If you take West King Road west out of the central part of town and past the I-95 interchange, you will arrive at the Fern Meadows subdivision. Fern Meadows is a large, single developer community surrounding three lakes close to the intersection with SR-524. Living this far out of town means not having to deal with a lot of traffic or noise. While a major roadway is at your front door, this far out, there is significantly less traffic to deal with.
However, having a house in Fern Meadows doesn't mean you have to drive forever to find essential amenities like grocery stores, gas stations, or a place to buy supplies for your pooch. Whether you take West King Road into town or head up SR-524 to the Publix and Walmart Supercenter, virtually every essential item your family needs is available no more than twent minutes away from your home. It's a small price to pay for a little peace and quiet.
With only one road in and out of Fern Meadows and the roads inside forming two square loops, the only time you are likely to see much traffic is during rush hours as people head to and from work. Like many of the newer subdivisions, there are sidewalks on both sides of the streets with grass berms to separate you from the traffic. Even with the sidewalks, you may still want to avoid the busy times of day unless your pup is used to the noise and smell.
While there is no real reason for the two of you to walk along West King Street, if you find that you need to, there aren't any sidewalks. However, the grass berms along both sides are very wide with plenty of room for you and your dog to roam along. Be sure you keep your pup on a short leash and pay close attention to the traffic that passes.
Fern Meadows has a small community park with a walking trail going around a tiny copse of woods and a single tennis court. For any other green space to play or hike in, you and your pooch are in for a car ride. Since you're already in the car, why not take the trip out to the Tosohatchee Wildlife Management Area? There, you'll find parking and access to the Florida Trail which has been designated as a National Scenic Trail that is somewhere around 1,300 miles long.
Of course, if your dog likes running around without being held back by a leash, the Fay Lake Wilderness Park and Off-Leash Dog Park are only fifteen minutes to the north. This park offers the largest fenced-in zones in the area with plenty of room for the dogs to run around, burning off plenty of energy and calories while you relax in the shade.
