Kingswood is a large single-family home residential community located on the west side of Clyde Morris Boulevard very close to where it intersects with Dunlawton Avenue. To the east of you is the Palmer College of Chiropractic and to the north is the City Center and City Offices. There is a lake here with a path you and your dog can go for long walks around and the City Sports Complex with plenty of room for the two of you to play.
One advantage of living here is your proximity to Dunlawton Avenue where you will find the majority of big-box retailers, supermarkets, pet stores, and other stores. The stores stretch along both sides of the road from the Halifax River to I-95.
Along with being the central shopping district and your way to the I-95 interchange, Dunlawton Avenue is also the only road with a bridge over to the beach.
Kingswood is a residential community of single-family homes which means you will be dealing with traffic during both morning and evening rush hours. How much depends heavily on where your home is located, but rest assured you will be dealing with at least some traffic. As a family neighborhood, the school year brings with it school buses in the morning and afternoon, picking up and dispersing kids on schedule every day.
During the rest of the day, you and your pooch are likely to come across any number of pedestrians in this family-friendly neighborhood. For quieter areas where a shy or nervous pooch can roam without worries, you may need to visit some neighboring regions or one of the nearby parks. This is also where you'll likely find some changes in terrain if your pooch is athletic or yearning for something more exciting. Kingswood itself is nothing but flat.
Living in Kingswood puts you just south of the city offices, the public library, the skate park, a lake with a walkway for you and your dog to walk around, and the City Center Sports Complex and Athletic Fields. You and your dog can walk and run about on the sports fields unless there happen to be games going on.
Within driving distance, there a several small parks where you and your dog can find enough room to stretch your legs and get in a little exercise. Among these are Willow Run Park, Buschman Park and the Margaret Buschman Parcel, and the All Children's Park with the Seemore Memorial Dog Park. Each has something to offer for you and your dog, but the dog park is the only off-leash park in town.
To the east at the end of Dunlawton Avenue is the beach. You can take your dog, drive on the sand, and hike for miles on the dunes, enjoying the fresh air and sunshine.
