Devonwood is a family-friendly neighborhood south of Taylor Road and on the west side of I-95. With larger homes and shady yards, this is a great place to raise your family, including the one whose tail never stops wagging. There's plenty of shade provided by a range of beautiful trees throughout, sidewalks for you and your dog to use, and a great "neighborhood" feel that makes you feel right at home.
While this is a quiet part of town, you can be at the center of the action and shopping all along Dunlawton Avenue to the north in less than ten minutes. Here, you will find the usual major stores like Walmart, Home Depot, Publix, and more. Finding food and treats for your dog is easy here, as is finding great places to eat for the whole family.
From your home in Devonwood, there are several small parks and a significant nature preserves nearby.
Devonwood is a lovely shady neighborhood of well-kept homes that make you feel comfortable taking your dog for walks around almost any time of the day. Thanks to the design of the streets here, the bulk of the traffic is limited to rush hours and school buses. Since these are regular times every day, it should be easy for you to plan your walks around them.
Because it is a fantastic place to raise a family, you can expect to see kids of all ages out playing. You are likely to encounter kids on bikes, skates, skateboards, or walking around together. The sidewalks may also be crowded with moms and strollers. All of this can be stressful for your dog! Reduce the stress by taking your walks in the early morning hours before the rest of the world comes alive. It's an incredible time of day to go for a walk in Florida as the sun's up but no one else is!
While there is an area of woods to the west, this is private property and the two of you should probably find somewhere else to go for your walks. Fortunately, if you go a few blocks south, your drive will take you to the only dog park in town. The Seemore Memorial Dog Park sits right next door to the All Children's Park. This is the ideal place for you to take the whole family.
Bring a picnic, sit in the shade of the pavilion for lunch, and then spend time together playing on the sports fields. Then you can give your dog the ultimate treat by taking him next door to the dog park itself. Choose the right fenced-in area for your dog based on size, unhook their leash, and go sit on the benches in the shade while they run off and play with the other dogs!
