The area known as Chittendon and Mitchell straddles US-1 at the intersection with Brunson Boulevard and goes all the way to the Indian River. The western half of the neighborhood is given over to commercial and retail businesses. However, on the east side of Forrest Avenue is the residential area of single-family homes along Mitchell Street. With so many businesses next door, this area of town tends not only to see a lot of traffic, but an increased level of crime.
When you need supplies for your dog, there is a pet supply store on the corner of Center Street and Ridgeway Avenue, which is only a two-minute drive south of your location. MYDOGSWAG is a pet store dedicated to all things dog. Here, you can find everything your pooch could possibly need from food to toys. When the rest of your family needs food and supplies, there are several grocery stores, including a Walmart Supercenter, within a ten-minute drive.
The terrain in Chittendon and Mitchell varies from a residential area with large yards and plenty of shade trees to pavement and commercial retail businesses, including a DIY storage center and a small business strip mall. The land itself here is mostly flat. In fact, you might be hard pressed to see anything in the way of elevation changes.
If you live along Mitchell Street, you have sidewalks on both sides of the road for you and your dog to wander along. While the roads, including US-1 to the west, are bustling during the day, you can take your walks east to the sidewalk running along the west side of Indian River Road. The sidewalk runs for miles in both directions and offers a spectacular view of the water. The paved path is wide and well-kept, making it a safe place for you and your pup to take your daily walks.
While there isn't anything in the way of parks close enough for you and your dog to walk to, on the east side of Indian River Road, there is a wide strip of grass that forms part of the riverbank. Like the sidewalks on the other side of the road, you and your dog can enjoy hiking for miles in either direction. However, unlike the pavement, the grass is much gentler on your pooch's paws and makes for a much nicer walk.
The nearest parks are Taylor, Cocoa Riverfront, and Lee Wenner, all of which are connected and sit on the south side of the causeway. These three connected parks have playground, a range of activities and events and a large multi lane public boat ramp. By far, the most important thing about these three parks is that they offer you and your pup a place to run around and play!
