The community of Broken Bow Estates incorporates more than a neighborhood of large luxury homes. It is also home to the Spruce Creek Elementary School, large open field, and a large area of woods. The fields are off-limits, but people have created a selection of trails for you and your dog to explore. In the southeast corner of the area are several small lakes surrounded by trees for the two of you to visit.
Getting out of the community to those amenities you need the most such as grocery stores, department stores, and pet supply stores where you can buy your pup their favorite foods and treats is easy. A short trip north on Hensel Road to Taylor Road and then west to Dunlawton Avenue will take you to a vast array of big box stores, strip malls, and standalone stores. If you like to eat out, there are plenty of restaurants along the same road.
Broken Bow Estates is a luxury residential area filled with large homes sitting on vast yards in a very carefully maintained neighborhood. All the streets within the residential sector have sidewalks to walk on, but there aren't any shade trees to help keep the sun off your shoulders.
One of the things about living in an upscale community like this where the homes have such large yards is that it reduces the number of houses that can be built. In doing so, it also helps to reduce the amount of traffic you and your pup will be dealing with. However, you still have morning and evening rush hours to deal with. The only difference is that there is a much smaller number of cars here. Once rush hour has passed and the school buses are gone, you should be able to walk your pooch anywhere in the community without being bothered by traffic.
While the field next door might be fenced off to keep everyone out, the woods next to it have become a favorite place for dog walkers who want to get out of the sun for a few minutes. If you prefer to take your dog to a park, you're in luck. Five minutes to the west are the All Children's Park and the Seemore Memorial Dog Park.
The dog park is one of the more unusual parks in that there is a small section just for dogs with special needs. All sections have a watering station, poop bags, trash receptacles, and shady places for you to sit while your dog plays.
The children's park offers a pirate-themed playground for the younger kids and softball fields for the older ones. There are tennis courts, a small lake, and right across the street is Neighbors General Store where their homemade ice cream is as good today as has been for decades.
