The area around South Clyde Morris Boulevard and Victoria Gardens Boulevard is not so much of a residential area as it is a mix of schools, family homes, and retail stores. The community is one block east of Dunlawton Avenue, the main east-west thoroughfare through town and home to the vast majority of large stores and restaurants in town.
Speaking of shopping, if you live in any of the residential areas nearby, you have a Walmart Supercenter for a neighbor where you can find almost anything you need from apples to stuffed animals and more! They carry most of the top brands of dog foods, plenty of treats and toys, and more for your pup.
Along with this, there is an elementary and high school in the neighborhood for your kids to attend. More importantly, no more than ten minutes to the east, you can be parked on the beach and ready to go for a walk with your dog.
No matter how you look at it, if you have a home around the South Clyde Morris-Victoria Gardens junction, you are living in a bustling part of town. Not only is Dunlawton a busy road during the day, but all of the streets around you are going to have a lot of traffic on them during rush hour as well.
With both the elementary and high school as neighbors, you are going to see a lot of school bus traffic during the school year. While it is possible for you to walk your dog during these times, it will be much easier for both of you to take your walks at non-peak traffic hours. While a couple of cars might not bother your dog, rush hour traffic might be too much to bear and may cause them to behave out of character. Using a short leash on your pup will help you maintain better control should something startle them.
The one major problem with living here is the lack of green spaces within walking distance of your home. The schools do have playing fields, but you and your dog are probably not supposed to be walking on them. If you take Taylor Road to Spruce Creek Road and head south, your trip will take you to the All Children's Park and right next door to it the Seemore Memorial Dog Park. The area offers playground equipment for your kids to play on, shade, and a pavilion for your family to picnic under.
The Seemore Memorial Dog Park covers an entire acre and is right next door. The park is split into two fenced in areas, each of which is equipped with a watering station for the dogs, benches in the shade for you to sit on, and a place to rinse your pup off and cool them down at the end of playtime and before you head home.
