoods, during the school year, you should also expect to see plenty of yellow school buses running in the mornings and afternoons.
While walking your dog through your neighborhood, you should be prepared for the onslaught of younger kids who all want to run up and say hi. Even the most even-tempered of pups can become stressed if too many kids come running up! Use a short leash to keep your pooch under control and a firm, but gentle voice to keep the kids in line.
There are several small parks in the area where you and your dog should be able to find enough room to run around and play. Wirz Park on Mark David Boulevard offers softball fields, a public pool, and the Casselberry Greenway Trail that runs around an expanse of woods that you and your dog can use for your daily exercise.
At the Red Bug Lake Park, there are soccer fields, tennis courts, a kids playground, and lots of grass. The only thing you have to do is clean up after your pup and watch out for any games going on.
There are several dog parks in town where you can let your dog run around off-leash. The nearest is Pawmosa to the north on Plumosa Avenue. The park is split in two with sections for large and small pups with watering stations and plenty of benches for you to relax on while your pooch goes out and has fun.
