The community of Southwinds sits on the corner of Madeline Avenue and South Clyde Morris Boulevard. For neighbors, you have the Atlantic High School Volusia and a Walmart Neighborhood Market. Living here puts you very close to the point at which the city boundaries of Port Orange and South Daytona blur together.
Southwinds is a bustling community with both South Clyde Morris Boulevard and Madeline Avenue staying busy from early in the morning as rush hour starts and well into the evening. Being next door to a high school means not only dealing with school buses at the appropriate times but with the extra traffic generated by those students who have cars.
The good news is that you're close to the shops all along Dunlawton Avenue, the bridge over to the beach, and I-95 if you commute to points north, south, or west for your daily job. There are also parks nearby for you to enjoy and endless good weather to make the most of.
If there is one thing you can count on when it comes to living in suburbia, it has to be the houses lining up in neat rows with just enough room between them to offer a little privacy. Southwinds is a working family community that more than lives up to this image. The houses here are neatly arranged on a looping road with multiple cul-de-sacs. While traffic on the loop may be heavy during the usual rush hours, during the rest of the day, it should be restricted to the mail carrier and light local traffic only.
As a family-friendly community, you are also likely to encounter high school students walking to and from school and kids of all ages out at play. Use a short leash to help you maintain better control of your dog and eliminate the risk of anyone suffering an injury or an awkward encounter!
The community sits alongside the Southwinds Sports Complex which, when no one is using the soccer fields, offers plenty of grass for you and your dog to run around on and enjoy a little playtime. To the east, you will find Dunlawton Sugar Mill Gardens, a large botanical park with several well-kept gardens to enjoy along with a few nature trails.
The local dog park is only a short drive away on Spruce Creek Drive. The Seemore Memorial Dog Park is right next door to the All Children's Park. The dog park offers one acre of shady ground that has been sectioned off into two fenced areas. The areas are intended to keep larger and smaller breeds apart for safety and have watering and rinsing stations for the pooches as well. You will also find plenty of benches in the shade for you to relax on while your dog goes and plays with the others.
