While the Eastport Business Park may not have any houses in it, the park is surrounded by residential communities on both sides of the FEC tracks. Living next to the business park puts you close to a gym and an impact training center. In fact, most of the area on the west side of Spruce Creek Road is given to several business parks.
There are parks nearby for you and your dog to walk in and a lake to fish in or let your dog go for a cool dip in during the heat of the day. For those who love the surf and sand, the beach is no more than ten minutes away on a good day. Be sure you take advantage of the cool waves as often as you can. It's the perfect place for you and your dog to stretch your legs in the fresh air and sunshine.
Living along Spruce Creek Road means you will have to get used to the noise and traffic generated not only by the many commercial businesses across the street but the rest of the traffic as well. Spruce Creek is a bustling thoroughfare that stays busy from the early morning rush hour until well past the evening one.
Within the residential communities themselves, there is less traffic, but you must still deal with rush hours and school buses. The best thing to do is to try to plan your walks during other parts of the day, if possible. If, for some reason, you can't, be sure to keep your dog on a tight leash for their protection. The land is flat here, but you can easily substitute distance for an uphill challenge and take your walks in the nearby parks where there is plenty of grass for the two of you to walk and play on.
Within the confines of the Eastport Business Park, there are large areas of grass for the two of you to play on and three different lakes. These can come in handy for quick walks and playtime. But to the south is the Margaret Buschman Parcel, which offers you and your pooch walking trails that go around the lake and into the woods. The parcel makes an excellent place for you and your dog to go for walks in the cool shade.
Of course, if you want real exercise, the beach is only a few minutes to the east. The best time of day for your hikes is early in the morning before it fills up with cars, beachgoers, and surfers. Don't forget to go for a nice refreshing dip in the Atlantic when the weather is hot enough any day from late February until October or later!
