Pine Breeze Acres is a large residential area close to Clearlake Road and north of King Street. The homes are single-family houses and townhomes with large shady yards. The yards make the perfect place to raise a family dog! To the west and on the other side of Palm Avenue is an area of woods with trails that you and your dog can explore.
One of the many benefits to living in this region is that you are close to just about anything you are likely to need. There are several local grocery stores and, to the north, there is the Walmart Supercenter where you can find almost anything the average family needs.
The local dog park is only five minutes from your home and you can be at one of the nearby beaches in under half an hour. Keep in mind that Cape Canaveral does not allow dogs on the coastal areas, but Cocoa Beach does!
Pine Breeze Acres is primarily a working-class community with narrow streets and no sidewalks for the two of you to make use of. The streets tend to be busy during the usual rush hours in the morning and evening. As a family neighborhood, during the school year, there are plenty of big yellow buses running up and down the streets to add to the congestion, especially in the morning.
With no sidewalks, you and your pooch are relegated to hiking along the roads, which means you need to take extra precautions such as wearing light-colored clothing to help motorists see you. Given the amount of traffic in the mornings and the high afternoon temperatures, the best time of day for the two of you to get outside and log some miles together is before the rest of the world starts waking up and the sun starts to crank up the heat.
There is one large empty lot on the corner of Bay and School Streets that gets used by the locals for any number of things, including taking their dogs for a walk. On the west side of Palm Street, there is a modest area of woods with trails running through them for you and your dog to wander around on. However, beyond this, you have no choice but to drive to the nearest open green space.
The best place to take your dog for a little off-leash exercise is to the south on Pluckebaum Road. The Barks and Recreation dog park is the only one in this part of town and is part of a much larger green space with a lake in the middle of it. You can take your dog for walks around the water and then let them run around in the appropriate fenced zone. There are water fountains for thirsty pups and plenty of shade to enjoy.
