The Silver Oak residential community sits at the corner of Oak Street and Spruce Creek Road. It's a tiny neighborhood of duplexes on Kokomo Circle. The community itself is relatively safe and quiet, being on its own cul-de-sac. You and your family can enjoy being outside and taking your dog for walks during the day, but at night, you might want to buddy up for safety.
Being close to Dunlawton Avenue means not having to drive very far to find essential amenities such as a grocery store, numerous restaurants, or banks. The grocery store carries a range of pet supplies, but there are several stores with everything you could possibly need for your pooch or any other pets you might have.
Dunlawton Avenue will also take you and Fido over to the beach where the two of you can spend countless hours hiking for as many miles as you can, enjoying the fresh salt air and Florida sunshine.
This is small "pocket" community sitting on a cul-de-sac and the only times of the day you are likely to see much in the way of traffic is during morning and evening rush hours. Directly to the south is a small patch of woods where you might find a few trails to walk on in the shade.
Beyond this, the two of you are relegated to hiking on the sidewalks. Fortunately, there are sidewalks in Silver Oak and the surrounding neighborhoods you can use for your daily walks. The best way to ensure you are both getting enough exercise is to keep adding more blocks to your walks until you feel you have reached your limit!
The one thing that seems to be missing on most of the streets around here seems to be trees. Most of your walking will be done in the full glare of the sun. If you can, go for your walks early in the morning before things start heating up.
Beyond the small copse of woods to the south, the next nearest green spaces are a little further south on Spruce Creek Road. Here, you will find Buschman Park which is a picturesque place to take the family for a picnic, the dog for a walk, or both at the same time! There is a scenic lake to walk around, a pavilion for picnics, and a boardwalk. There is a dock to fish from, workout equipment available, and plenty of grass for you and your dog to play around on as well.
Across the street from Buschman Park is the Margaret Buschman Parcel, a large wooded area with a big lake. Here, you will find a number of paved nature trails to hike on and plenty of shady woods for the two of you to explore on the trails running through them. This is a very popular place for dog walkers in the summer months.
