Promenade Parke is a planned community on Pioneer Trail to the west of I-95. The houses here are what is often referred to as "cookie cutter" in that the developers used very few house designs. In fact, you can probably find your way to the bathroom without having to ask in most of the homes!
Living here puts you across Pioneer Trail from the Cypress Head Golf Club, but beyond this, there really isn't much in the way of amenities. However, this is one of the most common reasons given for buying a home out here, beyond the tranquility of the neighborhood.
Amenities such as grocery stores, bars, pet supply stores, and restaurants for you to take your family out for a meal are all available in town. Thankfully, the drive is typically no more than ten to fifteen minutes unless you plan to go over to the beachside where there is plenty more for both you and your dog to do.
The land here is a mix of flat residential lots, lakes, and small tracts of woods. Each of the streets within the neighborhood offer sidewalks on both sides for you and your dog to use for your daily strolls. While the flat land doesn't provide much in the way of challenge, there are several communities in the area you can build into your walks to add more distance.
Many of those who live out here have families and jobs. This means traffic during morning and evening rush hours and when the school buses are running. The easiest way to avoid this is to take your pooch out for walks at other times.
When walking your pup on the sidewalks within Promenade Parke, you should probably use a short leash as they allow for better control. You can also use the woods and lakes to add variety into your strolls. It will help keep them from being mundane!
Beyond the woods, lakes, and grassy areas around the community, there are several green spaces within easy driving distance of your home. To the west lies the South Tomoka Wildlife Management Area which is part of the 30,000 acres making up the Tiger Bay State Forest. Here, you and your dog can enjoy hiking miles of trails in the shade of the dense woods for hours on end. You might even catch a glimpse of some wildlife bounding across the trail ahead of you!
If you would like to give your pup a chance to run around without being on a leash, the New Smyrna Beach Dog Park is twelve minutes away. The park offers separate sections for large and small breeds. To help your dog remain hydrated, there are watering stations in each section along with shade trees. For the humans, there is a shady pavilion to relax under while your dog gets out there and plays with the other pooches!
