Lynne Gardens is more woods than houses, but those few houses that are in the neighborhood are large luxury homes with yards that are ideal for raising a family and playing with the family dog. The homes sit on Bianca Road and Lin Gina Trail between US-1 and 28th Street. There is also a large patch of woods to the south of the homes and a few more small parcels scattered around the area.
Shopping is not much of an issue, since you can walk to Edgewater Commons, a small shopping center anchored by a Publix Supermarket and a True Value. You should be able to find food for everyone in your family, including the four-legged one with a tail that never stops wagging. The nearest pet supply stores are a few minutes north in New Smyrna Beach, where there are several of them within a very short distance of each other for your shopping convenience.
Despite the proximity of US-1 and several large residential areas, Lynne Gardens tends to be a tranquil place to live. 28th Street is a cul-de-sac, restricting traffic to residents and the mail carrier. During the school year, you will have to contend with the buses running around picking up kids along the way.
At the other end of the neighborhood, after your hike through all the trees, is Roberts Road. This road tends to be a lot busier as it handles the traffic coming from several residential areas to the west heading to US-1. The busiest times of day are the morning and evening rush hours as everyone heads to and from work, and, of course, more of those big yellow school buses running around. Roberts Road does have sidewalks the two of you can use for your walks if you make it this far south, so you can benefit from these flat, paved roads to keep you safe out of traffic's way.
Most of the areas in and around Lynne Gardens are covered in trees, especially the area to the south. Like most spots of woods in the region, there are trails you and your dog can follow. In this case, they should take you from your home down to Roberts Road. The woods continue on the south side of Roberts past the Indian River Elementary School and are filled with trails for the two of you to venture along.
Edgewater Park sits at the corner of 28th and Guava Drive. It's a big park with multiple softball fields, wide open areas of grass, tennis courts, a playground for the kids, and racquetball courts. The most important thing about this park is that there is tons of wide-open space for you and your dog to run around on. Keep in mind this is a city park and your dog must be on a leash at all times.
