Foxboro is a densely packed community of single-family homes close to where South Nova Road crosses Dunlawton Avenue. Many of the homes here were built during the housing boom in the 1980s and 1990s. Today, this is still a very well-kept neighborhood with modest homes on large lots.
Living here puts you close to the many shops including a Publix grocery store where you can pick up food for everyone in your family, even your four-legged friend! Along with this, there are plenty of places for everyone to grab a bite to eat, including a wide selection of chain restaurants.
There are few small parks within driving distance for you and your pooch to discover along with the beach and the Spruce Creek Preserve. Both of these offer the two of you plenty of room to go for long hikes together in the Florida sunshine and fresh air.
This is a densely packed residential area that offers sidewalks for you and your dog to use for your daily walks. Traffic here is generally quiet during the course of the day, but during morning and evening rush hours, it tends to be bustling and not the best time for you to be out walking with your four-legged friend.
Along with this, you must also deal with the school buses running through daily and the many kids walking up and down the streets. If you must take your pup for walks during these times of the day, be sure you use a short leash that gives you plenty of control.
As for the walking terrain, it's pretty flat and the only way you are going to get in enough exercise to build muscles and stamina is to walks as many blocks as you can and then keep adding to them.
Unfortunately, there isn't much here in the way of green space for you and your dog to make use of. If you want to take your pup for walks where there are trails and forests, it's a short drive to Rose Bay and the northernmost tip of the Doris Leeper Spruce Creek Preserve. This 1,600-acre nature preserve offers miles of trails to hike along, including some that will take you all the way to New Smyrna Beach if you and your dog are up to the 6-mile round trip.
Two minutes to the south is the only dog park in town. The Seemore Memorial Dog Park is divided into separate sections to ensure pups of all sizes can play together without anyone getting trampled or having their ankles bitten. Each section has a watering station and plenty of shady benches for you to sit on while your pup gets out and plays with the other dogs in the park.
