Treetop sits alongside Spruce Creek Road, approximately 1.5 miles south of South Nova Road. It is a thoughtfully laid out community of large single-family homes, many of which feature swimming pools in their backyard. This is a very neatly kept neighborhood with trimmed lawns, plenty of shade trees, and larger than average lots.
Ten minutes to the west is the West Port Center where you can find anything you could possibly need, including clothing stores, an L.A. Fitness Center, and plenty of restaurants. If you turn right on Dunlawton, there is a Walmart Supercenter where you can stock up on both people and puppy food.
Both Spruce Creek Elementary and High Schools are on Taylor Road, helping to minimize the amount of time your kids have to spend on the school bus each day. There are green spaces nearby for you and your dog to go hiking in and you're only fifteen minutes from the beach.
As you might expect in a family neighborhood, there is going to be a certain amount of vehicular traffic, especially during rush hours. You and your dog must deal with this if you go out for your daily walks. The good news is that all the roads within the community and the surrounding ones have plenty of sidewalks to walk on with grassy berms for your pup.
School buses also tend to add to the amount of vehicular traffic and, with so many kids getting on and off the buses, you may want to consider not taking your dog out during these times. But, if you must take your dog out, you should use a short leash to ensure you can maintain better control. Many of the streets in the area also offer lots of shade to help keep the two of you cooler during the hotter parts of the day.
Within the community, there aren't any green spaces. But a ten-minute walk to the south on Spruce Creek Road takes the two of you to Seemore Memorial Park, which is the only dog park in town. The dog park covers an entire acre and has separate areas for large and small breeds. There are benches in the shade and water and rinse areas for the pups. It's a very popular park, so your pooch should be able to find friends to play with most times of the day.
On the east side of the FEC tracks is Rose Bay and the northernmost tip of the Doris Leeper Spruce Creek Preserve. The preserve ranges over 1,637 acres of swamp and forest through which thread a number of trails for you and your pup to hike along. If you are up for it, there is a six-mile hike to New Smyrna Beach and back.
