Ridgeview is a small fourplex community located at the corner of South Brevard Avenue and the 4th Street. The individual fourplexes are packed close together with a small amount of grass around them, but it's barely enough for your dog to get in a quick pit stop. There isn't any room for them to run around or get any real exercise. For that, you will have to walk or drive to the beach which is only ten minutes away!
One of the advantages of living here is that you are only a few minutes from the Minuteman Causeway where you will find the city offices, police and fire departments, and two grocery stores. If you need more shopping options than what's provided here, it's a short drive to the north where you will find the West Cocoa Beach Causeway and the central shopping district in town. You can find everything your family needs, including food for your pooch.
Living on South Brevard Avenue means dealing with a significant amount of traffic during the day. It starts before the morning rush hour and continues long after the evening rush hour has come to an end. The good news is that South Brevard has sidewalks running along both sides that you and your dog can use when you need to go for long walks together. Be sure you keep your dog on a leash and carry bags with you to clean up any messes your pup leaves on the sidewalks.
The area has a standard width sidewalk on marginally flat terrain. If you want a much wider walking path, you will find one on the east side of South Atlantic Avenue where you and your pooch can enjoy hiking for as many miles as you wish. The path runs through the entire city and makes a great place to take your pooch walking.
If you walk west on South 4th Street, you can be at the Ramp Road Park in a little over five minutes. This park has a couple of playgrounds for the kids, a boat ramp for canoes and kayaks, and acres of grass for the two of you to play on and get in your daily exercise. Be sure you keep your dog on a leash and clean up after them to maintain the park's cleanliness!
Alternatively, you can follow the sidewalks to the beach. The beaches in this region are open to dogs during specific hours of the day. All dogs must be on a leash when on the sandy areas and you must clean up after them. There are pet waste disposal bins at each public beach parking lot, so you'll want to ensure that you use them to avoid facing a fine. The dog-friendly hours will do wonders for keeping both you and your pup out of the heat of the midday sun.
