Sandlewood Estates is a small single-family home community off of Bruner Road. Living here puts you close to Madeline Avenue and South Clyde Morris Boulevard. Clyde Morris Boulevard can be used to access the central shopping areas of South Daytona on Beville Road to the north of Port Orange on Dunlawton Avenue.
There are several parks and nature preserves in the area for you and your dog to make use of and the beach is only fifteen minutes away at the end of Dunlawton Avenue. There is a vast area of grass and trails to the west and south where you and your dog can run about and have fun together.
Along Dunlawton Avenue, you will find a selection of big box retailers, DIY superstores, a Walmart Supercenter, a Pet Supermarket, and Petco. Luckily, you don't have to go that far for basic groceries and supplies as there is a Walmart Neighborhood Market within walking distance.
Stillwood Court is a dead-end road which goes a long way towards helping to keep traffic to a minimum. There will, of course, be a certain amount of traffic during the morning and evening rush hours. The rest of the time, the area is tranquil and makes a great place to take your dog for walks.
Rather than sticking to walking on sidewalks, you should consider taking your walks into the fields next door. Here, you will find lots of manmade trails for the two of you to add into your walks. The land here is relatively flat, but walking on the sandy trails around the lake is a great way to add an extra challenge to your hikes.
Keep in mind that this is a family neighborhood, which means you and your pup are going to run into quite a few pedestrians. Be sure you use a short leash and work with any children that come up asking to pet your dog.
There are two vast fields to the west and south of your home, one of which has a large lake in it. These both make great places to go out and play or run about together. Over the years, people have created a number of trails and pathways through the fields. If you want an actual park, Reed Canal Park offers a vast area of grass to play on, woods with nature trails in the shade, and a small lake to walk around.
If you are up for a ten-minute drive to the east, your trip will take you to the beach. Here, in Port Orange, you can drive your car on the sand, so go ahead and find a place to park! From here, you and your dog can hike for as many miles as you can handle together. Don't forget to take a dip in the warm waves!
