Reedy Creek Acres is a narrow section of family homes set deep in the trees on Boggs Ford Road. The houses here are large and luxurious, sitting on huge lots. The only thing that could take away from the tranquility of the location is Interstate 95 which is only one block to the west. You can hear the steady drone of the never-ending traffic that flows along this highway.
Shopping is only three minutes from your home as the I-95 interchange is home to several shopping centers where you can find a Target, a Publix Supermarket, and numerous other stores. As you go east on Dunlawton Avenue, you will discover several more shopping centers to choose from.
There are several parks, nature preserves, and the beach all within fifteen to twenty-minutes from your home. This should give you and your dog plenty of choices when looking for places to walk!
The entire community of Reedy Creek Acres sits along Boggs Ford Road. To make taking your dog for walks a little easier, there are sidewalks along both sides of the street along with plenty of shade trees. Even with sidewalks, you'll need to keep an eye on what time of day you go for your walks. Like any other residential community, there are morning and rush hours to deal with and school buses on top of that.
Once you have that schedule down, it's not hard to plan your walks around the passing traffic. However, this neighborhood has the capacity to have quite a bit of pedestrian traffic which should be worth keeping in mind if your pooch is not the most social. Other nearby neighborhoods may provide respite from any noisy children or families that may give your pup a fright. Cater your strolls to your comfort level and take advantage of the nearby parks!
If you take South Williamson Boulevard on the other side of the interstate, you can be at the Doris Leeper Spruce Creek Preserve in less than 20 minutes. The preserve covers over 1,600 acres of forests and wetlands. There are miles of trails for the two of you to hike on and a 15-foot tall observation tower that looks out over the swamps. If you and your dog are up for it, you can hike all the way to New Smyrna Beach and back as it's only a six-mile round trip!
Port Orange only has one fenced-in dog park, the Seemore Memorial Dog Park. Located next to the All Children's Park, Seemore is encompasses an acre with three fenced-in sections, including one that is just for pups with special needs. Each of the sections has a watering station for the dogs, plenty of waste bags, and lots of shady benches for you to relax on while your dog goes off and plays.
