The Port Orange Business Park is exactly as described: a small area of land between Oak Place and Spruce Creek Road with several small commercial businesses. While there might not be any residences within the business park, Spruce Creek Road is home to a number of residential communities.
Whether you work here or live nearby, you are close to Dunlawton Avenue, the main east-west highway running through Port Orange. Both sides of this road on the mainland side are lined with a wide range of big-box retailers, small mom and pop stores, shopping centers, and pet supply stores where you can find everything your dog needs from food to flea treatments.
You are also within walking distance of the Margaret Buschman Parcel and Buschman Park. These two areas combine to create a large area of woods and water features for you and your dog to stretch your legs.
Like any other business park, the Port Orange Business Park tends to have a lot of traffic during the day between customers and trucks. However, unlike many business parks, the developers here put in plenty of grassy areas where your dog can stretch their legs and take a quick pit stop. Nearby Spruce Creek Road also tends to be quite busy during the day with both the business park and numerous residential areas running along both sides.
Fortunately, there is a broad sidewalk running down the east side of Spruce Creek Road for you and your dog to use. The sidewalk runs from Dunlawton Avenue to the north all the way south past several greenways before coming to an end at Commonwealth Boulevard. The path is kept separate from Spruce Creek by a small canal or creek from start to finish and cuts through both the park and parcel, splitting them almost in the middle.
The one unusual thing about the Port Orange Business Park is the sheer amount of green space nearby. Between Spruce Creek Road and the business park itself, there is a wide band of trees, two lakes, and lots of grass for the two of you to use on lunch breaks or when your pup needs to go potty. As you go further south on Spruce Creek, your walk will take you to the Margaret Buschman Parcel first and then to Buschman Park.
These two areas combine to create a vast natural space where your entire family can have a great time. There is a large lake in the middle with a nice wide walkway going around it to hike on. There is also a fishing pier out over the lake with a pavilion at the end of it. You can fish from the dock, have a family picnic in the pavilion, or better yet, do both!
