Summerfield is a small, single-family home community sitting in a quiet cul-de-sac on Spruce Creek Road and south of Taylor Road. Living here puts you close to the many shops and restaurants at the intersection of I-95 and Dunlawton Avenue. Living here puts you near grocery stores, pet supply stores, and a large selection of chain restaurants for you to choose from.
Being this close to I-95 is ideal for those who commute to places like Daytona Beach, the Cape, and all points north and south. At the same time, you are far enough away from it to not be bothered by the noise it generates.
Along with this, your home is close to several green spaces to take your dog out to play in. Some are close like the dog park and the beach while others, like the Doris Leeper Spruce Creek Preserve, will take you a bit longer to reach, but are well worth the time it takes to do so.
As far as neighborhoods go, Summerfield is a quiet place to live. Spruce Creek Road tends to be a bit busier, especially during the morning and evening rush hours and when the school buses are running. The best way to avoid this traffic is to plan your walks together during "off-peak" hours when there are far fewer vehicles on the roads.
While the land here is relatively flat, there are sidewalks in the community for you and your pup to use. The same applies to going outside of the neighborhood as there is a wide sidewalk running along the east side of Spruce Creek Road and throughout the nearby communities. This should give both you and your pooch plenty of room to stretch your legs and get in some much-needed exercise. The good news is that there are plenty of places to go walking to help keep your walks a little more interesting.
The closest green space for you and your dog to hang out in is the Seemore Memorial Dog Park one mile to the north on Spruce Creek Road. The park offers fenced-in areas for large and small breeds and watering stations to help your dog stay hydrated during the scorching summer heat. There are even benches for you and your fellow dog owners to relax on while your pup gets out there and plays with the other dogs in the park.
If the beach is more your scene, it's only a ten-minute drive from your home. Here, you can enjoy the soft sand and a great workout or the firm, wet sand where the two of you can go for a casual stroll while you search for shells and sand dollars. The best time to head out for your walks is early in the morning before the beach starts to look like a parking lot.
