Corporate Park Port Orange is home to the Palmer College of Chiropractic accessed via Dunlawton Avenue and Lochte Way. While no one lives at the college, there are several residential communities nearby including Pierpoint Apartments immediately to the east. These communities offer plenty of room for you and your dog to go out for your daily walks and the City Center is next door! Here, you will find a lake complete with walking trail and the City Center Athletic Fields.
For shopping, you are located on Dunlawton Avenue, the main highway running from I-95 to the beach and where you will find the vast majority of retail stores, supermarkets, pet supply stores, and great places to take your family out for a meal. From here, the beach is only ten minutes to the east and the local dog park is ten minutes to the south. All of this combines to make this area the perfect place to live and raise your family!
Being this close to Dunlawton Avenue, a college, and the City Center, you should expect traffic to remain steady from early in the morning until late into the evening. Along with this, you can expect rush hours to create even more traffic! Unless your dog is used to this hustle and bustle, you should stick to walking outside of rush hours and stay away from Dunlawton. Heavy traffic produces a lot of noise. It can take a long time for your dog to get used to it.
One thing you can do to help is to keep your dog on a short walking leash. Doing so will help keep them under control while at the same creating a sense of security for your dog. While walking in the residential communities, continue using the same leash as it will help you maintain control when kids come running up to say hi!
You might not think a "corporate park" would have much in the way of green space for you and your dog to walk, but not only does the college here have a vast expanse of grass with a lake and walking trail, but you are very close to the City Center! Here, you and your pup can walk on the path around the lake or go north to the City Center Sports Complex and Athletic Fields. There is plenty of room to run around with your dog here unless there are games going on!
If you hop on Dunlawton Avenue and head east over the Halifax River, your trip will end when you find yourself staring at the Atlantic coast through your windshield. Find a good spot to park, leave the windows cracked, and the doors locked. Then you and your dog can go for walks in either direction enjoying the beautiful ocean breezes, the endless sunshine, and the warm water!
