Bayridge is a small community of large luxurious homes just off Hensel Road and sitting close to Spruce Creek High School. The houses here have big yards with lots of shade trees, giving you a sense of privacy that typically only comes with living out in the country. Yet, despite this feeling, the area is not far from the central shopping district that spans the entire length of Dunlawton Avenue.
Along this avenue, you will find stores like Walmart, Publix, Home Depot, and pet supply stores to keep that special furry family member well-fed. Dunlawton is only about five minutes from your doorstep and is the perfect place to find just about everything you could possibly need, including dog food and treats.
The one thing missing is much in the way of parks and green spaces nearby for the two of you to enjoy. But there are several within easy driving distance, including the beaches along the Atlantic coast.
The ground in Bayridge is quite flat and shady with most of the yards having plenty of trees to help keep you cooled down. Bayridge Lane runs through the community and, while you may not see a lot of local traffic, even during rush hours, those living in nearby communities must also use the same road to access Hensel Road which can be used to commute to and from the stores or work.
Keep in mind that there aren't any sidewalks in the community, so taking your dog means walking along the roads. This can be dangerous if you choose to walk during rush hours or when the local school buses are running. As always, when walking your dog in a residential area, you should try to avoid the peak traffic times as this will make your walks far less stressful. Early mornings before rush hour are the best times of day to go for your walks.
The one thing missing in the nearby community seems to be anything in the way of green spaces for you and your dog to enjoy. Thankfully, you are only a five-minute drive from the Seemore Memorial Dog Park, the only off-leash dog park in town. Here, the one-acre space is divided into separate sections to keep the big dogs and little ones separate and safe.
Right next door to the dog park is the All Children's Park where your kids can play on the pirate-themed playground. There are sports fields where the two of you can run around and play, as long as you're sure you keep your dog on a leash at all times.
Then there is the beach to the east where you and your pooch can spend countless hours out in the sunshine and fresh air, hiking the many miles of beautiful sand and going swimming in the warm waves.
