Shallowbrook at Dunlawton Hills is a modest residential community of single-family homes set at the intersection of Jackson Street and Spruce Creek Road. The houses are set among four lakes with two cul-de-sacs. The homes here are placed very close together and each home covers most of the lot it sits on, leaving little room for your dog to do more than use the bathroom.
Fortunately, the neighbor is across Spruce Creek Road from Buschman Park and the Margaret Buschman Parcel, which is a great place to take your dog and your family for walks and outings.
To the west on Jackson Street is Dunlawton Avenue, the main east-west road through town. It runs from the I-95 interchange east through town to where it ends at the beach. Along both sides of this vital road are most big box stores, supermarkets, small businesses, and great local and chain restaurants to check out.
Shallowbrook at Dunlawton Hills is a quiet family neighborhood where the homes are packed close together along two roads and two cul-de-sacs. Vehicular traffic is limited to those who live here going to and from work, the school buses, and the mail carrier. Luckily, there are sidewalks for the two of you to walk on and grass berms for your dog to stroll on soft terrain.
While you might not see much in the way of cars, you are within a tight-knit family community. This means you should expect to see quite a few pedestrians in the area. For a particularly skittish or nervous pup, you should venture to some quieter, open areas or greenways in the nearby vicinity to keep some distance between you and passing strangers.
Luckily, this neighborhood is a great place to stroll no matter where you are with flat terrain and easy-to-navigate streets.
Right across the street is Buschman Park and the Margaret Bushman Parcel. These two areas combine to create a vast park and play area for your entire family, including the one with the waggly tail. Here, you will find a large lake with a paved walking path around it, lots of nature trails running through the woods that cover both the park and the parcel, and a fishing dock that stretches out into the lake with a pavilion on the end of it.
If you take Dunlawton Avenue and go east over the Halifax River, your journey will end at the beach. In Port Orange, you can drive right out on the sand and park your car! From there, you and your dog can hike as far as you are comfortable with. Do keep in mind that no matter how far the two of you walk, you must be able to walk back unless you plan to call for a taxi!
