Oakland Park is a carefully laid out community of luxury homes nestled between Spruce Creek Road to the west and the FEC railroad tracks to the east. This is a sprawling neighborhood with bigger-than-average yards and neatly kept sidewalks. Within the area, there are a couple of lakes and wooded areas. You and your pup should be able to find places to walk here.
You are also right next door to the All Children's Park and the Seemore Memorial Dog Park as well as the beach.
Living this far from the heart of town might make it seem as though you have to drive forever to find life's most essential amenities. However, a couple of miles to the north is a Winn-Dixie supermarket. Another 1.5 miles to the west is all the shopping you are ever likely to need, including places to pick up food and treats for your dog.
As might be expected of a luxury community, Oakland Parks is a well-kept neighborhood with plenty of sidewalks and grass berms for you and your dog to walk on. To make your walks even more comfortable, there are plenty of shade trees to hide from the sun's incessant glare. As for traffic, you should expect to see the usual amount during rush hour. Beyond this, you aren't likely to see much else to hamper your strolls.
Worth noting is that Oakland Park is a family neighborhood and you may encounter quite a few families out and about, including parents, children, teenagers, or even infants! If your pup is not one to stop and say hi to strangers, you may need to divert your walks to another, quieter area of town. Otherwise, opt for quieter times of the day like early morning or late evening to avoid any incidents. You're sure to find some great strolls in the area, otherwise.
Within the community, there are a couple of small lakes and areas of woods. You and your pup should be able to find trails that will lead down to the waterfront. However, just to the north on Central Park Avenue is the All Children's Park and, within its bounds, the Seemore Memorial Dog Park.
The All Children's Park is one of the most popular kids parks in town. It offers a pirate-themed playground, a splash pad that is open during the warmer months, woods with nature trails to hike on, and two huge softball fields to play on.The Seemore Memorial Dog Park covers an entire acre and is divided into three fenced-in areas. There is one for small breeds and puppies, one for large breeds, and one more that is just for dogs with special needs. No matter what type of dog you have, they're sure to find the perfect place to play in this all encompassing dog park.
