Skylake is a large residential community located alongside I-95 and at the end of Ford Boggs Road. Although the community does cover a vast area with a lake in the center of the eastern border, it is still a tranquil place to live. Because of the single road leading into the region, the amount of traffic is limited, making it a safe place for you to take your dog out for their daily walks.
You may live next to and have to deal with the noise of I-95, but you have to drive north on Ford Boggs Road to reach the interchange at Dunlawton Avenue. Speaking of Dunlawton Avenue, not only does this road offer access to the interstate, but it is also the main east-west road through town and the central shopping district in the city. It will even take you to the beach if you follow it to where the road ends along the coast.
Living out here, the homes here are abundant with heavily wooded yards and sidewalks running through the various parts of the community. To the south is Spruce Creek where some of the homes have docks leading through the woods and all the way to the water. Some have boats and others use their piers for fishing.
Within the community, traffic can be pretty heavy during the usual rush hours. The middle of the day tends to be relatively traffic-free and peaceful for you and your dog to go walking. The area has nice, flat terrain which makes walking fairly easy no matter what type of walker you are.
Because Skylake is a residential area, you should be prepared to deal with quite a few pedestrians in the neighborhood. Keep an eye out for any crowds and take alternate routes if your pup happens to be a bit skittish around strangers.
The eastern and northern borders of Skylake have areas of woods where you and your dog should be able to find trails along the Creekside to explore. All other areas of green space will require a short drive to reach.
The Seemore Memorial Dog Park is less than ten minutes to the west and is next door to the All Children's Park. The children's park offers a playground, picnic tables, plenty of shade to relax under, and a small splash park.
The Seemore Memorial Dog Park is unusual in that it offers a special section of the park that caters to pups with special needs. This may be optimal if your dog needs just a little bit of help to really get down and dirty. There are also other amenities in the park, including some areas to get water and a rinsing station to ensure that your pooch is nice and clean before heading home.
