Home to Florida Healthcare and numerous medical offices, Brickle is also home to several duplexes and fronts on Dunlawton Avenue. For those who live here, there is a large wooded area to the south and vast field of grass to the north. Both areas give you and your pooch somewhere to walk and play that isn't paved.
Living right behind the medical buildings also puts you within five minutes of Park Place Plaza at the intersection of Dunlawton and South Nova Road. Here, you will find a Publix supermarket and Pet Supermarket where you can go grocery shopping for your dog. There are many other stores and restaurants here, but if you head east on Dunlawton, there are many more places to shop and eat.
Beyond the woods, the beach is only a few minutes to the east and there are several parks and nature preserves for you, your family, and your dog to explore within a short driving distance.
Although the townhomes are actually on Oak Street, with Dunlawton Avenue at the end of the road, you should expect to deal with a lot of traffic during the day. Many people use Oak Street as a shortcut from Dunlawton over to Spruce Creek Road. The worst time of day is rush hour, but Dunlawton Avenue never seems to slow down from early in the morning until late into the night
There are wide paved paths along Dunlawton you and your dog can use for your daily walks. However, if your dog isn't used to the noise from the constant passing of traffic, it could cause stress that could lead to uncharacteristic behavior. Alternatively, you can use the sidewalk running along Spruce Creek Road for your walks. While there is still a reasonable amount of traffic here, it isn't as heavy and is less likely to cause your dog to become stressed, making for a more enjoyable walk.
There is the large wooded area to the south and the field to the north. You and your dog can also walk to Buschman Park and the Margaret Buschman Parcel. This is the perfect place to bring the whole family. There is a playground for the kids, a shady pavilion for picnics, and a large lake with a walking trail around it for you and your dog to enjoy. There is a fishing pier jutting out into the lake with a pavilion at the end of it. Just to make sure you don't become bored, there are also nature trails running through the woods to enjoy.
If you're looking for a place to take your dogs out before the day truly starts, the beach is an ideal locale. You can drive out onto the sand and park your car before taking off with your dog and hiking as far as you can handle. It's a great way to spend some time together.
