The Village Green Townhouses Condo can be found along Canal Road and across the FEC railroad tracks from Extreme Concrete Services. The entire area around the condo is made up of spots of dense woods with a variety of single and multi-family housing. The condo is one of several clustered together on this cul-de-sac which is a large parking area. Living this close to the railroad tracks and a cement plant means dealing with a significant amount of noise during the day.
When you need groceries or food for your four-legged buddy, there are several supermarkets within less than ten minutes of your home. These include a Winn-Dixie and a Sav-a-Lot. Along US-1 and South Ridgewood Avenue, there are several small businesses as well as local and chain restaurants for you and your family to dine in when no one in the family feels look cooking.
In front of the Village Green Townhouses Condo is a large unpaved parking lot serving all of the townhouses. In fact, the roads around the condo are all sand until you reach Oak Ridge Road. While this might seem strange, when you consider the lack of rainfall most of the year, this type of road doesn't present much of a problem.
This type of road surface is likely to be gentle on your pup's paws, but like paved roads, it can still reach temperatures hot enough to burn. With no sidewalks and lots of trees, you may want to avoid going for walks during the heat of the day. Rush hours also tend to put a lot of congestion on the roads, making walking your dog more of a challenge. Do yourself and your pup a favor and take your walks during the early morning when there is little to no traffic and the ambient temperature is more comfortable.
The Village Green Townhouses Condo is surrounded by small patches of woods that you and your pooch can wander around in out of the sun's glare. Finding a park where you and your dog are welcome can be challenging as there are only a few in town. The nearest one is less than a twenty-minute walk from your home. George R. Kennedy Memorial Park sits at the end of East Park Avenue and juts out into the river. The park offers multiple public boat launches, parking for vehicles with trailers, a walking trail, and a fair amount of grass.
You can walk south along the riverbank that offers a wide grassy berm. If you follow the water's edge, your journey will end at Menard-May Park. Here, you will find a lot more grass, parking, public restrooms, and plenty of grass. Your pup can walk down the small sandy area and go swimming in the Indian River North to cool down.
