The homes in the Cocoa Isles Country Club area are surrounded by the Banana River and the nearby golf course. The entire area sits on an "island" in the Banana River, connected to the rest of Cocoa Beach by the Minuteman Causeway. Cocoa Isles Country Club is best described as an upper-middle-class neighborhood where most of the homes have a swimming pool in the backyard and those who live on the water have private docks for fishing or securing a boat.
While being at the west end of the causeway out on in the river might sound like you are miles from anywhere, you are not. The shops, bars, and restaurants along the causeway are only minutes away by car. Here, you can find most of the items you need and there is a Publix Supermarket ten minutes to the north where you should be able to find food for everyone in your family, including the one on four legs.
Out here in the Cocoa Isles Country Club community, the only traffic you have to deal with is from coming and going residents. There is a separate road to the Country Club and golf course. Despite living next to a golf course in a "golfing community," most of the residents still get up in the morning and head off for the daily grind before returning in the evening for dinner, TV, and bed. With no sidewalks for you and your pup to walk on, you have no choice but to hike along the street. Luckily, the terrain is mostly flat, making it easy to make your way from point A to point B.
The best time of day to go walking with your dog is before the morning rush hour begins. There will be far less traffic to worry about which will make it much safer for the two of you to take your daily strolls.
Despite the vastness of the grassy areas along the golf course and their appeal, your dog is not welcome on them. While there are no immediate parks in the vicinity, you can venture a little further afield to find an escape that should be good enough for you and your pup to enjoy!
The best thing you can do for your dog is to take them to the Cocoa Beach Dog Park on A1A. The park covers almost an acre and offers fenced-in areas for large and small breeds with water hoses to keep them hydrated. There is plenty of shade and lots of plastic chairs for you to sit on while your dog runs off and plays with the other pups without the restraint of being on a leash. Remember to clean up after your pooch when you're enjoying this local greenway! Keeping it clean will ensure that others can enjoy it too.
