The community of Pine Lake Ranch sits far out on the Martin Anderson Beachline Expressway and enjoys a rural setting in which the modest homes sit on large lots amongst the trees. Entry to the neighborhood is not from the expressway, but is instead on Friday Lane. Each of the houses enjoys a lot of privacy due to being set back off the road and, in many cases, protected by a screen of trees and brush.
While the central part of town is less than fifteen minutes to the southeast on West King Road, shopping for food and other essentials is available at the Walmart Supercenter less than ten minutes from your driveway on Clearlake Road. There are several places to buy food and supplies for your dog, including several farm and feed stores and dedicated pet stores like MYDOGSWAG off of Forrest Avenue and a Pet Supermarket across the causeway in Merritt Island.
With so few residences in Pine Lake Ranch, traffic never gets too busy. You will have a few vehicles on the road during rush hours in the morning and evening, but during most of the day, Friday Lane stays relatively traffic-free. You will have to deal with the traffic noise generated on the nearby highway, but you get used to it and it quiets down in the evening.
The terrain is mostly flat in this area, but there aren't any sidewalks for the two of you to use for your walks. While you might not see much in the way of traffic on Friday Lane, you and your pooch still need to pay close attention and use the wide grass berms that run along both sides of the street instead of walking on the pavement. Not only will this be easier on your dog's paws and joints, but it should keep you safely away from any traffic on the road.
Every yard in Pine Lake Ranch is a green space as the lots are measured in acreage, unlike in town where they are measured by the number of building lots on the city plat. Out here, the yards are enormous in comparison to the smaller lots that many live on in the city. However, even dogs can become bored when all they see every day is the same old yard!
To the west of your home is a vast area of grass, trees, and scrub where you and your dog will find that there are many trails already carved out for your use. The trails give you more room to roam than the streets and you are far less likely to run across anything in the way of vehicular traffic. If your dog is well-trained and responds immediately to your commands, you may find that once you get out in the woods, you can even get away with letting your dog walk off-leash.
