Depot Plaza is a small area of duplexes and townhouses squeezed between the FEC railroad tracks and Washington Avenue. There are fences behind the units, but they are there more to separate the different homes. Nearby is the railroad repair depot and, as you can imagine, you are going to deal with a fair amount of rail traffic in the region. This neighborhood is close to US-1, which is the main route running north-south through town.
Within less than ten minutes to the south is the nearest grocery store. At the Publix supermarket, you can stock your pantry and find an excellent selection of premium brand dog foods. There are two excellent pet supply stores nearby. Both should have everything you need for the furry member of your family, including food and toys! A few minutes to the north in the city center, there are several great places to eat, including Ryan's Pizza & Pub.
Depot Plaza sits on the eastern edge of a large residential area threaded with sidewalks running throughout. You'll find it nice to have paved pathways to walk on at times! As a large residential area and being this close to the road leading to US-1, morning and evening rush hours can be brutal. Exercise caution when venturing down these roadways during the busier hours of the day.
The terrain in the region is as flat as a pancake and has little to offer in the way of a challenge for your walks, but you can always use distance as a replacement. Living in Florida, there are several months of the year where you and your dog should avoid walking at the height of the day. The heat has a tendency to cause some harsh walking conditions for puppy pads, making it much easier to visit nearby parks to get nice, cool grass to walk on instead.
Along Railroad Avenue, there is a wide area of grass with a few trees that you and your dog enjoy, especially on hot days. In addition, if you go south on Washington Avenue and walk down the road, there is a large area of woods, trails, and lakes. The largest of the lakes has a paved walking trail running around it that the two of you can hike along.
If it’s a dog park you crave, then you're in luck. The Barks and Recreation dog park is only a five-minute drive to the west on Pluckebaum Road. The dog park sits next to a large lake and a vast area of woods and grass. The two of you can take long walks around the water before or after going inside the fenced-in dog park! The park itself is divided to provide safe areas for both large and small breeds with plenty of water and shade.
