Bayview Homesites is a community of single-family homes, the majority of which are some form of manufactured. Those that live here work hard to keep it safe and clean. The only real thing missing is a direct view of the water. Some of the houses line the west bank of Spruce Creek that feeds into Rose Bay.
Living here puts you close to Dunlawton Avenue, which is the main east-west road through town and home to most of the shopping. Along both sides are stores like Publix, Walmart, and Home Depot, along with many others in strip malls. Here, you and your family will also find the majority of the best restaurants in town.
From here, you are within a short drive of the town dog park, the beach, and several great parks, preserves, and wildlife management areas, all of which make great places to take your dog for long hikes in the glorious Florida sunshine.
As a family residential area, Bayview Homesites sees its share of traffic during the usual rush hours. Then there are, of course, the school buses coming through twice a day during the school year. Spruce Creek Road to the west is a busy road you can take to the north where it intersects with both South Nova Road and Dunlawton Avenue.
The ground all around the neighborhood is quite flat with the exception of the creek and its banks to the east. The one thing missing here is sidewalks for the two of you to use. Instead, you will be walking on the roads and need to take extra care. Keep in mind that there are likely to be kids of all ages playing in their yards and on the streets at any time during the day and you should keep your pup on a tight leash to protect them.
The nearest parks are only five minutes south at the intersection of Spruce Creek Road and Central Park Boulevard. For your family, there is the All Children's Park where your kids can enjoy endless hours of fun playing on the pirate-themed playground set. There are woods to walk in and a small lake to hike around. The park also features two large softball fields and several tennis courts, providing plenty of fun for the whole family!
Next door to the All Children's Park is the Seemore Memorial Dog Park, a one-acre dog park split into separate fenced-in areas for large and small breeds. Each section as a place for the dogs to get water, plenty of shade to play in, and several benches for you to relax on. Once playtime is over, there is a rinse station where you can rinse the dust off and cool your dog down at the same time before going home.
